Is the pilot door available for purchase?

Thatís what I came here to ask. Or the other engine, or Ö.

Good day all,

Just got back from my S.America trip. No real issues or problems, aircraft performed great even in and out of Cusco airport at 10,850 Ft. My wife started an Instagram account: airsafari.sa if anyone is interested. Visited 14 Countries, 22 landings, 58 hours of flying. I will post details of route, costs etc when I have more time.

Great aircraft for this sort of trip.

Cheers,
Peter Fraser

Sorry for delay on this flu in the house and then holidays.  Just waiting to confirm all with the boss (aka dad), but I think Bruce is right though.

I'm reading a biography of Jerrie Cobb and Jackie Cochran, and now I understand this picture. I always wondered why the panel looked so empty-- well, that airplane is a 680E she used to set both speed and altitude records, and it was as stripped down as it could be. I think maybe she had a handheld radio, and that was it.

Aero Commander Chief Test Pilot and later sales and demo pilot Jerrie Cobb... who also set a bunch of records in Commander 680Es and 680Fs...

General Discussion / Happy Thanksgiving 2022!

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all, for 2022!

Anyone go anywhere cool? I am at home pet-sitting for my daughter, personally, but expect to be back out there in a week or so. And, to be fair, just returned from Borrego, so there is that...

I like the Trislander idea. :)

Seriously - I don't want to lose the plane for 6+ months during an overhaul. My RH engine needs an overhaul - I'm going to hang this one on the plane and OH the right one.

Central Cylinder Service and/or Certified Engine. Those are top end places.

Best of Luck
