While I've never personally flown in a low-wing GA a/c, I once asked my instructor when I was gettin my PPL why the cessna was/is so popular and he said its because the high wing allows for good visibility in Ground Reference Manuevers and when finding waypoints on cross-countries.

It costs roughly £5000. It's quite expensive to do a PPL in the UK. Other countries are far cheaper such as the United States where it costs roughly £3000.
|Quoting IFACN (Reply 5):|
Speaking of costs for a PPL, in Italy it's about EUR 11000 (ï¿½ 7000/ $13000, at current exchange rate).
One hour on a C172 at my airfield costs about EUR 150 + takeoff and landing taxes (another 15 to 20 EUR total).
Frankly speaking, it's another good reason to kick my country in the a.. and move abroad
