Piper PA-24 Comanche

General information about the Comanche

The single-engine light aircraft, Comanche, was designed and marketed by the US manufacturer Piper Aircraft Corporation. The machine took off for the first time in May 1956 and had its market entry one year later. The production time is from 1957 to 1972. In this time 4,857 pieces were built. The machine has a retractable landing gear and is used specifically as a training and cruising aircraft. After Hurricane Agnes, production ceased as the production halls in Pennsylvania were destroyed. The Piper PA-24 was then replaced by the Piper PA-32. To better compete with the Beechcraft Bonanza, the Comanche was developed.
