The 680F is the one I like! More power is always good!

I like how the 680F is almost indistinguishable from a 500, but has enough juice stuffed in those cowlings to outrun any light twin.

Hey Popeye,

I haven't seen your plane on flightaware this year. If I can't find the time or money to fly, I always get a kick out of seeing what your hotrod is up to.

Thanks for looking out. Indeed I did fly a few months back, but a piece in the nose wheel broke so back doors would not come up. Should have been an easy fix. But the people working it turned into a project, taht took them a couple of months, coincidentally running my annual to expire. So now I am at annual, so I should be taking a spin in a few weeks, and start flying anywhere I can find a hangar at an acceptable price. KTMB became prohibitive at $3000/month large T, and must do maintenance with their shop. So....give me an address and I can enjoy the flight there. N630TA

Come on members. Let's help a brother out. Somebody in South Florida must have hangar space for a Commander that is a little more reasonable than 3k/month?

What is the best shop to trust with your piston Commander in the SE US?
 
Is anybody taking their plane Central Air Southwest? I've heard, maybe third hand, they don't have time to take on GA commanders right now.

I'm on the opposite corner of the country, or I'd have some suggestions-- sorry!
