1973 Piper Cherokee PA28-140

I bought an airplane after receiving add-on training to my military helicopter rating from my time in the Army. I purchased a 1973 Piper Cherokee after the rental market in my area became too sparse and unreliable. I have flown nearly 50-60 hours since buying it in 2021. I absolutely love it and think that it allows me to continue to pursue a passion that started with me when I was a child. I have met some great private pilots with stories and tales that keeps me coming back for more. I have made some modifications to the plane by installing a Garmin 430W and Dual G5s for situational awareness and reduced pilot workload. In time, I'd like to transition to a more capable airplane with regards to speed and useful load. For now, I am enjoying the transition to airplane flying and the Piper Cherokee allows me to go at a pretty good pace! You can check out a couple of videos that I use to critique my flying and share my experiences with family and other aviation enthusiasts by viewing the link below and subscribing to my channel if you like.

  • Thank you Sir! I think the GoPro, or any recording device, offers a great way to critique my flights. It's easy to think that you did what you briefed however, there is no denying the video truth. I look forward to sharing more as i (we) venture off to different destinations and I welcome any feedback from other professionals like yourself!



  • Welcome to the Piper Owners Site. Enjoyed your video. I fly a 1972 PA28-140 Cherokee. Panel looks great.

  • Thank you very much! I really like the situational awareness that the Garmin 430W and the Foreflight on the IPAD offers.

  • Just checked out your new Utube video.

    Enjoyed the experience. Good job.
