N43181 - Piper Warrior - $119/wet

Western Air Flight Academy

The PA-28 is a low-cost airplane offering safe flight characteristics and good performance.

N43181 boasts a recently-overhauled engine and a climb propeller. It has also been upgraded with a Stratus ADS-B in and out receiver, which also provides traffic on your iPad with ForeFlight.

Warriors are primarily distinguished from their Cherokee predecessors by their double-tapered wing planform and two-foot-wider wingspans. The stabilator, sometimes described as a flying tail, is one of the Warrior’s distinguishing features. The entire horizontal tail pivots as one to act as the elevator. While it gives pilots a lot of pitch control, the stabilator is primarily used because it is considered more economical to build than a conventional stabilizer/elevator.
