The Piper Aircraft family is one that is known for several good reasons and the top being one to manufacture just about an airplane for everyone. With a company of quite a long history before it finally got to become known as Piper Aircraft as its manufacturer, Piper is glad to introduce its many produce all of them not only built with great features but also built to have an edge over other aircrafts under their same class.
Piper Dakota is one great addition to the Piper Aircraft family for several reasons topped by the fact that this is one aircraft that can go really fast. The Dakota could cruise at about 143 knots giving it a slight difference over its competitors in its class. Although it appears that slight difference may not make a difference at all, you are wrong to think this. This slight difference becomes really big considering that Dakota only has five more horsepower as compared to say, a Cessna 182.
Another reason that makes it a great addition to the Piper Aircraft family which the Dakota takes pride in is that it has a great range. While some of its competitors like the 182 has a range of about 445 nautical miles, this Piper can actually go about 650 nautical miles. Now this is truly important for aviators who fly long distances. The great range can be a potential time-saver as well as money-saver. This is because you need not descend, fill up, take off again and climb back to altitude during your long distance flights.
The Piper Aircraft family welcomes this wonderful addition into its collection of competitively-priced aircrafts. And to think that its many significant features could say no less than its advantage over others for the buying populace. The Piper Dakota is one that any aviator would love to have and own for possibly the rest of his life. For the performance that this aircraft is able to deliver for its owner, the price that it gets sold for is no doubt cheap to shell out. And for this, the moment you get your hands on a Dakota, you are sure to never want it gone.
Amongst the great members of the Piper Aircraft family are Piper J-3 Cub, Piper Super Cub, Piper Tri-pacer, Piper Cherokee (along with its variations, Piper Cherokee 140, 160 and 180), Piper Archer, Piper Warrior, Piper Saratoga, Piper Arrow, Piper Comanche, and Piper Malibu. All these aircrafts are guaranteed to excel when put alongside its competition in its class and so like the Dakota, other members in the Piper Aircraft family are no less than really valuable finds. The Dakota as an addition to the Piper Aircraft family reinforces the peoples view of the Piper Aircraft as one of the leading aircraft producers.
