Message From the Owner:
I purchased my plane back in 2015 from a friend who had owned it since the mid 1980’s. He used it for personal transportation to get around in Alaska. My primary purpose was to provide a safe, reliable platform for my Son to get his private certificate. As it turned out, becoming a pilot was not a fit for him, but a close friend of his was able to benefit by using the plane to obtain his private license. He then went on to fly for the Air Force. As a retired airline pilot, maintenance and reliability was what mattered to me….not cosmetics. I therefore made sure to address any and all mechanical concerns in order to fulfill that philosophy. Unfortunately, I no longer have a use for the plane and therefore decided to let it go. ~Matt
