Aero Design & Engineering 1000


First built in 1980, the Commander 1000 was certificated in 1981. Design changes within the 1000 enabled greater interior space without changing the exterior fuselage dimensions. Cabin length was increased 2.9 feet and the cabin floor lowered nearly four inches to give a cabin height of 4.8 feet. A heavier structure was required all round to take the higher differential and the bottom exterior fuselage skins, replacing the floor of the former pressure vessel, were strengthened. Two aspects highlighted by the changes are the requirement to keep the rails extending the passenger steps clean and the now curved rear pressure bulkhead. The cleanliness of the rails prevents any damage to the seals and resultant loss of cabin pressure. In the 1000 the rear pressure bulkhead is curved, with the rearmost point being almost 3 feet further aft; the additional area accommodating the flushing toilet, small (100 lb maximum) baggage area and refreshment centre.
