I fly this aircraft to work most every day. It has not sat and deteriorated. I am selling because I have purchased another aircraft. I have never seen another Comanche as equipped as this one. I built this airplane to keep. Over $100,000 was spent in in avionics and panel upgrade. Many Comanches are available in the $80k range but they are not equipped and don"t look like this one. This is a truly rare bird. Don"t miss a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a great aircraft.
