You don't see them very often. Not many out there.

Great trainer and low cost personal twin. Our airfueld used to have 5 or 6 but down to one complete one now.

Trained for and received my Multi in a Cougar in 2003. Don’t remember any bad habits. Seemed like a pretty decent plane.

I flew one into Punta Gorda about 2 years ago. I was building multi time and befriended a guy that owned one and was building time too. When we landed, the lady controller in the tower came on the radio and asked what kind of plane it was. I quickly replied, "She's a plane that likes young men,........ a Cougar" She laughed and laughed at that one.

Guess I found the reason why Jimmy Johnson's airplane is N480JJ and not N48JJ.

There were something like 189 of them made in Savannah and they are fantastic airplanes to fly. However, I certainly like the TravelAir over the Cougar!

They have a Cougar on the line with Aviation Adventures at KJYO and it's a great plane to fly. I believe they have it down for paint as I haven't seen it on the ramp recently.

My brother has quite a few parts for them - many NOS in case anyone is interested. I picked up what I thought was an oil pan the other day and it is an interior plastic pressing :-)

We've operated one in our flight school since 2006, always looking for parts.

I'm currently needing a landing gear selector lever pn 7FM10712-13, fig 32-19-23 if your brother has stock.
