    Default Looking at a Piper Seneca II any suggestions?

    Hey guys I'm looking at a piper Seneca II. It's a 1979 completely redone in in 2004. I currently fly a cherokee six and will have to get my twin engine certification but i'm not too concerned about that. Anyone have any thoughts advice while looking at purchasing this plane?


    PS. The plane is mostly used for business and to commute to my house in South Carolina from Pittsburgh

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    barons are so cheap right now, especially a b55 with 470s. Definitely get that over a seneca, especially a II

    I'm partial to Beechcraft products. That said, if you really want to know take a couple of hours and look at the log books and see what the paper tells you.

    Ended up going with a cherokee 6...main factors where I knew both owners since new and records are pristine as well as TTAF is only 2900hrs fresh annuals and the payload isn't bad for being a single...I'm going to post pics in a separate thread

    Pretty quick decision you made on which plane to get.
