1959 Piper PA24-180 Comanche STOL


They say everything in aviation is a trade-off... Well, The Piper Comanche 180 STOL is definitely the exception.. Cruise Speeds up to140kts; 980m range; Bulletproof Lycoming O-360 engine (in this case, a Lycoming factory remanufactured engine), Cabin wider than a 182 by three inches; Burns a mere 9.5 gal hour..The only draw back to the PA24 has been its reputation for unpredictable flight characteristics at low speeds..WHAT IF you could have all those unheard of qualities in a plane that handles like a Cherokee at low speeds?? YOU CAN! It's this plane.. THE Robertson STOL Comanche 180.. You've likely never heard of one because this incredibly expensive mod is rarely added to the (generally regarded) "entry-level" Comanche 180, but is usually found on the Comanche 400's and Twin Comanches. Add the completely custom RED/WHITE/BLUE paint scheme to the mix and you have yourself a plane that is guaranteed to garner more attention than a brand new Cirrus!
