I have owned this airplane for seven
years and have flown it about 700 hours. It is a reliable old
I have always spent the money to have good maintenance.
One of the first trips I made in a previous Cessna 310 was to TAS Aviation in Defiance, “Ohio. I arrived in the morning and left the next day with the landing gear totally rigged and rebuilt. (a pile of removed parts that cost more than the labor) This was for preventative maintenance. The most common reason for a Cessna Twin to be totaled is because of lack of gear maintenance. Over one third of the Cessna 310’s lost are because of landing gear failure.
proved to be a Seminal moment. It led to a long relationship
with a shop that works on 200 twin Cessna’s a year. For
example, there is a bolt in the landing gear that gets bent and worn,
there is no AD, there is no Service bulletin on it. But Tony, as
matter of practice, replaces it at 500 hours in use. And when you see
it, you are glad it has been replaced.
airplane has served me well. It has been reliable, it completes it
trips. It is now available for sale.
If I cannot get a price that reflects the condition of this airplane, I do not need to sell it.
If you want an airplane that has been maintained to very high standards, READ ON.

The interior is about a 7; It is used serviceable, original.
The exterior is a 6 and is original 1976 paint.
The panal has an HSI, Garmin 530 WASS, and a full complement of steam gauges and Copilot instruments.
The electric air conditioning is an added plus; you can have the airplane cooling before you start up; plug in the GPU and turn the system on.
So often a person purchases a twin airplane and takes it to the paint shop, interior shop and then the radio shop. Easily spending over $120,000.
When they go in for repairs or annual they discover that there is extensive work required and they say “hey, I just spent $120,000 on the airplane and now you want $90,000 to do and annual and fix the faults”
that is not the this airplane;
it has good bones and is well maintained. You know up front that you have a solid basis for whatever improvements you might want.
of the extensive annuals are available upon request.
