Up for auction is my 1961 Piper Comanche. Recently flown in Sept. 2021 and sold as-is. Great little plane with good passenger and baggage carrying capacity. These are becoming more and more rare. 60 gallon fuel capacity. Lycoming 180hp engine. Retractable gear. Last annual sign off was June 2021. Had it over 2 years. Medical condition is forcing me to sell otherwise she may sit on the ramp indefinitely. Looks-wise she is not a show plane, but paint is still in decent condition. Interior looks good. Full IFR package. Engine runs strong. Garmin 430 series GPS with WAAS. Newer transponder with ADSB out. Secondary 300 series Garmin for more situational awareness. Manual flaps. I flew her at least 1x per month and washed/waxed her regularly. Times shown below:
TTAF: 5600TT Engine: 3273.11TT Prop: 827.81SMOH Engine: 1367.37SMOH Prop: 318.08
Serial Number is: 24-2645Tail Number is: N7455P
Logs indicate engine was overhauled in 1992. As for major repairs, logs indicate belly skin replacement in the early 90"s. Full AD list is posted in the pics. Latest logs as well. I do not have complete electronic logs but am willing to answer any questions over messaging (I will not give out any personal information before purchase). Maintenance logs I have go back to 80s/90s and there are some older incomplete documents as well. As of Oct. 2021 she does need a new transponder check and log entry. Was last done in 2019. She is also waiting to have a new battery delivered. I will have a fresh battery installed for you but you will have to take care of the transponder check. The "buy it now" price takes this cost into account. The plane shares a ramp with Regal Air and they can perform the check for you if you do not want to get a ferry permit.
Please do some research before bidding on this airplane, ownership costs, ferry costs, and insurance costs. Serious buyers only. Plane is located in Everett WA at Paine Field (KPAE) at the EAST ramp if you want to look at it from behind the fence or have a way to fly in and taxi to it. Current date: 2021-10-30
