There are lots of S1's available.  For 30K you should be able to find 
a top notch aircraft.  You underestimate yourself as far as training 
time.  Are you already solo akro qualified (citabria/decathlon)?  If 
not, then no hurry for the Pitts cause you need to learn the 
fundamentals first.  Besides, I shopped for >6 months before finding 
the right airplane for me (in North Carolina no less!).  Herb offers 
great advice, but I wouldn't buy anything from him without thorough 
market research first.

I'm rebuilding my S1E now in Cupertino, based at RHV.  I'm in chapter 
38.  Let's talk.  home 408-257-3676 if you want.

     To:  IAC                                                                   

Hi, I'm new to the world of IAC but have the heart and desire to learn 
acrobatics from qualified instructors and fly safely.

I'm looking for a low to mid time Pitts S1S for competition acrobatics. I 
would like to learn in the aircraft for the next 10 to 15 years to become 
accustom to the aircraft. I'm currently building a Glasair Super IIs for 
travel but can fit a Pitts or other small acro plane in the hanger. I'm 
located in San Jose, Ca and looking at a frame currently from Herb Ross. 
Mr. Ross at this time is asking higher than I can afford ($25K) uncovered 
and lower wings not assembled. 

I buy and sell engines, instruments, and King radio's from downed aircraft 
so I can find engines if a project is avalible. Please call me at (408) 
451-8126 or send pictures and spec's to:

1397 Boysea Drive
San Jose, Ca 95118

Thank you for your help finding a safe and strong aircraft!!

Regards,
Mark Schrick

P.S. I have not joined a chapter yet. Will look into Chapter 38 in Hayward, 
Ca. Cris Flint has helped me in the past. (Nice Guy!)
