CESSNA 152

The Cessna 152 is an American two-seat, fixed tricycle gear, general aviation airplane, used primarily for flight training and personal use.

First delivered in 977 as the 978 model year, the 52 was a modernization of the proven Cessna 50 design. The 52 was intended to compete with the new Beechcraft Skipper and Piper Tomahawk, both of which were introduced the same year. Additional design goals were to improve useful load through a gross weight increase to 670 lbs (757 kg), decrease internal and external noise levels and run better on the then newly introduced 100LL fuel.

Piper PA-28 Cherokee

In the single engine category, the Piper is another name to reckon with. With almost all its aircraft displaying the low wing design, (with some exceptions like the Piper Cub), the Piper flyer has its sport aircraft appeal and soft landings with the addition of enhanced suspension systems over other aircraft in its class.

All members of the PA-28 family are all-metal, unpressurized, four-seat, single-engine piston-powered airplanes with low-mounted wings and tricycle landing gear. All PA-28 aircraft have a single door on the co-pilot side, which is entered by stepping on the wing.

Competition for the PA-28 series include the Cessna 172, the Grumman American AA-5 series and the Beechcraft Musketeer.
