Originally designed by Ted R. Smith, the Aerostar 600 is known for its speed, agility, and robust engineering, and quickly became a favorite among pilots who demanded both reliability and high performance.

The Aerostar 600 features a streamlined fuselage, creating exceptional aerodynamics to complement dual Lycoming IO-540 engines, each producing nearly 300 horsepower to achieve impressive speeds and climb rates.

Inside, the Aerostar 600 offers a comfortable, non-pressurized cabin, and an economical entryway into private aviation, ideal for charter flights around 2 hours.

Around 1,010 models were built during its production run spanning nearly two decades, with several variants including a turbocharged model, the Aerostar 601; higher-rate turbochargers to feed a cabin pressurization system in the Aerostar 601P; and eventually upgraded with a stretched fuselage and upgraded Lycoming engines in the 700 Superstar.
