      Two nearly identical 1980 Beech Skippers

      Very nice primary training aircraft with very docile flight characteristics

      Several kids on Kauai got their airline careers started in these Skippers.


      Lynx 9000 ADSB – WiFi connects to Forefight map on iPad for traffic and navigation

      Apollo/Garmin SL-30 NAV/COM (can monitor standby so it is like two comm radios in one) with two place intercom

      Whelen wing tip strobes added in 2017

      GARMIN Angle of Attach system installed in 2014

      Painted in Arizona in 2013

      JPI engine monitoring on each cylinder

      30 gallon fuel capacity

      7 gallon per hour

      Regularly flown Kauai to Oahu (once or twice to Molokai and Maui)


      These are slow aircraft that climb slowly but the FAA measures hours, not miles; so who cares.


      Very roomy cabin compared to a C-150, comfortable for instructors.
