Of all the Pipers that I have owned, this is the one I miss the most and is also the one I have the most hours on. :(

We have sold our IKE after she has given me the most enjoyable and safe 65.8 hours I feel I have ever flown.

Myself and my dad spent some really good time travelling around in her and yesterday we said farewell to this beautiful aircraft.

Congratulations to the new owner, look after her and you will love every minute in the sky.

We are on to something bigger but will never forget the quality time this aircraft brought me.

Cheers IKE

Hi All,

Having looked through the thread, I have seen some beautiful aircraft. What I did notce however that some Piper aircraft shown in the photos do not have any flaps, eg the Piper Colt. Does the fact that the Piper Colt doesn't have any flaps have any negative effects on it when coming in to land, or slowing down ? What does one do in a case where it is loaded and needs that extra bit of lift ?

Thanks.

The flaps add little lift but lots of drag, and a Colt slideslips so well you really do not need them. First answer - no negative effects, in fact rather positive ones, like less complexity and maintenence, less pilot workload, less weight. To answer your second question, get a bigger engine (or a cold air induction system, more power for no added weight). The effect of flaps on takeoff is near nil.
