Riley Rocket

Jack Riley kept semi-retiring between his aviation ventures, wanting to have only a small business, but was soon back in full force with the Riley Rocket. The Cessna 310 was fitted with under wing exhaust along with airfoil nacelles to house the 290-hp Lycoming engines. Three-blade props (among the first on light twins) were used, and extra fuel tanks extended the range. A one-piece windshield and extended cabin area were also part of the conversion.
