Whether you own the twin or single engine model, as a Comanche owner you only accept the best in performance. The Comanche is one of the cleanest and most responsive of any factory produced aircraft. The Met-Co-Aire wing tip enhances ALL areas of performance, especially reducing stall speed and increasing stability of the aircraft upon landing.
Their design reduces drag while smoothing the airflow along the wing and control surfaces.
