The Piper Cherokee series was introduced in 1960 by Piper Aircraft to fill the need for a four seat trainer that could compete directly with the Cessna series of aircraft. The low wing design of the Cherokee offers a panoramic view of the horizon with surprisingly stable flying characteristics. However, the aircraft really came to be well known after being featured in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger where it played a critical role for the film's climactic attack on Fort Knox.
Our Cherokees are powered by a generous 180 horsepower Lycoming engine providing excellent utility, speed, comfort and carrying capacity. Using the latest touch screen garmin GPS, traffic display, onboard weather and digital G5 instrumentation, students will have access to the latest in avionics throughout their training in the aircraft.
