Piper PA-38-112 Tomahawk

Aircraft description

Introduced in 1978, the Piper PA-38 Tomahawk was the company's answer to calls for a capable trainer that required positive spin-recovery input by the student. With two-door entry, a T-tail and powered by the ever-reliable Lycoming O-235 power plant (with a 2400hr TBO), there were almost 2500 units produced between 1977 and 1982.

This very tidy example offers low engine and propeller time, plus fresh paint from just over three years ago. This is the perfect aircraft for a newly licensed RPL / PPL, hour-builder for the CPL student, or General Aviation flight school trainer.
