Detailed Description

For similar money, check out our Commander 112TC.  A very nice, capable, 145kt plane for $85,000.  Yes, you can learn to fly in it. 
You'll need lots of dual for insurance. By the time you have it, you'll be totally comfortable with the 'complex' nature of the plane 
AND you'll have a legitimate, IFR WAAS, modern Auto Pilot and some extra horsepower.  You can afford the fuel or you should take up sailing.

Clean, decent, attractive Blue and White Paint Scheme.  Some repairs on wing upper skins but well repaired and 'ancient history'.  
Good glass, all logs. 
We sold this ship two years ago and it underwent a thorough $5000 annual with Uvionix ADSB added.

Shop overhaul but well done, flying regularly.

Interior / Exterior

Attractive fabric in overall very nice condition. Older but really pretty nice.  Not anything odd!
Some trim could use repair but presentable.


Sold this two years ago, purchased from National FBO manager who overhauled the engine then lost his job.  He love the plane:  I encouraged my friend who was learning to fly that this was a 'known quantity', I'd flown it and it was nice.  With a new engine, I said, you can fly it and at least break even after you've built some hours.  
That friend has now purchased a Commander 112TC (with us as partners) and needs to sell the 'Muskrat' as we fondly call it.
He's been flying it around Northern New Mexico, into Denver, Colorado Springs, Alamosa, Santa Fe, Texas and it has performed pretty much flawlessly. 
It got a fresh alternator recently but otherwise is a 'good to go' little ship to train in, rent if you wanted to, get your IFR ticket cheaply, just have fun flying it.   Price is pretty firm; a clean 'no issues' little Beechcraft is rare, especially with a nice panel, 180HP is economical and adequate, even at our altitude.
