1966 PA-28-180 Review by James Ellis.

What are your three top tips for people who own or are considering buying this model?

  1. Very safe airplane. Generally stalls end up in a wings-level, nose slightly down attitude. Little or no wing drop.
  2. On Hershey Bar-wing 180s, the plane can develop a high sink rate with nose up and wings level if you get too slow.
  3. Trim on the ceiling on older Cherokees is really a cool feature when you get used to it. Piper should put it back up there, not scrunched back between the seats behind the flap lever. (And they should keep the manual flap lever on all Cherokees!)
