We currently have a vacancy for a new member to join our group.

About us:

We are a long-established and friendly group of professional people, so we need someone who will fit with both the group and the aircraft. The Cardinal Group consists of 10 members and owns a Cessna 177B Cardinal, based at Durham Tees Valley Airport, in the North East of England.

Our requirements are:

The aircraft

G-BDRO is 1975 Cessna 177B ‘Cardinal II’ (C177B): a four-seat tourer, with a recentley overhauled 180hp Lycoming O-360, driving a recently overhauled two-blade constant-speed prop. In cruise it will do 120kts IAS. It has an autopilot, an IFR-standard Garmin 430 avionics and Garmin Mode S transponder. The aircraft is maintained by Airspeed Of Derby who are the UK's Cardinal specalists.

The aircraft is kept in Hangar 3 at Durham Tees Valley Airport (EGNV), which is a large commercial airport with hard runways, VOR/DME, fuel, and an aircraft tug. We have a resident instructor who deals with conversions and renewals.

Availability is very good and booking is via a Web site, with email notification of the bookings of others. You can take the aircraft away on holiday etc. and there are no hard rules other than ‘be reasonable’.


All group members own a share in the aircraft.

All members pay a fixed monthly fee and an hourly wet fee based on tacho time.
