The Piper PA-28 is a single engine low-wing, fixed gear, four-seater airplane. Apart from providing a better clearance between the wing tips and the ground, the dihedral angle also provides greater stability in the roll axis. The great stability, together with a sturdy frame and excellent performance make it perfect for training purposes and for personal use. They often serve as a pilot’s first “real” airplane after primary training.
