Piper PA-28-180 Archer

Aircraft description

REDUCED: MUST SELL!
Was $119,900
Now $98,900 (fast settlement appreciated)

Introduced in 1972, the PA-28-180 Archer differed from the Warrior in both horsepower and size. The new design created a five-inch fuselage stretch; a larger door, cabin and stabilator area; with a 115kt cruise and improved climb performance. The aircraft also added 125 lbs gross weight and an instrument panel redesign.

Offering very low engine hours (since factory new), this tidy example has been fitted with 'Knots 2U' stabilator and wing-tip mods plus a variety of interior details. Aircraft will require annual, which expired in February. Vendor will include with sale (and painted spats) for $6,000 additional to asking price, or as is depending on negotiation.
