Airframe Description

N513JN, a 1977 Cessna 421C RAM, is a unique aircraft with all of its avionics modernized with a fully glass cockpit. Nothing was spared in terms of maintenance and upgrades. The extended range fuel (262 gallons) provides unbelievable range while riding in comfort with a real potty (flushable) on board, the STEC 3100 autopilot, the EVS-600 Enhanced Vision System and known-ice certification. The addition of strakes and winglets makes this one of the fastest Golden Eagles that can be found, and more importantly, one of the safest. The electric air conditioner (the only useful A/C for a 421) can cool the aircraft on the ground. The left engine has only 93 hours since RAM overhaul while the right engine has 493 hours since RAM IRAN (1482 SMOH).

Initial 421C training in the form of 10 hours free dual, extensive free ground school and management tips by the MEI seller are included. The very equipped cockpit, good paint, excellent interior and extended fuel system combine to make this one of the most attractive Golden Eagles on the market today.

• Strakes: This expensive addition adds substantial speed but more importantly, it lowers stall speed and increases single-engine performance.

• Winglets: This expensive addition also adds substantial speed but more importantly, it also lowers stall speed and increases single-engine performance. Also, winglets are no longer available for purchase.

• Glass/Electrically Heated Pilot Windshield

• Dual 100 amp alternators

• Flight Custom III Tires, Cleveland Brakes & Wheels

• Dual Auxiliary Nacelle Fuel Tanks: The additional two fuel tanks (28 gallons/each) provide N513JN with an unprecedented amount of fuel for a 421 (262 gallons) allowing for very extended range. 

• Polished Spinners

• Cabin Prop Syncrophasers

• Rosen Sun Visors

• Engine Fire Detectors/Extinguishers

• Optional, Variable, Cabin Pressure System

• Optional, larger Supplemental/Emergency Oxygen System (11CF)
