Hey!

I did my PPL in a C152 and I had my first flight in a C152 to. Godo plane to get started on, can put her through quite a bit and shes fairly forgiving. However after getting my Multi I dont think I could get back in her, more of a PA-28 job if i'm flying the single's or the PA-44 for my Multi!

I rode in a 152 and I said to my self never again it's worth the extra 10 bucks more an hour for the 172. During the ride it looked like we were flying backwards if you know what I mean.

The 152 is great for basic training. If the student is big, he will most likely need to upgrade to he 172, but other than that, the 152 does the job great. Sure, it climbs slow and doesn't have a very fast cruising speed, but in many cases, it will save you much needed dough when it comes to pricing everything out.

I am learning on the 152 at the moment for my PPL. It may not have the speed or power of other GA aircraft but it is cheap to operate, reliable and forgiving on the controls - why it is the most popular trainer of all time. Last month we were up at 7,000 ft doing stalls, and it reaches 110 kts with ease. It may not be the most glamorous of light aircraft but it is perfect for training  Smile.

I am considering getting that FlightOne add on.

I don't think the 152 gets the credit is deserves. I even here it get referred to as a toy. Now I know, we all know any airplane is anything but a toy, most of these accusations are made by people that fly high and fast or not at all. As said I am a huge fan of the 152 I even have a tattoo on my right arm of a picture of the 152 I soloed in "tail # excluded". I haven't seen any new add ons lately tho, if anyone has any post the links please. FS9

BritPilot777: You flew the PA-28 and C152? Which one you like better at first. Is it true that the PA-28 is more stable and with the low wing has better visability.

I did my PPL in the C152, as soon as I was done, I started to my cross country's in the PA-28 (obviously after being checked out). More expensive per hour but a real nice plane to fly, more stable, and as you said, forward Visibility was good, same as the C152 really.

It just felt a lot nicer to fly, felt more like flying with a somewhat conventional throttle instead of the C152's throttle.
Out of the two I defiantly liked the PA-28 more, being a not so small person, the extra space was much more comfortable and she flew a lot better.

If you got anymore questions about the difference between the C152's and PA-28 get in touch!

Ahh....yes, the 152...!!!!

Great to fly when you're a student...very easy to fly and very forgiving!!!

One day, after taking off from STR we did a left turn to the E2 exit-point, the door opened and scared me to death, staring at the ground going only 70kts during the initial climb.

So always buckle up !!!  Smile

Other than that...a great plane!!!
