679er Not For Sale

Whew, I just received an email about 679er and she is no longer for sale. Gary responded to my email today and confirmed that he decided not to sell her at this time. The person that made the offer would not continue the flying club and at a minimum the owner wanted to keep access to the plane, so did Mary and I! An interesting twist was added asking if we might be interested in owning 679er and want to keep the club going. Hmmmm, I am sure this will lead to further discussions. For now, I think I will go celebrate the good news, our flying family stays intact!

Good news!

For future reference, or if you have a friend looking, I know 2 fella's with a super clean, beautiful Piper 235 looking for a 3rd man...

Glad you held on to your bird, Gary!

Thanks guys!!

Yes, Gary(the owner) sure had us worried. We actually made financial arangements for a purchase if need be. I was really thinking of the 75 Piper 140/160hp on trade a plane. We're safe for now but who knows in the future.
