Hi,

For the first time, yesterday, I flew the Diamond Evolution DA20-C1. I thought it was a nice airplane. Much better than the previous Piper Tomahawk or C172 that I flew before. The DA20-C1 is better than the Pa-38 in every way. (in my own opinion) Which is your fav. single engine plane to fly? and why?

Thanks

Vio

Superior decisions reduce the need for superior skills.

Goboeing,

That is hilarious and ironic.

There is a lady that owns a Mooney out at Spicewood Airport where I take lessons. She is a CFI and her husband was a senior captain at NW flying 747 out of NRT. I took a lesson in her Mooney and absolutely loved it!

Give me a nice slow J-3 Cub any day...But, But, But, a 450/600 HP Stearman still warms my heart.


If wishes were horses, a Tail Dragger I would fly...

Citabria. High power to weight ratio; you can climb up high, do a tailspin, and climb back up for another one very quickly.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

As for me, a C172RG is my favourite a/c to fly in (at the moment), with very limited flying experience, I think it is much better than Piper Cherokees/Warriors/Archers, although an Archer III is a close second to that.
