Other Information


I have personally flown, managed and helped to maintain this 1978 Golden Eagle lll 421C. Because my employer's needed to upgrade to a jet for their business, we cannot justify owning two airplanes so this one is ready for it's next owner. Included in the purchase price will be an initial checkout for your pilot provided by me. I will show you how to manage your engines to maximize engine life and to avoid costly repairs. N88537 has a useful load of 2,200 lbs and a range of 1,500 miles and has proven itself as a true workhorse.

I am an ATP, CFII, MEI, and A&P mechanic with over 11,000 hours of accident, incident and violation free flight hours. ​ I am helping my employer's sell their airplanes because they just purchased a Citation Jet which I am now flying. I have flown, managed and helped maintain N88537 for two years now. Out of all the Cessna 421 airplanes I have flown, I feel that N88537 is the best 421 I have ever flown. I will truly miss this airplane. ​ Because of my employer's need to go longer distances quicker, they cannot justify having more than one airplane and must sell. We have owned this airplane now for 10 years. We considered keeping it for the shorter hauls and for a backup airplane. ​ If you find yourself in need of upgrading to a cabin class airplane with a useful load of 2,200lbs and a range of around 1,500 miles then feel free to contact me for a showing and I will be very happy to show you N88537. I know this airplane inside and out. I am also a qualified Cessna 421 instructor and I would be very happy to give an initial checkout for your safety and insurance requirements with the purchase of this fine airplane. Additional pictures including several videos and complete logbooks along with a spec sheet can be found at my website.
