Group flying opportunities & questions
A new non-equity group at North Weald is being formed with a total of 6 members and we have 4 members to fill.

The aircraft
Is a Piper PA 28-200R Series 11 Arrow built in 1973. The aircraft is based at North Weald

The aircraft was bought by the present owner in February 2008 and has had a lot of renovation work done over the past 2 years. The aircraft has never been used as a training aircraft.

The Arrow is acknowledged to be a very capable four-seater tourer and the combination of a 200HP engine, a variable pitch propeller and retractable undercarriage provide speed and efficiency. This is a properly equipped and reliable IFR equipped touring aeroplane

The aircraft cruises at around 120kts and burns around 31 litres per hour

The engine has around 400 hours (as of March 2021) - Lycoming IO-360-C1C The airframe hours are just over 4,600 (as of March 2021)

The MTOW is 1,202 KG
