1979 Piper Aerostar 601P / Superstar I - 700

N888WB was born N8210J, a 1979 model year Piper Aerostar 601P on February 28, 1979 after 13.15 hours of test flight.  This was the 610th Aerostar airframe built and the 274th pressurized Aerostar manufactured.

Aerostar airframe #610 spent its early life in the Seattle area, owned by Whalen J. Burke, who placed upon it a personal registration mark with his initials.  In approximately its first 18 months this plane flew 409 hours!  After the passing of Mr. Burke in 1989, N888WB was purchased from the estate by Machen, Inc.  Machen did the Superstar modification on this Aerostar in 1989  and sold it to the 2nd owner, Don L. Aircraft Inc. in Florida.  After a few short term Florida owners, this Aerostar was sold to the current owner, Whitewater Creek Inc. in Coeur D'Alene Idaho.

This Aerostar has been nicely modified and updated over the years to provide for comfortable IFR travel  and  reliable transportation.  Among the many Aerostar mods on this plane are: Superstar I 700 modification; low speed flight control enhancement package; high-temperature throttle, prop and mixture cables; Star-stopper brake upgrade (just shy of the 700-6 performance); Electric Known-Ice windshield hot-plate; Inboard de-ice boots and manual alternate air controls; and many others.  With the Garmin GNS530 WAAS and the DAC roll steering (GPS steering), this plane makes for a fast  and effortless piece of IFR transportation.

This plane is also one of a short list of pressurized Aerostars that has had all of the windows replaced recently - a massive expense.

The current owner purchased this plane in 1995 and has used it for business and personal travel.  This Superstar is being sold due to the owner having a long term lease on a jet.

This Aerostar is based in the Coeur D'Alene Idaho and can be seen by appointment.  Insurance endorsed transition training and delivery are available. Please don't hesistate to inquire with regard to tailoring  this Aerostar to your needs (modifications, cosmetics, or avionics),  or to discuss financing options.

Paint and Interior:
Paint was done in 2004 in the modernized Aerostar sweep scheme, white over navy blue with red and steel blue metallic.  Paint was done by Suncoast and will easily touch up to a conservative 8.5 on a scale of 10.  This painto is still very sharp and with the recent new glass this plane has an appearance  more near a 10 year old plane than its actual age.

Interior is original brown leather in a condition that shows that this Aerostar has not been abused.  Some carpet has been replaced.  There are areas of wear on the typical spots of the pilot's seat and entry area.  Rear areas are in very nice shape for a nearly 40 year old interior.
