N884AC – Piper Warrior II – $119/wet

The Piper Warrior offers low-cost flight training with safe flight characteristics and good performance. N844AC has a fresh low-time engine, new climb propeller, Garmin WAAS 430 and newly refurbished interior.

Warriors are primarily distinguished from their Cherokee predecessors by their double-tapered wing planform and two-foot-wider wingspans. The stabilator, sometimes described as a flying tail, is one of the Warrior’s distinguishing features. The entire horizontal tail pivots as one to act as the elevator. While it gives pilots a lot of pitch control, the stabilator is primarily used because it is considered more economical to build than a conventional stabilizer/elevator.
