Saw one of these at my local FBO some years back - it is a beautiful airplane, and it is LOUD!! :hide: :hide:

I'm looking for a C55, D55, E55, 58 or 58TC equipped and priced like this 56TC. If there is one out there, or if you have one, please let me know. I would really like to get a 58P but my insurance guy said no go unless I have 100 hours in a pressurized twin. Don't know why that would be the case but it is what it is.

Regardless, I keep coming back to this post and looking at the pictures. I can only imagine what it would be like to push the throttles forward on 760 hp and scream down the runway. That would probably be a rush. Good luck with the sale.

Jim

It's amazing. Maybe more amazing is the 2000' FPM climb. I typically push the nose over for a 1,000-1,500 FPM climb...so I'm not looking at the sky.

The Turbo Baron is available. I'd like to say this politely....This is not a B55 with IO-470s (I own a B55 with IO-470s and it's a great airplane too) This is a different animal.

I honored my word and let the first guy have his chance at it....and it appears it wasn't the right fit for him.

To the new owner - If you overfly the field at 200kts and turn onto downwind you can make a sort of military style tactical approach where you let the turn blead off the speed then drop gear and flaps accordingly. You will however attract everyone out of their hangar with a "what the hell just flew over" expression on their face. Naturally they will be confused at first because "B55's don't sound like that!" and then "wait, what on earth are those engines!!"

It's tough but you'll just have to get used to it along with idling down the TIT's while your onlookers wait to hit you up with questions. Try not to be smug as few will ever ride a 55 airframe with two fire breathing dragons on board and we should feel pity. It may save you time if you placard the service ceiling, single engine service ceiling and max cruise on the side to save you having to answer that EVERY time. They will question your fuel flows though, always forgetting people own and fly C90's and Citation Mustangs. It's a private satisfaction that the 56TC is cooler than those aircraft but uses less fuel.

Find it in your heart to forgive ATC for referring to you as a King Air as they know not what they do. Requesting flight level 300 seems odd at first but it's worth a couple of trips to the edge of space, or so it feels with such large unpressurised windows to take in the vista, trust me.

That is a FANTASTIC summary of the 56TC. They have a sound as unique as their existence.

I thought Forum Policy was to list price in the post? (Did I miss it??)

The price was listed previously. IIRC it was $279,000 with an investment of $500,000 plus listed. I thought it was sold?

Once an airplane sells, many sellers edit the post to remove the listing price. It is pretty common.

Sadly, much as I want it, I'd have to add the cost of a divorce when my wife found out.....

I think I'd be safer getting an Italian mistress. (but not clear which would be more fun)

I’m not an underwriter, but that seems ridiculous. They’re fine with a 58TC but not a 58P??? Ask them to Please identify a pressurized twin which they would approve… :scratch:

Do they expect 100 hours of mentor time?
