THE AIRCRAFT WE USE
The PA 28-140 Cherokee Rated at 150 hp - "A SUCCESS STORY"
We are often asked,why did we choose the specific type make and model ?
The Cherokee 140 is one of the most successful training and touring aircraft ever build.If an aircraft is well maintained and looked after,then it will serve the purpose it was built forever!!This is not something that we have invented, it is a fact !
The PA-28 is in the Light Aircraft Category and given the method of construction, engine reliability and power output,flight characteristics and the hundreds of thousands of today's professional pilots it has trained,we assure you, that this is the aircraft for you!!
For an introduction to electronic displays,we have Equipped the aircraft with a Garmin GPS and Optionally with the Garmin Aera 660.
Unlike the very light aircraft being used for training purposes,the Cherokee is stable, docile and very reliable.In comparison,due to the Lycoming as opposed to Rotax engines, It can operate with ease in the Hi temperatures of the summer and due to its flight characteristics in very challenging windy conditions.
As a result you will not be limited by the summer conditions in Cyprus and more importantly you will be able to gain the knowledge and experience required to make you a better,safer pilot !
Many new aircraft produced for flight training, besides of being in the Very Light Category,come with electronic displays which are quite impressive.It is also equipment that almost all commercial airline aircraft use.
On the other hand, it doesn't take long for a pilot to get used to these displays.They are designed to make life much easier...
Learning to fly on an aircraft with gauges gives you the advantage of achieving something more difficult.If you come across an aircraft with electronic displays it will be a step down not a step up !! This will give you much more confidence and the advantage to easily adapt to any aircraft's instrument panel.
Our aircraft is operated and maintained to the highest standards under a Part-145 Maintenance and CAMO organisations.Further all other requirements issued by EASA are fulfilled
