Everyone is looking for signs that the U.S. general aviation industry has weathered the worst of the worldwide economic malaise and finally is moving into recovery mode. That certainly was the topic that commanded most conversations at the recent National Business Aviation Association Convention in Atlanta. One company that says things are turning around is Twin Commander Aircraft LLC.
“It was a very good show for us,” commented Twin Commander Aircraft President Matt Isley. “We teamed up with several of our largest authorized service centers to exhibit, and we were busy. Over the three days of the show we met with a number of existing owners and operators and also sat down with an encouraging number of prospects. The activity at our NBAA exhibit reflects the situation at our authorized service centers, which are busy with inspections, upgrades, and repairs.”
Twin Commander Aircraft owns the rights to all turboprop and piston-twin Commander models, and supports the worldwide fleet with replacement parts, upgrades, technical resources, and a worldwide network of independent authorized service centers.
The resale market for Twin Commanders also is healthier than in the recent past, according to Commander salesman Bruce Byerly of Naples Jet Center, who reports strong sales activity in recent weeks, especially for the JetProp Commander 1000. The inventory of available aircraft is the lowest in recent memory, he added.
Twin Commander LLC is following up its NBAA appearance with an exhibit at AOPA Aviation Summit in Long Beach, California, Nov. 11-13. Isley and representatives from authorized service centers Aero Air, Executive Aircraft Maintenance, and Eagle Creek Aviation Services will be at Airportfest, the Summit static display, at Long Beach/Daugherty Field, with a recently refurbished 690B Twin Commander.
