Description

Donny Gabriel with Mason Amelia proudly presents one of the country's most unrivaled trailing link 421C, N822BK. This is a guaranteed best-of-breed Twin Cessna that transcends all others. Yes, that’s a bold statement indeed, but allow me to elaborate: 


This airplane has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment, meticulously examining every detail for improvement opportunities. This isn’t your everyday Twin Cessna. It’s for the consummate and discerning 421C enthusiast. 8BK hasn’t just been thoughtfully upgraded; it was modernized and refined to the limit, with no feature going untouched. 


This is a truly “Garminized” panel. Every Garmin product, including remote-mounted devices, is present. It has more touchscreens than an Apple Store and is more capable than an airliner! Unique additions like a built-in CO detector, custom rocker switches, and Garmin Smart Glide add to the distinction.


For those planning to enjoy the cabin, let the brand-new, contemporary, and highly polished interior provide you with a chilled-out ambiance and vibe that makes you want to fly everywhere and never drive again. Nothing on the inside of this 421C has gone overlooked. All hard surfaces and soft furnishings have been replaced with new ones. The cost was not a consideration, only comfort and appearance. This Cessna looks like a new corporate jet inside and out. 


The exterior appearance is something of envy and will have people thinking it’s a 2024 model! The combination of Jet Glo and Acry Glo paints, topped off and protected by ceramic coating, make this 421C look like glass. For those who appreciate increased visibility, the all-LED exterior lights guarantee that you’ll be seen by astronauts on the International Space Station. 


When it comes to 421Cs, maintenance is paramount. While aesthetics matter to some, the mechanical side should matter to all. How reliable are the things we cannot see from the outside? You want to buy from owners who take a pragmatic approach and understand the importance of not cutting corners. Performance is meaningless without reliability, and reliability is ensured in two ways: An expert Twin Cessna owner/pilot with an open checkbook and an expert Twin Cessna Maintenance Facility with intimate and tribal knowledge of these machines. N822BK benefits from both and has seen the likes of many well-known service centers, most recently TAS. Don’t miss out on a great opportunity for a killer prebuy – this 421C goes to TAS in July for its annual!
