I fully understand why flight schools use them but they fly like ****. Pull the power and they sink like a rock. I flew a few of them at chino (DuBois) and there's an ass for every seat but mine don't like them as a plane I'd want to own.Years ago I got interested in buying a Varga that was advertised for sale. Good looking airplane. Was just about ready to request a flight when the owner/seller said, “You’ll love flying it. It flies just like a Cherokee.”
Now I have nothing against Cherokees, (would love to have an early 180) but I was looking for something much more sporty.
