I've been working lately. Did the second class medical which is required to flight instruct. Next week I plan on flying some. I'll get a flight review and It will be good to get some flying time in this area. I'm reviewing the POH and an auxiliary manual specifically about the Piper Warrior(s)/Archer. Have previously logged a bit of time in a Cherokee 6, an Archer and a Warrior (the one with 150 hp engine which seemed underpowered to me and apparently to someone else because they moved to a 160 hp engine fairly quickly it seems.) There are things that I like about the Piper products. A low wing is fun and looks more like an airplane wants to look I think. I don't like the one door up front for the pilots. I'm not a fan of crawling over the seat. I also like the ease of flaps input in the Cessna's - a big ole lever seems a bit much. Over all, they are sleeker looking - low wings. My favorite: Pilatus PC 12 NG
Here's their high wing - Pilatus PC 6 Porter
I haven't seen one in real life but I'm looking. I do love the Cessna Caravan for rougher stuff which is what this guy looks like he's ready for. I bet these are all over Alaska.
I have yet to buy my Texas lottery ticket. Lol.
The PC 12 NG is lovely.
That's not what I'm flying.
But ... the air is the same!
