G-CHER is currently based at Bagby Airfield, North Yorkshire. If you would like to hire the aircraft at it's home base, please select 'No' in 'Positioning Required'. If you would like us to move the aircraft to your local airfield, please select 'Yes'. A £250 positioning fee applies. 




G-CHER is a long standing member at Bagby. With her first flight being in 1982, she's seen a strong flying career of both flight training and private hire. She transferred from Carlisle Flight Training to Flying Fox aviation in 2015 and is now part of the CAVOK aircraft team. Now, you are able to continue her flying career as a solid hour building aircraft. 

The PA38 Tomahawk has been regarded as one of the most successful fixed wing training aircraft that Piper have produced. Whilst many pilots stay cautious of the T-Tail configuration, when flown properly, she handles superbly in the air.
