    Took my first flight in the cheetah two weeks ago. What a wonderful platform for learning. Have trained in Pipers and Cessnas but this Cheetah is the most friendly plane I’ve flown. A local organization bought the plane for introducing high school kids to flight. I think this plane will be a great trainer and is extremely economical to operate.

    Thank you to Rainbow Aircraft and to Midwest Sport Aviation for making such a fine and affordable airplane.
