Odd question- but I have always have been curious.
Can someone explain why a westwind looks very familiar to the body style of the commander? Yet they did have the jet commander, was either related to the rockwell/gulfstream programs?
Aero Design and Engineering designed and built the Jet Commander as well as the various piston and Turbo Commander models. Then, they sold the company to Rockwell.
Rockwell was already building the Sabreliner, and antitrust issues required them to sell one of the business jet lines-- either Jet Commander or Sabreliner. They had big military contracts for the Sabreliner and so elected to sell the Jet Commander program to Israeli Aircraft
Interestingly enough, the last Sabreliner was built sometime in the early 1980s, while the last G150 (the final derivative of the Westwind/Jet Commander line) was built in 2017... did Rockwell make the right choice?
