In Flight Report: A really nice cross-country Comanche with responsive throttle and power. The 260HP IO-540 makes for a very nice powerplant. With a mid-time engine, a working autopilot, and retractable gear, this aircraft has speed and at a very modest 13GPH. It is also a very good choice of an aircraft for IFR operations. “Pilot, -Josh”
