Can't believe this hasn't sold. This is an insane bargain. If people just knew how friggin' good Aerostars are, they'd be lining up.

I'm gobsmacked. :eek:

Nice, fast Aerostar with the Machen goodies. Lots of recent work done (logbooks available) to keep this airplane in great shape.

Note: This airplane's Right wing was replaced in 1977, along with a repair to the Right horizontal stabilizer tip. This work is recorded in the logbooks. This airplane will require a replacement windshield within 100 hours of flight time. It has been previously replaced and is coming due again.



What's the windshield cost?

About $20K new, half price for a used one with good times.

How much has it flown in the last year?

What is it current gross weight?

re: the Windscreen, I would agree with Adam on part cost; it is a labor intensive job to have replaced as well.

The gross weight is 6315, and the airplane flew about 50 hours between the last Annual inspections; I would have to check on the current usage is but I would imagine it is close to that for 2016.

Thanks!
-Gavin

Is the windshield a time A/D based thing, or is it condition based?

IE is there some flaw, or is it just due in 100hrs....

If its just due in 100 hrs is it an A/D or a service item, IE is part 91 bound to do the replacement?

The windshields are life limited per the type certificate data sheet. A little over 4000 hours as I recall. So you basically have no choice but to replace them.

seems like an awesome airplane. Perhaps there is some undeserved stigma with the wing replacement. I would definitely prefer any aircraft that had wing damage have the wing replaced vs repairing and reskining as long as the damage didn't extend to the spar attach points. Since the damaged part of the airframe was removed and replaced I would consider this a No Damage History airplane as far as value and performance are concerned.

Lynn, it's not exactly 4000hrs, I think it's some odd number like 4620hrs or so. The story goes that the machine counting the pressurization cycles/hours on the windscreen during certification broke at that point. Obviously their aim was to certify it for more hours, but rather than start over again from zero and lose valuable time in certification process, they said that's good enough and left it at that.

If you do get the updated pressurization (5.5psi upgrade and FL280 capability) via Aerostar Aircraft Inc, then the windscreen that goes in there was re-certified, so that screen has a much higher time. Don't know exactly, but I think it's in the 10000hr realm. It's the same windscreen as far as I understand, btw. Jim Christy here on the board will know exact numbers, as he did all the re-certification for the higher differential pressurization.

A 700 with the 5.5psi and FL280 capability is a total beast, btw. It will eat a KA90 for lunch, have single engine climb rates almost into the FL's. The Spirit of Kai Tak that did the London to Sydney race averaged 279kts. Average!

I think the number is 4860.

We can assume this plane had the windshield replaced 4760 hours ago.

I have the 5.5 upgrade, it is great, the components are the same as the Malibu so support, if needed, will be easy.

My windshield was close to reaching its hours limit so I figured I was looking at only a few more bucks to extend the time AND get the improved diff.

My 601P didn't get the 30K approval (restricted to 28K for RVSM), I think I'd want a quick don mask if I was going above 25K.
