  1. I also trained and got my Private in a Piper Colt PA22. No flaps, but she would come on down when the power was chopped. A good teacher for stalls and maneuvers. When the instructor got out for my solo, I thought that first takeoff at 500fpm was zooming.

  2. Ercoupe was included. soloed in a PA18…on skis. All those listed were from my early years in flying.

  3. No Piper Cherokee 140? $20K-$30K puts them on the list but at the top end. Flies nice and is good looking with wheel pants.

  4. Please be aware these are the average prices for average condition. It’s reasonable to expect $2-3K for your annuals, and if it’s near an engine overhaul when sold then several times that.

  5. It would be interesting to see a list like this with a side bar giving estimated costs for engine rebuilds, Stits or Ceconite recovering and maybe a worst case scenario where both of those and a major structural repair like replacing a wood spar or rusted tube components. Or show a representative budget for addressing all these issues over time.
