A Cessna 421 gave way to a Cessna 340, which gave way to a Cessna 425. Then, in the mid-1990s, he upgraded to a used CJ-1. He liked the CJ-1. But in addition to his main base in Orlando, Florida, Pugh has a home in Aspen, Colorado, and Aspen was beyond the range of the CJ-1. So in 2007, Pugh bought a new CJ-3. He couldn't be happier with his purchase.
