Anyone flown a Wing Derringer twin? Looks like a small Seminole but with 2 seats. Saw one for sale in a magazine and it looks very interesting. They claim 200 MHP on 160 HP a side.

Aren't there only a few of those in existance? I think the manufacturer didn't have much luck selling them.

If so, I'd be concerned with parts availability.

I've seen one and sat in it. It's been a couple of years, but as I recall, there were some unique maintainance issues with avionics (access to them). It's certainly a niche airplane, but just looking at it, I'd believe it's a 200 mph aircraft.

Ernie Gann bought the first one and Dodie flew it in a number of races. She loved the airplane.
