N33672 ("Higgins", "Skittles") - $130/hour*
No matter whether you refer to '672 as "Higgins" or "Skittles", most folks on Boeing Field will know to which plane you are referring. This plane was originally brought to Boeing Field from Watsonville, Califoria, where it was owned by a former NASA engineer and used to commute between Watsonville and Moffett Field.
Higgins is utilized primarily for basic pilot training by students pursuing their Private Pilot License. He sports the standard six-pack of "steam gauges", JPL fuel computer, a digital VAL Avionics VOR/localizer/glide slope/marker receiver, and a panel-mounted Garmin Aera 500 GPS. He is also outfitted with several performance modifications including improved wheel pants, wing root and flap gap seals, and vortex generators mounted on the wings' leading edges near the wing roots which improves handling during slow flight.
