Our Plane

We currently own a Piper Dakota, when we have sufficient members or interest we’ll add additional aircraft.   Our Piper Dakota is a 235 Horsepower, full fuel, 4 passenger airplane. It’s a great IFR platform for training or those long cross country vacations. It is a dependable and well maintained airplane that you’ll be proud to fly.
