Not sure GAM does outside endorsements, when I wanted to do a piston commander endorsement I had to go to Hobart.

Problem is do you have access to an aircraft? If not I suspect that will be the stumbling block. I do know there is a chap in Essendon not attached to GAM who can do it but aircraft becomes the issue.

Go to the twincommandergroup.com forum and ask the question there. The people on that forum will give the right answer.

Yes, GAM can do the 690 endo, its not a cheap one though.

Best off talking to the guys down there in Ops. They do have 2 690's, one is based from Adelaide that does the Alice run everyday, however the second is normally in Essendon on standby for any runs that need immediate action (i they have a pilot available).

Not sure about the 690 but hit up John Chew, he may be of some assistance

Aero Commander

Contact Nigil Wittenall of Wittenall Aviation at Denniliquin. He has an Aero Commander and an AOC for training plus he is an ATO.

Problem solved.

I think you will find Nigel's aircraft is a piston shrike 500S

not a turbine

Yes, you're correct. Apologies, my oversight.
There aren't too many turbine Commanders in Australia.

AG Airwork down in Stawell has a 690B and 695A. They might be worth a go.
