Piper PA-28-140 Cherokee Cruiser

Aircraft description

First flown in 1964, the PA-28 140 was originally shipped with only 2 seats, as a trainer. Realising the market for a four-seat medium range tourer, Piper fitted the aircraft with a 150HP (112KW) Lycoming engine, but kept the -140 designation.

With NIL accident history, in tidy original condition, this very low hour example offers superb value for the newly licensed RPL, PPL or CPL student pilot. First registered in 1969, and assembled in Bankstown from factory new, the aircraft has always been hangared. NIL corrosion, with LAME inspection welcomed as condition of sale. Never used as a trainer and on first life engine, VH-PBE comes with complete logbooks and annual until March 2024.
