Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk

The Piper Tomahawk has earned its reputation as an excellent flight training platform and private pilot time builder, with a better accident record per flight hour than its Cessna 150/152 competition.


This aircraft has been well cared-for and hangared, with a gleaming 2-pack paint and new interior, low total time and GPS - all to suit the RPL/PPL pilot, student or someone who wants a mid-range tourer at a fraction of the cost of other types.
