The Aztec evolved in the late 1950's as Piper wanted more out is twin-engine Apache.  Following the addition of several upgrades, it officially went on the market in 1959 effectively ending the Apache's run.

The earlier Aztecs featured the twin 250s, seating for six, and several other advances. This model was tweaked through the years and saw a rather long run until production ceased in 1982.  This Aztex includes wing and empennage de-icing boots and a windshield hot plate that work very well and improve the margin of safety in icing conditions.

Beyond its upgraded design, the Piper Aztec has several claims to fame that make it a popular model. It is noted for its endurance, stability, and load-carrying ability.  While certainly not allowed per the POH, many owners say it will fly with anything you can put in the cabin with the doors closed.

This airplane is ready for your next cross-country trip.  So load up the family, the pets, luggage, your kids toys, and your golf clubs for your next vacation trip - this airplane is priced right and ready to go!
