Aircraft Description

This outstanding Twin Comanche had a panel upgrade in 2020. A Garmin 530W WAAS GPS/NAV/COM was installed in the aircraft radio stack. The Garmin 530W was interfaced to the dedicated Bendix King 525A HSI and the Garmin GMA 345 Audio Panel.

As a secondary NAV/COM, there is a Garmin SL30 in the radio stack. The high performance Digital Signal Processing (DSP) filter design of the SL30 allows it to track weaker VOR signals with more accuracy than conventional analog receivers.

A Garmin GTX 345 is installed for your ADS-B In/Out requirements. See the traffic around you on the screen of the Garmin 530W .

The audio panel is a Garmin GMA 345, which has blue-tooth connectivity, so you can listen to music during your flights.

In 1972, this Twin Comanche received counter-rotating engines Lycoming IO 320-B1A, giving it flight characteristics similar to a PA-39. Shortly after, the airplane received the Robertson/STOL high lift system, making it suitable for takeoffs and landings on short runways. You will be surprised with the very low stall speeds and the undeniable docile pre-stall characteristics.

The Twin Comanche is not intended to be a multi-engine trainer, but it will provide an excellent platform for your cross-country needs and a cost-effective method for multi-engine time building. It is equipped with the Century III Autopilot Flight System, an automatic flight system utilizing an advanced electronic design for maximum performance and utility. Operating on the versatile and adaptable 5000 cycle audio frequency, the Century III represents a revolutionary design concept in which the conventional follow up, or control position feed back signals, are replaced by solid state analytical computers. In addition to providing a more stable and adaptable auto-pilot platform for advanced navigational coupling, this system can cope with uneven fuel loads, directional mis-trim and power changes without the usual directional errors, altitude losses, or command change requirements.

Come and enjoy this unique PA-30 in the Club’s fleet.
