I was wanting to know if a PA31-350 with 22000 hours has any life left in it?
1975 model . Was used as charter .
Is there any air frame limits piper has on its aircraft?
I don't want the wings to fall off.

I can get a 9000 hour Chieftain but is 200 hours from needing motor overhauls for $60000 more then this one.
This one only needs 1 motor now and other has 1000 hours left on a 08 rebuild. I can get it for a good price . Over haul the one engine and still be under $30000. of the one needing 2 engines done in 200 hours. Both planes need annuals inspections.

I need a low cost aircraft to use for a few years but it must be 100% safe.

ideas comments?
