PA28 – Warrior
Our SIX new Piper Warrior III’s are the flagship of the MFS Fleet. These are the aircraft that you will commence your training in at MFS. They will quickly become one of your truly favourite aircraft to fly, with the responsive and stable flight platform that they offer. What is special about our Piper Warrior III aircraft, is that they are one of the newest Piper training fleet in Australia. You may be interested to learn that the average age of the Australian General Aviation training fleet is 29 years old. The average age of an MFS aircraft however, is a mere 2.3 years. We know how much trainee pilots invest in learning to fly, and so we believe they deserve to be flying in the newest and best equipped aircraft available.
PA44 – Seminole
The Piper Seminole is a classic and highly successful multi-engine trainer, which has been around for nearly four decades now. Being relatively simple to fly and handle, it forms the perfect multi-engine trainer, and it is for this reason why we use it to complete student’s initial multi-engine endorsement. Furthermore the Seminole is fitted with two 180Hp Lycoming engines, enabling them to sit comfortably at 150Kts. This provides a fast and stable platform for students to complete the remainder of their Commercial Pilot Licence on. We also utilise our Seminole’s to complete part of our NVFR syllabus and our Multi-Engine Command Instrument Rating syllabus.
PA28 – Archer
Our Piper Archer III’s feature the slightly larger 180Hp Lycoming engine when compared to the Warrior, and allow students to become familiar with a small ‘overhead panel’. Their faster cruise speed provides the bridge between a Warrior and our multi-engine Piper Seminoles. The Archer is the aircraft you will use to complete the first stage of your Commercial Pilot training, prior to embarking on your multi-engine endorsement.
