Many general aviation pilots who are determined to advance to ever more complex high-performance aircraft will eventually end up in pressurized cabin-class twins. Those wishing to give their passengers an airliner experience could do it easily in this Beechcraft B60 Duke.
Fred, a longtime pilot friend who encouraged me to train for a private pilot certificate, owned several aircraft through the years including a Citabria, Cessna 182, and Piper Aztec. He had nice things to say about all of them, but the best stories always focused on the Duke, the last airplane he bought and clearly the most satisfying for him to fly. I think of him every time I see a Duke on the ramp.
This 1978 Beechcraft B60 Duke has 1,950 hours on the airframe and 1,200 hours on each engine. The panel includes a Garmin 530 WAAS, 430 WAAS, Century 41 autopilot, Garmin transponder, Stormscope, radar, and ADF.
Pilots who want the smooth, speedy and comfortable high-altitude cruise available with powerful engines and a pressurized cabin should consider this 1978 Beechcraft B60 Duke, which is available for $339,000 on AircraftForSale.
