Hi Kelvin,
Although I did type Piper Flyer, the article links are all from the Cessna Flyer website.

The most important point in any airplane purchase is to define your need. What airplane will fill your needs most of the time.

If you like to just get up and experience the magic of flying, one airplane will suit.

If you're most prevalent use is to haul the family, or loads of camping gear, or tools up to remote unimproved landing strips, one type of airplane will suit.

Every airplane is a compromise. I've owned a tube and fabric Piper PA 12 Super Cruiser, a Cessna 182 and now own a Piper PA 24 Comanche. Three very different airplanes.

Right now the Comanche does what I want--to cover ground safely and economically.

Define your need will be the first step in airplane ownership.

If there's a flying club near you, join. That will give you the opportunity to experience flying different airplanes.

Hello all.
My name is Kelvin and after many year of other life priorities having to come first I am finally finishing up my PPL (already solo).
With things finally on track and doing very well I am starting to think about aircraft ownership (after I get my PPL).
Since I am training in a Skyhawk I have though about the Skylane.
Came here to learn more about the Cessna line and hope to find tips on buying the right plane for me and my family.
