The Piper PA-28-180 Archer is a four-seat, single-engine, low-wing aircraft made by the Piper Aircraft Company. First flown in 1960, the 180 horsepower Lycoming engine and fixed-pitch propellor make the Archer one of the more powerful aircraft in the PA-28 family.

The C23 Sundowner is a single engined, low wing aircraft that was produced by Beechcraft as an alternative to the early model Bonanza. It is a member of the Beechcraft Muskateer family of aircraft.

In 1970 the C23 version was introduced under the name ‘Muskateer Custom’ and was renamed in 1972 to the ‘Sundowner’. When properly equipped, the C23 can be approved for limited aerobatics.


The Citabria is a light single-engine, two-seat, fixed conventional gear airplane which entered production in the United States in 1964. Designed for flight trainingutility and personal use, it is capable of sustaining aerobatic stresses from +5g to -2g. Its name spelled backwards, “airbatic”, reflects this.
