This is the opportunity to buy a beautiful, hangared cross country cruiser. Commander added a lot of innovation and "large airplane features" to these: very beefy landing gear, doors on both sides, spacious cockpit, rear and baggage compartment, illuminated step, etc. The 260hp IO-540 gives you 150 kts cruise easily somewhere between 12 - 13 gph, or a 160 kts max at around 14.5 gph.

Damage History: In 2011, runway excursion into soft grass resulted in prop strike, crumpled firewall, broken right main strut, and belly/fuselage damage.
