Designed to replace the Piper Apache, the Twin Comanche offers a speed-fuel-burn ratio almost unmatched in the light complex twin segment. Compared to the Piper PA-44 Seminole, the PA-30 is faster, offers superior climb performance, a quieter cabin, cheaper operating costs - and carries more weight.

This beautifully presented and appointed IFR aircraft is fitted with a full suite of speed mods, a glass IFR cockpit with backup instrumentation and multiple optional extras, offering the new owner unrivalled utility for many years to come.
