For more than 20
years, one aircraft has continually set the
benchmark for design, quality, safety, and value.
That aircraft is the Commander.
Commander aircraft were originally designed and
manufactured by Rockwell International, a leading
aerospace and defense company. The Rockwell military
engineering mind set that produced the P51 Mustang,
the F86 Sabrejet, the F100 Super Sabre, and the B1
Bomber clearly shows in the design of the Commander.
The original models, the Commander 112 series, were
subsequently updated by Rockwell with the
introduction of the Commander 114 and 114A.
The Commander 114B was developed and produced by
Commander Aircraft Corporation and features a series
of aerodynamic, systems, avionics, and cabin
improvements. The 114B received a new Type
Certificate from the FAA in 1992, and the
turbocharged 114TC received a new Type Certificate
from the FAA in 1995. To obtain the new type
certificates, the Commander 114B and the Commander
114TC had to comply with the newer FAA safety
requirements under FAR Part 23 (through amendment
7). The Commander 115 series is the latest of a
thoroughbred line of aircraft that offer the
ultimate combination of performance, comfort,
safety, and utility, and it has become recognized as
the Mercedes of the single engine fleet.
The Commander 115 represents the culmination of a
multitude of improvements to the Commander line and
features numerous airframe, engine and systems
refinements, as well as significantly increased
range capability and upgraded avionics packages. In
addition to a full line of conventional avionics,
offering significant purchaser ability to customize
avionics selections, CPAC will offer the Commander
with the advanced, Chelton Electronic Flight
In 2005, all the assets of Commander Aircraft
Company were purchased by Commander Premier Aircraft
Corporation, a company formed by over 50 owners of
Commander aircraft. The Company was formed to
produce new Commander aircraft and to service the
worldwide fleet of Commander aircraft. The Commander
115 series of high-performance single engine
aircraft will now be manufactured in our modern,
aircraft manufacturing facility at Cape Girardeau
Regional Airport in Cape Girardeau Missouri.
Production is scheduled to begin in 2011.
The new, CPAC Commanders will feature a level of
refinement and attention to detail consistent with
CPAC’s relentless pursuit of safety and quality.
CPAC is committed to the Commander maintaining its
place as the world’s finest single engine, four
place, business and personal aircraft. Production
Reservations will be accepted in the near future.
