The best potty is at the FBO when you make enroute stops. The women I know can go longer than I can without a stop. :eek:

We prefer non-stops and often fly long range. In both my 421 and Navajo, the potty was a great addition. Sometimes just knowing its there is enough.

My wife made a remark that she’d rather fly commercial because she likes to have a bathroom on board...so my natural response was to increase my budget....

What’s the least expensive GA aircraft out there with a potty?


Just add about $100K to what your 172 is worth to get the answer; then enroute stops become more appealing. ;)

Yes dear, we will have a C90 with a potty. We will finance it by robbing the kitchen remodel fund <grin>.

A C150 plus a Gatoraid bottle is smaller than any the aircraft I have seen mentioned in this thread ROFL. :clap: :clap:

The camper potty in the King Air doesn't look bad. There's a normal potty seat, it just goes into a camper potty with kitty litter or whatever. And it has a curtain. You might look at one and see if there's a way to adopt it to your plane. Looks are more important to some, but when it's emptied, function is most important. With me, it was more kids that used it and one doesn't want kids holding things too long.

Cheapest-to-aquire full size potty plane single pilot? P180 Avanti, probably.

I had a camper flushing potty in the back of my '70 C414 and it worked great. 1973 and later 414s and my C421 have the built in bucket potty with a curtain. We would take a plastic bag with Depends turned inside out and put it in the bucket. The Depends removed any smells and made cleanup easy. There are C421s with real flushing pottys, but they're a PIA.

Amen. Like Rocky said, a little kitty litter in a bag is better than a flusher. It's all about convenience of disposal. You can have made - or make yourself - a curtain set-up to obtain privacy. A nephew researched and uses sawdust in the commode of his tiny home he built. Works great! Cover that kitty litter up with some sawdust shavings so that woodsey fragrance dampens out the kitty litter smell. Whenever the wife complains you're spending too much time on the woodworking projects - or too much money on the dust collection system, you can say... 'Baby, I'm just out here filling up your potty for our next trip! Happy Birthday Honey Bucket! I like that $159 camper toilet shown earlier... may have to go out and get one of those. I'm seeing some, uh, 'brownie' points in the sparkle of her eyes. :thumbup: ~ ME

A camping toilet won’t do... :(


Have you taken a look at what a toilet in a piston twin looks like? It’s a bucket under a toilet seat. If she’s expecting a commode with a flush handle it’ll take a PC-12 at minimum.


PC12 has a bucket, it's not a flush toilet.

My 421 had a nice potty, and it was considered by the family to be a good reason to get the plane. Turns out NOBODY ever used it. Except me.

I think just the presence of the potty takes away most of the need to use it. Except me.

PC12 has a bucket, it's not a flush toilet.


Even with the PTT option installed?

I’m pretty sure the NGs flush. It’s not externally serviceable though.

Ok I think I pulled a Trump and wasn't exactly clear :) It's a bucket, with a water container, it's all 100% mechanical and not what I consider a full "flush toilet", but you can flow water from a bucket to another bucket. So I guess it's "flushable" but not a very sophisticated system.
The line guys also hate servicing it.

If your wife is anything like mine.....

She wanted a potty on the boat; so I bought a boat bigger then we needed because it had a flushing head. Had the boat 10 years and NEVER ONCE did she use the head.

She wanted a potty on the new plane so that was a big consideration for chosing the Phenom over the Mustang (I wanted the Phenom anyway.....) have had the jet for three years and she NEVER ONCE has used the head.

So the take away answer is to have a "fake" potty; perhaps the bucket noted above. The fact that there is a toilet is enough to keep them from focussing on their micro-bladders. If she doesn't have a toilet she has to pee within minutes, if there is a toilet she can last for 3+ hours with no complaint.... women... :scratch:
