* - This aircraft has been professionally flown by U.S. Customs surveillance pilots and maintained by the U.S. Customs Aviation Maintenance wing for the past 32 years and aprox 6,000 hours. Very few aircraft see the level of maintenance and upgrades such as this bird. Be sure to review all of the logs which are posted at the bottom of this ad in the 'Service Logs' section.


Annual Inspection next due: December 1, 2021
Log Status: This aircraft was seized by the US Gov't in 1986 at 926 total hours, thus the 1977 to 1986 original log was never recovered. The plane entered service with the U.S. Customs Aviation fleet on Sept 27, 1987 and remained there until July of 2019. We have all logs and extremely meticulous & voluminous U.S. Customs Aviation Maintenance Division records from then forward. We also have all FAA Records since the aircraft was new.
Minor Damage History. Nose gear collapse while the aircraft was in maintenance in October 1992, very minimal damage. Fully & professionally repaired.
24-Month IFR Certification next due: January 1, 2022.
