N6632P at Danielson, Ct. (5B3)

N6632P is a 1959 Piper Comanche (PA-24-250), purchased in 2002 by Peter Morse. The aircraft,  with its 250 hp motor, variable pitch propeller and retractable landing gear, cruises at 147 knots (169 mph). It can carry four adults (800 lbs) with full fuel (60 gal/ 360 lbs) for just over four hours or 600 nautical miles, cruising  at an altitude of 6,000 to 12,000 feet. An avionics upgrade was completed, and N6632P is fully certified for IFR flight in the clouds.
Peter Morse of Putnam, Connecticut, received his Private Pilot license in 1994 after nearly a year of training at the Danielson airport. He went on to earn an IFR rating and sign-offs in high performance and complex (retractable) aircraft. Peter flies often throughout the Northeast to visit family and friends or for pleasure. He has made trips as far as Cape Cod, the Maine coast, northern Vermont, central New York, Virginia and Florida. His favorite trip is to fly down the Hudson River VFR Corridor through New York City, dropping to 1000 feet at the George Washington Bridge and proceeding past the Statue of Liberty while looking up at the New York skyline. This corridor has been re-opened after being closed following the Sept. 11 attacks.
Peter became an Angel Flight pilot, flying four missions in 2006 carrying patients between Martha's Vinyard and Hyannis. Ten missions in 2007, from the Boston area  to central New York, totaled over 4200 nm. The Comanche has proved  to be a reliable and comfortable aircraft for these missions.
