Maybe he has a fetish for big recips, and turbines are like meh.

Iíve seen that affliction before.

Roberto, is it an off the market sale? Can we check it out?

I think Adam's 680V is a better choice as well, unless you have some specific reason for wanting a piston-powered 680.

Adam, don't you need to do a hot section pretty soon? Or did that get resolved?

Roberto, buy my 680V turbine instead - no spar inspection ;)

Interesting... Let us know how it goes!

Instructional / Jean-Luc Pous for initial training

The scheduling didn't work out with Barry Lane, but we found Jean Luc Pous through Aviation Training Management. He has a fascinating life history according to this article: https://twincommander.com/feb-march-2017/.

I'm curious if anyone has flown with him or has experience to share in working with Aviation Training Management.

communicated with the broker listing 680fl as to spar inspection cost and he was quoted $20k-$50k.

Forgive my fascination with history.  Wish it was still 1981.   
Anyone have old pics of commander plant or the unsold commanders in a field during the 80's drought?

As Bruce provided earlier, seen in the attached pic.  I assume the completed airframes would cross NW50 St via a taxiway that no longer exists?  Does anyone know what building performed what function?

AD 94-04-13 (SB 90C) all S/N? might be a deal breaker between f vs fl

Correction.

I may be mistaken about the 500U, 680FL, and 680FLP. It looks like the late S/N planes (1731-1854) do have to comply with SB 208A. SB suggests 108 hours labor if spar corrosion is with limits.

Every 36 months
