I was just over that the Piper website.
and noticed that they have or are going to start building the Cherokee 6 again.
For those of you not in the know the Cherokee 6 is the big member of the Cherokee family. It makes a great bush airplane and is used up here quite a bit in that role. It has a wider cabin then a 206 and I think it is a bit easier to load. Just wish it had a door on both sides of the cabin for the flight crew.
They are calling it a 6X and claiming it is a fixed gear version of the Lance. Which is kind of funny because I always thought the Lance was a retractable gear Cherokee
What isn't good is the asking price. 350,000 dollars. Frankly I think the bush operaters up here are going to be sticking with piecing together all of the older Cherokee 6's up here for a while yet.
What good is building aircraft if your customers can't afford them?
