1966 Aztec, PA-23-250, S/N 27-3370, N33SA

This Aztec has some real history – it was owned and maintained by the United States Air Force! The plane was always hangered and lightly flown by the Charleston Air Force Base Aero Club pilots only. It was meticulously cared for and used for advanced training and southeast flying only. It has just come out of a $12,500 annual and is flown weekly. It looks and flies great.

The Aztec is a great handling aircraft, a heavy lifter, an incredibly stable instrument platform and a docile single engine performer. It will carry 6 people with bags and full tanks. The plane is set up for basic IFR but with a GPS it becomes a multiple mission airplane for both entry level and experience multiengine pilots. This is an economical and capable twin that is easy to fly and to insure – it really does “fly like a Cub”. I’ll bring it to a pre-buy for the cost of the gas!
