Costco Wholesale aircraft


#1

Hey gang. Does anyone know the N-numbers for the Costco planes? I’m an employee and an aviation fan!

May be good to know how far out corporate is prior to a building walk! :laughing:


#2

N86CV was their old plane, they’re still holding the registration though.

N86CW Citation V

and they own a share in Netjets Citation X, N975QS

Awesome James! Thank you!


#4

Damn…It’s a blocked a/c! Oh well!


#5

Last I knew Duncan has the CV 86CW for sale.

They also have a GV (N83CW) and and Challenger 604 (N82CW) based at BFI… both blocked now.

Wazzu90’s motto… If Costco doesn’t sell it, I don’t need it!


#6

FYI… The GV and 604 are registered to North Pacific at Corp HQ in Issaquah. They’ve used NP name forever. When they opened their first stores they had a Sabreliner and then got an early model HS700.


#7

It’s been my experience that, IF I NEED IT, then Costco doesn’t sell it. Of course, about a month after I buy it somewhere else, then I usually see great deals on it at Costco! I’m just lucky that way :confused:
I’m in the market for a chainsaw. Of course they don’t sell them there. I’ll probably buy in a month or so, so if you’re in the market for one in the near future, they should start carrying them in about eight weeks or so :wink:


#8

Yup, they’ll sell the chainsaws in a few weeks but it will be in a two- or three-pack.


#9

Actually for a specialized item like a chainsaw, it will be sold in a 1 pack. The problem is it will come in a kit with a goggles, helmet, 3 different types of gloves, 6 different type chains, a multi purpose tool (like a leatherman but not actually a leatherman) and a pair of overalls (non Oshkosh-b-gosh).


#10

… Or in a twin pack with goggles, helmet, 3 different types of gloves, 6 different type chains, a multi purpose tool (like a leatherman but not actually a leatherman) and a pair of overalls (non Oshkosh-b-gosh). :smiley:


#11

And sold only online :unamused:


#12

They just sent me a coupon for $25 off. I have no idea how much it costs cuz they never tell us! :smiling_imp:


#13

Haha small world I also work at Costco and know what you mean. I work deli and cook chickens. :laughing: and walks suck


#14

Def a small world! I’m a Tire Center Supervisor here in Oregon. I get a kick out of everyone’s comments on Costco inventory!


#15

I buy tires at both Costco and Les Schwab. Les Scwab fleet 2 x Cessna 550

When I was learning to fly the entire Nordstrom fleet would fly in for the day. Back then they had two Challengers, two Westwinds and two Citations. Same old tail numbers, newer fleet:

N227N

N228N


#18

Can I get 227N gift wrapped?


#19

For the right price, they’d probably throw in a pair of shoes. They’ve always had the second best dressed pilots… and no epaulets!

  • I think we covered the best dressed pilot in another thread. :smiley:

Caught Challenger 82CW departing YKM at 4:26pm. Sorry all I had with me was my phone/cam.
