My IA mechanic buddy is selling this C172E with a 220hp Franklin conversion and constant speed prop for a customer. It's at 84R, about 30 miles ESE of Austin, TX. Would be a good starting point for someone wanting a "bush" plane or a float plane. $39,500

FYI. I have a plane with the Franklin 220. They are sweet. Silky smooth, gobs of power for the weight. I would imagine this is a nice flying machine.

And look at that price. Good luck with sale.

Yes, lots of Stinsons still flying with Franklins. But you do have to go on a "treasure hunt" once in a while.

How the hell did you fit 4 skydivers in a 172? I've had a hard time sometimes squeezing 4 in a 182. Any useful load & CG issues with it?

Many jump planes don't have seats except for the pilot, the self unloading ballast just sits on the floor of a stripped interior.

The key to fitting skydivers into a 172 is making sure they’re comfortable getting intimate during the ride up. Oftentimes “Tandem Instructors” after a ride to altitude followed by a skydive leads to marriage proposals from their female clientele—— no joke.
Besides the Franklin will provide the “smooth power” necessary for the ride.

To give you the idea of the performance of this motor I have the 220 Franklin in an aircraft of similar weight and it’s off the ground in about 200ft and climbing about 2500 for the first minute then 1500ft a minute followed by a steady climb of 1000 for a minute there after

These were rated for a helicopter at 3200 RPM and derated to 2800 so you can basically firewall it and if you’ve got a constant speed prop you’re good to go for full duty cycle to altitude.
Having said that they are quirky motors and do require some attention to operation and you’ll need to find somebody that knows how to work on them because they’re not your standard Lycosaurus.

I understand that, I’ve got about 100 jumps out of a 182, that’s why I’m surprised that 4 would fit in the 172 and wouldn’t create a W&B issue.
