Sept-Oct 2005 On The Radar
The Commander Flies Again
A group of more than 50 Commander aircraft owners have recently made a bold and unprecedented move: They bought all of the failed aircraft manufacturer’s assets in the hopes of continuing airframe production plus support for parts and service. They’re calling the newly formed company Commander Premier Aircraft Corporation (CPAC).
“This is the first time that I’ve seen a group of product owners actually commit to buy the assets of a defunct company and reestablish operations to produce the product they love,” says Bob Tippens, a director at CPAC. The company expects to be in operation by early 2006. Call CPAC at (860) 678-7800 or log on to www.commanderair.com for more information about this new company.
