Can you add factory AC to a 1979 Piper Archer II which was optional

Just bought a 1979 Piper Archer II. The POH states that some of these planes came with the optional Air Conditioning. Can this be installed on my airplane and do you know of any companies that can do this ? Can that AC system be bought somewhere ? Thanks. Paul

  • Hi Paul,

    The only way you're going to get an AC for your plane is by buying one out of another plane being parted out. Like Wentworth or other company. Since it was on the type certificate you can reinstall it one part at a time. You'll need an IA to sign off and a new weight and balance.
