The Piper PA28, Lycoming engine, 4 cylinder direct drive horizontally aligned air-cooled is popular with our students and great for the early stages of flight training. 

What the manufacturer says:

"The four-place Piper Warrior has been a flight school favorite since its inception.

Dependable and resilient with responsive handling, the Warrior is an ideal aircraft for the demands of student pilot training.

Built on the same quality of its Cherokee ancestry, the Warrior comes equipped with a 160 hp Lycoming engine. The Warrior is an exceptional training platform to meet a multitude of flight school requirements."
