  1. What about wing issues…like wings separating in flight? This was a problem with this model…kind of a scary design issue, don’t you think???

  2. Hi everyone who is interested in this type of airplane I owned a 1975 Super Star 700 and put 1200 hours on it. When I was in training for my Insurance my young instructor at around 12,000 feet pulled the stick to his chest and stalled the wings props to show me how tough the wings were! Well after wiping up underwear after the flight was over I was totally impressed with my plane. After being in several thunder storms and flying it through a hurricane full of trouble I can’t see how you could break the wings unless you fly it between 2 trees! What piston twin has a tougher wing and the speed of a entry jet for the money?

  3. I owned an Aerostar for 16 years, and I never heard of a wing separating except in the case of an engine exhaust system failure where the ensuing fire took out the wing structure. Several mods and ADs have dealt with this by providing tougher exhaust components, routine exhaust inspections, and fire detection systems.

    The wing itself is exceptionally strong and rugged, as is the entire airframe. This is an airframe that was designed to eventually become a jet, and it is extremely solid and rugged. Flying an Aerostar is unlike any other piston aircraft. You have to fly it to understand how solid and rugged it is.

  4. 1. The Piper Twin Engine Plane is the Arrow star -702 model Cr used at 225 Knots An To Speed Of 261 Knots at maxim Speed too! Fastest Twin Engine Air Plane is Record Speed of Piston Twin Engine Aircraft too!
