For Sale



After departing from the aerobatic scene, Mel Broad (co-founder of Cuban Air) wishes to part with his beautifully finished and highly maintained Cuban Eight RS. This particular aircraft is the second prototype of the popular 60-90 size F3A aerobatics model which paved the way for the production model. Designed and built in 1997 this aircraft was barely used until the '98 F3A season competing in the Senior class and earning good points scores consistently. Kept in the hanger again until the 2000 season when it was also flown by his son Chris Broad earning masters points in local competitions. Now in 2002, Mel has departed the aerobatic scene as a pilot for the foreseeable future and has put the Cuban Eight RS up for sale.

The Cuban Eight RS would make an ideal model for a pilot who is new to F3A aerobatics and who cannot afford the expense of the newer French fibreglass models. It would also appeal to someone who is already established in the scene and will perform all the way to top, regularly being seen in masters competitions.
