Dear Kolb Forum Members,

It's been ages I don't post here. Life has been busy!

I write this topic because I am starting to consider the notion of selling my beautiful Firestar II. Note I say consider because it is not an easy decision for me and not fully decided, but I don't have the energy I used to have and owning 3 airplanes is becoming too much.

With that said, what are Kolb Firestar IIs worth these days? This airplane is fantastic looking, minimal hangar rash and it won second place (Outstanding Light Plane) at Sun'n Fun back in 98 (or 99). It looks the same now as it did then (really!). It performs great with the 503 which is around 190-200 hours old.

It has been a great airplane for the Slow'n Slow side of things and very sad to even consider selling it but lets see where this goes.

Here is a recent picture.

Chris

I guess the picture was too big and seems to be chopped up. But it does give you a chance to see it closer. Here is a smaller picture.

Any idea what you would like to get out of your Firestar? I bought mine is Taos NM about year and a half ago for $5k. My Bro is looking for one. Mine is # 9149G Chic

Hi and thanks for the reply. Don't know yet what I would ask for my airplane. I did look in Barnstormers and saw a wide variation of prices for the Kolbs.

But I think that if all I could get for it is in the price you mentioned ($5K) I would probably just hang it from my hangar ceiling and enjoy how pretty it is Smile

Best Regards,
Chris
