Notes

High performance light aircraft. In service since 1968. Developed as response to the AERO COMMANDERS twins. Exists in several versions, last more powerful and turbocharged model PA-60-700P. Built first by TED SMITH (later AEROSTAR) INSERT INTO tblaircraftdatasupp VALUES United States, transfered to PIPER as PA-60 Aerostar in 1982.
