The Marlowe Family – life in Lower Slower Delaware

For Sale: 1971 PA28-140 Piper Cherokee Affordable Ownership

UPDATED INFO:  You may have noticed that his plane has been for sale for quite a while.  To be honest, I haven’t been very aggressive in selling the plane. Frankly I like having it.  However, the rising cost of fuel has pushed recreational flying out of my means.  The plane must go.  Make my loss your gain.  I made a few mistakes in the specs I listed previously – they have been corrected and the price adjusted appropriately.

I bought this to learn to fly and now you can do the same.  584FL is a basic, reliable Cherokee.  Make her yours for only $29,000 – now $27,000

New Interior!

Leather seats

This picture is from just after I returned from passing my checkride – a great day!

The wing tips are the worst part of the exterior paint. They are stable and have not been a problem at all.

The right wing tip. The fiberglass is solid, but the paint has hairline cracks through it.

Nice clean blue and white paint scheme.

Belly, just cleaned. Come and visit the plane to see how clean the engine runs.

The external power port comes in handy when you forget to turn off the master.

The stabilator

The instruments are laid out in the standard arrangement.

The VOR works great. The loran is inop. The transponder and radio are basic and reliable.
