Piper Navajo VH-SGA
The Piper Navajo was purchased new in 1973 for $147,000 as the Queensland Premier had been using his own private aircraft. A solution for this was passed by the Qld Cabinet in 1971 which led to VH-SGA being purchased in the USA.
From 1982 the Navajo was used as a private transport aircraft and later as an aerial survey aircraft fitted with aerial cameras, throughout Australia including Tasmania. The aircraft is a pressurized version of the PA-31 Navajo, powered by two 425-hp (317-kW) Lycoming TIGO-541-E1A piston engines
The Piper Navajo was retired from service due to high hours and presented to AAHC Qld. Piper Navajo VH-SGA will be restored by AAHC Qld to represent its time with the Queensland Government from 1973 to 1982 and is on static display at Caboolture Qld.
