Rick's article in AOPA
      #324005 - 08/28/11 09:56 PM

Did everyone get to see Rick Durden's article in AOPA on Stan Musick's Aerostar 601P called: Family Rocket?

Great read. Nice bird. Good folks all around.

Best,

Dave

I've got to get more current on my aviation reading!

AOPA, Flying, IFR, Aviation Safety all show up dutifully every month. I'm probably six months behind on all of them.

I don't recall every seeing one up close. An Aerostar, that is. So, how does the wing spar of the mid-wing affect the cabin?

Thanks.

LOVE that airplane.

I thought is pretty neat the the eyebrow windows are set to be perfect for steep (45 - 60 degree) banked turns, like he expected it to be flwon to those angles a LOT.

I think it is a ring structure, but I can't find a picture....

Never thought of that Terry! Thanks for pointing it out.

I don't have any time in one, just rode. Fella here on the field had one and was having a heck of a problem with getting the gear up on takeoff. A fella with more experience had to point out he was accelerating so fast, he was waiting too long to raise the gear and exceeding gear up speed, or at least that's what the second experienced fella said.

The 166 gallons of fuel always bothered me because I make a lot of long trips and have a bit more range in the Baron.

Best,

Dave
