Cherokee partner yqt

#1 Post by ShawnR » Mon Sep 25, 2017 4:08 pm

Wondering if anyone is interested in sharing a Cherokee in Thunder Bay. I am looking for one now but casually. Having a partner or two might get things moving.

PM me if interested.

Cheers
Shawn

(Not sure if this post is OK here. Moderators let me know? Thanks )

Which model?
A Cherokee 6-260 could peek some interest or even the 4 seat -235 can haul a small family a decent distance.

I was not thinking that big as I mostly wanted to pursue a commercial license. I have a few hundred on a ppl. But open to suggestions and depends on what comes along at a fairprice and how many were interested. I think 2 to 3 partners is enough on a plane but, of course, depends on how active they each are, expectations, personalities, etc. Worth having a coffee and discussing. Personally, my wife hates flying so I don't need a family hauler. :?

I don't have any experience with Cherokees (only been in a couple for a ride) but I would think the 150, 151 or 160 model would be the better choice overy the 140. Considering an ifr one too so as to keep options open if I was successful in getting the cpl, next step would seem to be a single ifr rating. (Getting way ahead of myself here though). I am not looking for another career. I am řetiring in a few years. Just interested in the challenge and learning.

I figured I would throw this post out there and see if there was any interest. Thanks for asking. Good point

On a side note, if anyone knows of a Cherokee that appears that it might be for sale, pm me...? I found a few through Kijiji and barnstormers but not the one that makes me want to jump yet.

Thanks, Cheers

I'm not a candidate, but can say the 151 was a sweet flying airplane. When it first came out, I was running a flying school at Pitt Meadows and one of my renters said it perfectly ..... "Piper has made it a nice airplane by putting a Cessna wing on it."

140 is a fine machine too. Ours has a 160HP engine and 908 lbs usable! Don't get that in a later 150 or 160 :)

I have had a c150 and tomahawk. Loved the tomahawk (partial to low wings ) but I am not a large guy and to take a larger person, I had to watch my fuel. I took a flight in a warrior out of a St Catharines flight school once when I was down there and it felt much more stable compared to what I was used to. Time to move up again.....
Does anyone know what it takes to keep an ifr equipped plane (non commercial), ifr legal? I have heard of altimeter certifications. ..are there other tests for instruments annually? Not sure if I could get much done in Thunder Bay. I am wondering how much it adds to the annual cost. Might have to go dig through some CAR'S.
Lots to research

CAR625 appendix C requires the same altimetric certification to be done every 24 months for any aircraft that flies VFR in classes B, C or D (transponder) airspace, and if you have a transponder it must be tested at two year intervals regardless of what classes of airspace you use. If you do all this already there’s no extra IFR testing requirement.

GPS updates will be a big additional cost - mine is about $1000/yr

keeping everything else serviceable can cost more (if it breaks) - VOR radios and indicators, etc

The GPS issue is important; it’s more or less impossible now to fly anywhere under IFR without at least one certified GPS installed. Two, and your database costs double.
