It’s over for Commander Premiere Aircraft

October 14, 2011 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

Commander Premiere Aircraft was evicted from its facility Wednesday morning at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport in Missouri, according to the latest story in the Southeast Missourian. ¬†Assets are still inside the building, which has all new locks installed by the city. A bankruptcy court will sell the assets. City officials claimed the struggling company owed more than $800,000 in back rent. The company could have stalled the eviction by paying a $140,000 bond fee early this week but didn’t. This is the worst possible outcome, because tooling needed to restart the line could scatter in all directions. It was going to be a dream plane with a bigger engine, the one thing the Commander needed.
