Well, I knew the day was probably coming. With kids going off to college and me no longer traveling weekly to the client, the Q200 no longer fits my mission. My wife and I want a plane we can shuffle kids back and forth to/from college as well as go back to Colorado flying vacations with all five of us.
I just brought home a new to me Turbo 210 from Seattle down to Dallas and sadly have decided it doesn't make sense to keep the Quickie.
I wanted to let this group know that it is for sale first to hopefully find the right person. However, I have not settled on a price yet but will work on that soon.
It will likely be the most expensive listing for a Q200 given the upgrades recently made. If I can find a larger hangar asap then I will keep it but I don't think the odds are good of finding one.
Fuel injected Continental O-200A

Probably some other upgrades that I am forgetting...
If you know of someone looking for one of our unique planes feel free to let them know to reach out to me. I would very much prefer for it to go to someone that is already familiar with Quickies.
