    A bit about N365B: She is a beautiful bird that flies 160 knot LOP at 11.5gph. Engine runs strong and smooth with a balanced prop. I never let the temps exceed 380deg in climb and then run around 280-320 in cruise. After buying this plane at 22 and flying it over 13 years I just don't have the time to keep it in the air as much as it needs to be. I recently got engages and between wedding planning, buying a home, and looking to start a family unfortunately flying just can't take the priority it used to for me. I love this plane and it has taken me on many adventures all around this beautiful country. I really want it to find a good home with someone who will love it and take care of it like I did.

    This plane was featured in the movie Book Club in 2017 including scenes of flight and dialogue between Diane Keaton and Andy Garcia.

    Interior and Paint both okay... paint could use some touch up and one rudervator needs repainting (sun side). Interior is older style but it good condition. It was an airtex interior made to keep the beauty of the 1950's ear. With the small N-Numbers and period specific paint this really is a bird that looks old but flys new. Great IFR traveler.
