    Intro

    The Comanche 250 is a single engine, low wing, four-seated aircraft built by Piper Aircraft since 1958 and is an all-metal, light-weight aircraft with a tricycle retractable landing gear. The 250 is a member of the larger series of Comanche aircraft and features a 250 hp (186 kW) Lycoming O-540 engine.

    Over the years the aircraft had several upgrades such as the manually operated flaps in the early models were upgraded to be electrically actuated flaps in the later models and which became standard in 1962. Also the majority of 250's were fitted with a carbureted engine but a few were also manufactured with fuel-injected versions of the same engine.
