Hey, all.

I recently purchased a 1970 337D, a plane that has captivated me since I was a kid. I look forward to to learning as much as I can about the type and this organization was the logical starting point.

This is the third plane I’ve owned, the first two being Pipers (Cherokee 6 and Archer; long story on the progression). I was originally looking at a Saratoga because I was familiar with the type and needed a plane with easy access for elderly family members that can’t crawl up on a wing. But the cost of a decent Saratoga or 6 was way too much. A friend who owned a 337 in the past recommended I look at the type and what I found was interesting. Not the fastest, but fast enough; not the most efficient, but not bad either. Carries a good load and easy to get in and out of. And not too expensive to buy (yes, I know about inexpensive twins and maintaining them). The maintenance shop at my home field had a SkyMaster that they used to get around and when I asked them about the plane, they said theirs was for sale. Three owners since 1970 and well

cared for. Most important; my wife loves it!

Been around planes and flying them since I was 14, now with 35 years of professional flying under my belt, most of it airline. Looking forward to this new adventure!
