Commander Aircraft has introduced a factory-direct trade-up programme. The company hopes this will boost sales of new and used Commander 114B/TC piston singles by making it easier for owners of Beech, Cessna, Mooney and Piper piston singles to trade-in their aircraft. "We offer prospective customers a fair market value for their aircraft and will also provide finance, training and maintenance," says the Bethany, Oklahoma-based company. Commander plans to sell more than 20 aircraft by the end of the year "-and will increase production by 50% in 1999".
