Each day, the team at Aircraft For Sale picks an airplane that catches our attention because it is unique, represents a good deal, or has other interesting qualities. You can read Aircraft For Sale: Today’s Top Pick at daily.

When you mention that you fly a Commander or Aero Commander, people often assume you are talking about one of the company’s better-known twins, like the one that aviation legend Bob Hoover used to fly at airshows. I should know, since I fly one myself and have spent a lot of time explaining to FBO operators and air traffic controllers exactly what type of aircraft I am flying.

My 114B shares its airframe with the 112TC for sale here, but has a naturally aspirated engine while the TC is turbocharged. Either way, though, the Commander singles are rare birds that attract attention and start conversations on the ramp.

This Commander 112TC has 2,881 hours on the airframe and 1,260 hours on its Lycoming TO-360. The panel includes dual Garmin G5 instruments, GNS430W GPS, GTX 330ES transponder with ADS-B In and Out, and a Flight Stream 210 Bluetooth data link. The aircraft was repainted in 2015 and has its original leather interior.

Pilots looking for a practical, stylish, four-seat traveling machine should consider this Aero Commander 112TC, which is available for $170,000 on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the aircraft through FLYING Finance. For more information, email
