 SOLD - 1947 Cessna 195 - SOLD

N4331N is the 78th Cessna 190/195 built, with an Airworthiness Certificate issued in 1947.  Recently rebuilt by John Collett and Butterfly Aviation, this Businessliner has most of the desirable modifications and optional equipment, as well as a low time engine and propeller.  This plane is ready to go with a recent annual and dual yoke.

N4331N was returned to service in 2003 after repairs (due to a stuck brake on landing) by John Collett of Butterfly Aviation, Goodland Kansas.  Included in the rebuild was a fresh engine from Radial Engines LTD of Guthrie OK, Fresh prop from Precision in Greeley CO, Prop Governor OH, Alternator OH, Fresh Lord Mounts, Fresh Oil and Fuel Hoses, Fresh Fuel MAP and Oil Pressure Lines, all new aircraft wiring installed, Barron clean kit, Barron aileron inboard hinge kit, Ray's locking tailwheel kit, Cessna fuel cap upgrade kit, BAS harnesses, BAS tail pull handles, new left fuel bladder, and new paint.

N4331N has a relatively dry history for a Cessna 195.  The first owner was Nick Dellere of Manhattan, Kansas, who purchased the plane from Yingling Aircraft in 1947.  In 1968 Dick Nolan, an aircraft dealer in Greeley CO purchased the plane from the original owner, quickly reselling the plane to WJ Henrick of Redondo Beach, California.  After owning the plane for 6 months, WJ Henrich sold to Edgar Hood of Palmdale California, in the desert just over the hill from Southern California's San Fernando Valley.  The next owner was M. Mark Jackson of Lake Montezuma Arizona, who owned the plane from 1972 to 1979.  George L. Koch of Tucson Arizona appears to be the 5th owner (dealers aside) from 1979 to 1984.  In 1984 a dentist in Tucson by the name of Charles R. Griffin Jr purchased N4331N, owning the plane until it was repossessed in 1986.  Off to Parker Colorado in 1986 after Roy Fisher purchased the plane from the Valley National Bank.  In 1992,  the 78th Cessna 195 built made its way to the current owner, a rocket scientist based in Boulder Colorado.  Medical issues have encouraged the sale of this Golden Age Cessna.

This plane is hangared at the Longmont Vance Brand Airport and available for inspection on appointment.
