Rob, beautiful bird. Sorry to hear that you're moving on, but I understand the reason. Good luck with the next phase.

Blue is definitely faster than red or green... :D

Well I can tell you, after a year of flying 185’s, 206’s, 207’s, and 210’s, nothing floats through the air with such ease on the controls as a 170!

I recently had a check ride and the old CASA examiner who was doing it had the controls more than I did . I glanced over to him when he said he was demonstrating a forced landing and he had he biggest grin on his face . He was having a great time .

I had a similar experience with a friend on the field here who is an FAA inspector and retired crop duster. It was his first time ever in a 170 and I never touched the controls through a half hour of flying and 3 takeoffs and landings. If his grin hadn’t been stopdrilled at his ears, the top of his head would have broken off.

Guys this bird is sold pending payment.

If my buyer’s financing falls through I will answer those of you who have messaged and emailed me the last couple days.

Thanks,
Rob

I know the Piper guys love their airplanes and I don't mean to demean it but.... I spent 4 hours in a PA12 yesterday and although the power-to-weight was nice...frankly... it sucks compared to a 170. The flight controls are clunky and not well synchronized/coordinated in throw or effectiveness, IMO. Not sure if it's a typical airplane of the fleet or not but I'll be happy to be back in the Cessna..... still had Fun Tho!)

28 yrs. ago I instructed a student in a PA-16, and and flew a PA-22/20, either of which would have been Piper’s direct competition for the 170. I’m 6’2” and found both uncomfortable (especially in the back seat) and I didn’t really care for the flying qualities of either one of them. I’ve never researched the prices they all sold for new but I assume the Pipers were priced less than 170s. If not it would’ve been a “no brainer” for many reasons.
