Twin Commander Reaffirms Commitment to Fleet Safety with 2 Free SB241 Kits
FAA Airworthiness Directive 2013-09-05 is a mandatory maintenance item for owners of Twin Commander 690/A/B models to repair cracks in the aft pressure bulkhead. Owners who have not yet complied with Service Bulletin 241, the AD’s compliance method, can now receive a free kit donated from Twin Commander Aircraft. The kit has a value of $16,325 and includes the major structural components necessary to complete the service bulletin, which addresses potential cracking in the aft pressure bulkhead.
To be eligible for a donated kit an owner must order the kit and have it installed at one of 14 Factory Authorized Twin Commander Service Center facilities, a worldwide network dedicated to Twin Commander service, sales, and support. There will only be two kits made available for this offer. Here’s a list of Factory Authorized Twin Commander Service Centers .

A Twin Commander in the Texas Hills
The Flying L Ranch was once a thriving fly-in community in the Texas Hills north of San Antonio. Unfortunately for pilots, the Flying L is now a resort and dude ranch sans landing strip, although the original clubhouse in the photo still stands. Do you know more about this airplane, or what brought the airplane to the Ranch?
