I’m thinking of buying into a partnership on a ’79 421C. Any advice?
Also, I’m wondering if anyone has any input on the facilities that have recently performed work on the airplane in question. It is currently getting firewall forward overhauls done at 1 Stop Aviation at Brown field in San Diego, and for the past few years has undergone annuals at Havasu Air Center.
Not sure if you have already purchased, but I have been involved in helping to set up a couple of C421 partnerships. The main thing is to work out as many of the financial details as possible. Work out things like how to handle operating costs, maintenance decisions, upgrades, and aircraft insurance. Put it in writing not so much for enforcement but more for understanding between partners. TTCF is an excellent resource for getting info on these great planes.
