Additional Features

The C model, which came along in 1964 and would be produced in the greatest numbers, added fiberglass landing gear doors and borrowed the Twin Comanche's streamlined "Tiger Shark" engine nacelles. Fuel injection and dual alternators came standard on the C (they had been optional on the B). A normally aspirated C had a top speed of 218 mph (189 knots) and cruised at 208 mph (181 kt). At the long-range power setting, endurance was nearly 8 hours and range was 1,300 statute miles (1,130 nm) with no reserves. In reality, at a "normal" cruise power setting (about 80-percent power), fuel would last about 4 hours and 830 miles with no reserves.
