Rockwell 114 Gran Turismo Commander
Theoretically this aircraft should
be listed under Commander, since the Commander Aircraft
Division was created by Rockwell specifically to produce this and the
earlier model 112.
was built in 2001 (the example above, seen at Buchanan Field, Concord
CA in May
of 2010 by Bill
Larkins was a 1995 model), after Commander had been acquired by Aviation
General Inc who filed for bankruptcy in 2002.. Various other
attempts to reinstate production,
notably by Tiger Aircraft, came to
naught. The 114 differed from the 112 in having a 260 hp
Lycoming IO-540-T4B5D engine up
front, driving a two-bladed prop. TGOW was 3,140 lbs.
Some 405 were built along with
over 200 later 114A/B/TC and 115 models.
