In February 1999, Six people joined together to purchase a Cherokee Six. But, before they located an appropriate Six to buy, the club had grown beyond 6 members, So two aircraft were purchased. The Cherokee Six (N33354) and a Mooney M20E (N211SC). With these planes, Six4aSix became a true flying club.
Six4asix became a 3 plane club with a purchase of a Mooney M20k. However, due to high maintenance costs and the complexity of running 3 plane club, a decision was made to sell the M20K and to go back to being a 2 plane club. Shortly thereafter, conditions in the insurance market made getting insurance on the Mooney impractical. It was sold and the club was fortunate to locate N8084B, a Cessna Cardinal RG. Although not as fast as a Mooney, the Cardinal is just as economical, still pretty fast, and it has a HUGE cabin (when compared to a Mooney).
In 2019 the club upgraded the Cherokee to a Cessna T210 M model, which had the turbo removed and the engine upgraded from an tio520 to an io550. More horsepower, more power, runs well at lower altitudes and more speed.
With these two beautiful, well maintained, planes; Six4asix is one of the few flying clubs in the state with both a six seat retractable and a 4 seat retractable. This combination of planes gives our members a good, solid, reliable plane for virtually any mission.
As they say: “Go fast, pull back, go up!”
