RV 6, 7, and 14.
IINM Rans S6.
Beech 33.
RV's are great but you cannot get one at an affordable price around half a million mark.
Rans is a bit tight and no place for the dogs.
Are there any aerobatic Beech 33 's in SA?
Bird aviation in Vereniging had a Robin Alpha 160 side by side aerobatic aerie for sale in you price range. Maybe its still available..

I have a enquiry from overseas for a 150/152 Cessna Aerobat - Are there any in EXCELLENT CONDITION that are for sale ?

We know about ZS-FXH but the log books only go back to 1999 ; in order to register overseas the authorities want "birth log books" going back to when the aircraft was manufactured - Another requirement ; it must have passed the SIDs inspection

Please contact me if you have one for sale tom@jpom.ca

Keep your eye out for a 160hp fixed pitch RV6. They sometimes go for as low as R600k, which is a steal if you ask me.
I know there's a lot of money in aviation because I put it there.

What about a Luscombe?
Cruises a little faster than a 150 and is TONS of fun.

Trouble is that she's been all over the place - 3D-LLG(3), ZS-FXH, A2-FXH, ZS-FXH, N8309M so those logbooks could be anywhere. Just as a matter of interest she was the 9th Aerobat off the production line in 1969.
