Aircraft For Sale


1974 Piper Aztec Turbo E – For Sale

Sadly, I’m just not flying this aircraft as often as I used to.  The kids are grown up and I’m not traveling for biz with employees anymore.  I’m mostly flying my Cherokee solo.  So, time to find N500EG a new home.  I purchased her in 2009.  I earned my Commercial MEL and CFI MEI in her.  She is currently kept under the shades at KSTS.  Since I’m an active CFI, CFII, SEL, as well as MEI, you could buy her and I could train you for your MultiEngine rating if you stay here a while.

Trade-A-Plane has an aircraft value estimator.  When I punch in the numbers and avionics description, it says that the aircraft is ~$80K value… so… make an offer?

The photo is years old… showing what she had when I bought her.  Since then I added a co-pilot airspeed indicator and an LCD attitude indicator, moving the existing pilot AI over to the co-pilot side.  I changed the compass to an upright card type.  Otherwise, this is a pretty accurate view of the panel today.  She has an above average avionics panel which makes flying IFR so much fun:

Garmin 530W w/ terrain & sat wx receiver

Garmin Audio Panel /  Intercom / marker beacon receiver

Sandel 3308 HSI coupled to GPS & Nav (including ADF)

RCA Electronic Attitude Indicator

Bendex King Nav/Com, XPDR (digital), and DME (the face plate is in poor condition)

L3 StormWatch / Traffic (CRT indicator) w/ audio traffic warnings – and digital checklist

Engine Analyzer (both engines, all cylinders CHT & EGT, one of the turbo TIT is INOP)

Shadin digital fuel flow & totalizer (coupled to GPS)

Compass is upright card type (looks like DG – easier to fly by)

Astrotech digital clock

Digital OAT / Voltmeter

Co-Pilot has five instruments.  (no Turn Coordinator – the engine analyzer is in that position)

It has a 406Mhz ELT (needs to have its registration updated)

Radar INOP (sat wx & StormWatch are almost as good… plus… here in California, we only have five days a year when TS occur, I’m staying on the ground thank you very much!)

The post lights combined with built in lighting in some of the instruments makes this a great bird to fly at night.


The seats are dove grey leather and wool in very good shape.  The carpet is matching wool in fair condition.  The panel is matching grey in color.  The headliner is is good condition.  Pilot side shoulder harness could stand to be replaced as it is twisted such that it has trouble retracting.

The top engine cowlings have quick releases instead of screws… makes it far easier to remove for inspections or cleaning the sparkplugs.  Oh… and I have a gas tug and Bruce custom cover that goes with the aircraft at sale.
