Was my least favourite Cherokee of all the ones I flew at 43. I purposely avoided flying her to try avoid going solo on it.... Which ended up happening anyway.

When I flew her she was still in the old 43 colours, like ZS-EEG.

Its rather boring posting endless photos of blue and white Pipers ... but I have a plan ... I want to create a representative selection of the aircraft at 43 so that past and current pupils have some reference to those aircraft they might have flown..

I hope I am not boring the casual viewer :roll:

How about a pic of the first Cherokee which Jim Davis bought from old Piet (the owner of Placo then) when he parted ways with Placo and with which he started his long aviation training career. It is still in the 43 Air School fleet and going strong!

Could only be a Piper!
