Pilots - Fav. Single Engine Aicraft To Fly

Sat Nov 13, 2004 5:00 am

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

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.

At my school, our commercial high performance trainers are Socata Trinidad TB20s...they are really fun to 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.
