Footnotes

  • Previously known as the Apache, the Aztec PA-23 was a twin-engined, four-seater, all-metal monoplane design inherited by Piper Aircraft when it bought the Stinson company from Consolidated Vultee in the late 1940s. The prototype featured twin tail planes and was powered by 125hp Lycoming O-290-D piston engines. First flown in March 1952, the aircraft performed poorly and was redesigned with a single vertical tail and more powerful 150hp Lycoming O-320-A engines. The redesigned aircraft entered production as the Apache in 1954. Subsequent versions featured progressively more powerful engines and then in 1958 an upgraded version powered by 250hp Lycoming O-540 engines and featured a swept vertical tail became available: the five-seater Aztec PA-23-250. The latter was produced in several variants and enjoyed a very long production run, with 4,811 of all types built.
    We are advised that this example of one of Piper's most successful designs last flew on 26th January 2009 and is not currently airworthy, all its maintenance being out of date.
