Overview Summary

Originally manufactured in 1968 at Van Nuys in California by Ted Smith, the Aerostar’s light construction, powerful engines and low levels of drag gave the aircraft impressive performance and became a popular choice of light turboprop.

In 1972 a pressurized cabin was introduced, with the aircraft re-designated the Aerostar 601P. Engines featuring higher-rate turbochargers were used to provide the cabin with a pressurisation system, allowing passengers to cruise at high altitudes in comfort.
