The Twin Cessna Flyer Advisory Board
TTCF board members can advise based on considerable 'real-life' exposure to our membership base.
Taking the helm in 2010, Bob is President of The
Twin Cessna Flyer and editor of the monthly magazine. He has owned and operated
Twin Cessna's for over 15 years: first a T310R, then a 1980 421C (which he utilized
in a Part 135 charter operation) and now a 1983 Cessna T303 Crusader which he
uses on TTCF and personal business. Bob has an ATP and approximately 7,500 hours
flight time. He is based in Charlotte, NC. Contact Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-877-977-3246.

to safely and economically maintain and preserve their aircraft.

He is an A&P, AI, and the lead instructor of the renowned Twin Cessna Flyer Systems and Engine Seminars. Tony is available to answer the technical questions of our members by emailing email@example.com

Since 1988 The Twin Cessna Flyer (TTCF) has been the official type club supporting the piston-powered twin engine 300/400 series Cessna aircraft. We represent all models (except the Skymaster) ranging from the earliest 310 to the last 421 Golden Eagle made and all models in between. Our organization is dedicated to the preservation and safe operation of the fleet. We work closely with other type clubs through the EAA Type Club Coalition.
One of our most important functions is our behind-the-scenes work with the FAA, Textron/Cessna Aircraft, the NTSB, and other stakeholder organizations to protect the interests of Twin Cessna owners. We are the recognized experts in these aircraft and are consulted regularly by these groups.
We have over 1,600 members in 20 countries around the world and have been growing steadily since 2010. About half our members own Cessna 310s and other non-pressurized aircraft and the other half own cabin class Twin Cessnas.
One of the most important benefits we provide to our members is technical support. Our Director of Technical Support is Tony Saxton, founder and owner of TAS Aviation in Defiance, OH. His shop has been maintaining Twin Cessnas almost exclusively since 1976 and today works on about 150 aircraft a year.
Other member benefits include:
- a monthly color magazine focused exclusively on Twin Cessnas
- an annual Fly-In Convention at resort locations
- technical seminars on Twin Cessna Systems and Engines
- an active online Member Forum
- Oshkosh events including a Forum and group dinner
- periodic group flying adventures
- informational webinars
