Jul 9, 2020For sale: the key asset of the business is a fully refurbished, FAA Part 125 certified DC-4 / C-54D cargo plane. This is a four engine, low-wing monoplane with fully retractable tricycle landing gear. The airplane has four Pratt & Whitney R-2000 engines, each developing 1450 hp. Its maximum speed is 285 mph, and it normally cruises at approximately 200 mph. The aircraft has a maximum take-off weight of 73,000 lbs, allowing it to carry 20,000 lbs of cargo -- in a space about the size of an average boxcar -- for a distance of 1200 nautical miles. It can easily operate out of a 5000 ft runway and was especially designed to do this on unimproved grass or dirt fields. However, it can cut this length in half depending on the cargo weight and fuel requirements for the mission. Empty, the DC-4 will become airborne in less than 2000 ft. The DC-4 can fly for 11 hours on the main fuel tanks (2000 USG) at a true airspeed of approximately 165 knots. Utilizing the auxiliary tanks, the aircraft would have an additional 860 USG available which would add an additional four and a half hours of flight time. The aircraft takes a crew of two and is not pressurized, thus simplifying operation and maintenance.
