But this is a quick and easy install because I am told the ADSB antenna can be mounted forward of the panel without intrusion into the pressure vessel. (Note on ADSB: While Garmin has a huge market share, I have enjoyed great performance in othe aircraft from the NGT-9000 Lynx all in one unit with its on built-in displays of traffic and weather, and you can split the screens. Displays on your Iphone and Ipad simultaneously through Foreflight and others)

Aircraft is one of the most stable designs ever produced. Tremendous rudder authority, like a 737, makes it much easier to control than any other twin up to and through and it"s category.
The Aero Commander, in case you didn"t know, is one of the best built aircraft in the world. Read the history and you"ll know why. Truly built to military standards. Aero Commander was chosen by US President Dwight D. Eisenhower to be his Presidential aircraft.The landing gear is super strong and can be lowered at 180 mph. It is overbuilt and rarely are problems reported with this system.Airplane has newly overhauled magnetos this year, fuel pump on RE. Stainless steel sleeved lifetime hydraulic hoses throughout. Airplane has been maintained to excellence, but like all aircraft, even brand new ones, needs TLC on various areas to be perfect. Deice Boots will need replacing at some point/ Air conditioning is scheduled to receive some attention. Blowing not quite as cold as brand new, but it feels good now. Auto pilot is an old system and is disabled. At the price you"ll pay, you"ll be happy to spend some money on a good autopilot. The auto-pilot servo platforms are already in place for the flight controls, and the installation can move along faster than beginning from zero. Pressurization operates but suspect some leaks, as all pressurized birds do. With all that said, you can get in and fire it up and it will take where you want to go quickly and quietly. Right now.Log entries available. Priced accordingly. Bid and you"ll find out how reasonable you might be able to own a beautiful, amazing, super rare Twin Commander. You only go around once!
