A friend of mine is beginning on the journey to his PPL. he doesn’t want to spend tons of money renting Cessna 172s, and he wants an airplane that can take himself and some luggage to visit his extended family 300 to 500 miles away. He would rather buy an airplane that can fit his mission train in it and enjoy it rather than go through the rental process or purchase a trainer only to sell it for a capable steed. He has an opportunity to purchase an arrow, and was asking me about using it as a trainer. He’s flown with me in the Lance many times and sees the Arrow essentially as a junior Lance, which is reasonably correct. it doesn’t seem like too much to ME for someone to learn from scratch in an arrow, but I also realize that I am not seeing it from the same perspective is that of a new student. I know the first year of insurance is really going to suck, but let’s say we get over that part. How difficult is it to add the blue knob and the folding wheels onto the demands of a new student pilot?
