I am dealing with the Philippine Air Force which operates the N-22 Nomad aircraft. I am being asked to supply them needed parts for this aircraft. Where could I buy these parts? Thank you.

I saw a few down near Tucson being scrapped near the Davis Monthan Boneyard about 6 years ago, had to shed a tear seeing our beloved Aussie Nomad in bits so far from home, at least it was sharing space with a Viscount nose and cockpit

A number of these were broken up at the Henderson Executive Airport, near Las Vegas, Nevada, some years back.

The test pilot's name was Glen Donovan - a great bloke - I think the elevator detached and he went in inverted. Bloody tragedy, one of the nicest blokes you would ever meet and a good operator.

In the early 70s I was a photographer in the RAAF and had to fly to adelaide to photograph a camera installation in an army queenair.I flew in a RAAF Nomad and the pilot let me take the controls I actually flew all the way there and back except for the T/O and landing.
I had never flown before but knew the basics.
I was with the research and development unit in the RAAF at Laverton.
We did a lot of work with the Nomad trials and I think that a senior test pilot sadly was killed when the one crashed.
I enjoyed the flight to and from Adelaide it enabled the pilot sitting beside me to write his report It was tiring as there was no auto pilot but a memorable event

I am surprised that no one has mentioned that the Nomad was used by the Australian Army for a while but in late 70's suffered a fatal crash, on landing approach I think. The investigation found that the tail plane/elevators were fluttering (then separated I think).
The investigation report stated the designers had analysed the structure for flutter but had used a mathematical approximation (Runge Cutter method) and a full mathematical analysis.
I don't know what mods were carried out to correct the fault. Shortly afterwards, the Army Nomads were given to Indonesia I think.

I had the very great pleasure of being the pilot on the very first commercial aircraft to actually carry PAYING PASSENGERS in the Nomad. We started a Company in Wewak PNG flying into the interior of PNG and across the boarder into Irian Jaya.
Lots of fun and games....could land anywhere with a full load...and takeoff with half a load !! We did earthquake relief in Irian Jaya for the UN and MAF for 6 months in 1976. MAF liked the aircraft so much they bought one !!

The "experts" in Canberra put the thumbs down for the RAAF because of a simple thing which was easily fixed. I forget what it was as it was a long time ago. Does anyone know what??

hello i need information over this airplane the price and status.

From different site's comments, I gather that the Twotter was great. Now how the blazes can it be that the Twotter is highly regarded, the Nomad got into tighter situations with destinction, loved by those that has lots of experience piloting it and refered to as junk from other?
Nomad would be very nice with a fixed wheel config for roughrer strips seeing Africa is opening up for feeders.
GA8 is very well regarded in SA with lots of idoling.
Indications are GA10 will be suitably priced and is awaited with great market anticipation.
Keep well All.
As noted the Australian goverment announced in 2001 that they were giving up support of the Nomad, but fortunately GippAir took over design authority and are about to launch the GA18 Airvan. This is a very much revised Nomad with new engines and a glass cockpit.

I AM LOOKING FOR C250B17 ENGINE/GEARBOX USED ON THE NOMAD, WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL IF ANY ONE KNOWS WHERE I CAN GET ONE, TIME EXPIRED OK BUT MUST BE WORKING CONDITION.

I fly with Air Safaris in NZ on the N24 Nomad, they are a fantastic aircraft and do the job extremely well! Quite exciting having confirmation of the new GA18 Airvan. It will be an exciting future. Would have loved it if they kept the name Nomad tho.

Very Interesting. Was a DCA Aviation Firefighter various places around AUSTRALIA. Saw a number of them flying in various places. One type that is not mentioned is the Search Master derivative. I know of one company that flew one out of Archerfield in the early 80's. Will agree with the comment above about the line drawing being probably of the N24.

The Nomad is FAA cert. they have been flown buy US customs and other people there. there are still some flying in Asia and New zealand. They are about to be put back into production in Australia they are going to make a N24 model again it will be called the GA18.

I've seen the versatility of N22C and a friend has one in Paraguay and is very happy with the performance of the plane, I wonder if this is certified FAA, I am interested to buy two for Ecuador SA, knows who has aircraft for sale.

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority contracted a NOMAD for reef surveillance. I flew a number of times (1982-4) in the plane and was on board when we intercepted a Taiwanese vessel inside the reef. After hours of covert surveillance, we guided the Navy into the reef to make the arrest. A great aircraft!

I owned & operated Nomad N60PA - s/n N24a-96 back in the 1980's. I have several small airframe spare parts left. Most are new, but because of no existing purchase history, they are NOT certified for US use. Will sell cheap providing purchaser signs a Notarized hold harmless.

I was part of the experimental team that buit the first 2 Nomads.I also modified PNGDF Nomads with Omega Navigation , multi mode Radar and long range tanks Whilst I was T Civil in Moorabin. If anyone has any questions about the construction etc, I am sure I could assist you.

Odd there's no mention about the Nomad floatplane. I flew in one about 1985
from Rose Bay Sydney to the Berowa Waters Restuarant one Saturday for a lunch
about a twenty minute flight north and a very hairt take off climbing steeply
up and over a hill top out of the narrow valley that contained the inlet that we
had landed in. A fantastic experience and a great lunch. Regards, great site!
