Summary

This Baron is being Sold “As Is, Where Is”.  Because of the amount of work needed to make it airworthy, we are strongly giving preference to a buyer who would trailer it away.

This Baron has 6,926 TT, engines have 1,048 SMOH and props are 906 since new.  It was last annualed in 8/2014 and ferried to KSUS from Napa, CA in Sept 2017 (with the gear extended). 

The ferry flight from CA in 2017 had these documented discrepancies:

  • Gear Up/Down Lts InO. Gear retract test failed. Flew with gear down.
  • Ldg Gear breaker broken, its wire moved to Cabin Lights breaker. Cabin Lts breaker wires taken off and taped.
  • Transponder was intermittent.
  • Glove/Map box missing
  • Left Tachometer appears to have failed.
  • Whiskey compass is dry.
  • Cabin heater fuel line disconnected by previous owner.
  • ADF and RNAV units InOp
  • EGT gauge unusable
  • O/H cabin light lens melted
  • O/H air duct scoop will not remain closed and seal is nonexistent
  • M800 Davtron chronometer InOp
  • Aux fuel gauges very inaccurate

A pre-buy inspection provided these additional findings:

  • Compressions
    • Left Engine: 1/70, 2/60, 3/54, 4/66, 5/62, 6/56
    • Right Engine: 1/60, 2/68, 3/58, 4/50, 5/40 Exhaust leak, 6/70
  • The #5 cylinder on the right engine was the only bad egg with a substantial exhaust leak. It will not pass an annual inspection and will need to be repaired. Minimum pressure is 45 psi.
  • Some minor corrosion in wings that could stand to be treated with Corrosion X.
