The forces behind the FloridaFlying YouTube channel have posted a video, “Top 10 Most Beautiful General Aviation Airplanes,” with lots of inflight video to enjoy.
Check it out below, then let us know: Do you agree with the top 10 choices? What would you add — or delete — from the list?
Robert Dale says
They are all nice, but no collection of the most beautiful is complete without the Staggerwing Beech.
Aristoteles Socrates Onassis says
Muito bonitos os novos avioes
Henry K. Cooper says
The P-180 is beautiful? Interesting maybe, but not beautiful. Same-same with the Starship.
I vote for the Cessna 310L and up.
Eric Ziegler says
Absolutely! It even SOUNDS great.

Duffy Spies says
They all work for me…
I’ve never made a tape…
What do I know???
Missed the mark by not including at least one of the beautiful sailplanes out there. Take a look!
I bet you date ugly women too. LOL You are dreaming if you think the original Swift 125 cruised at 180 mph. Some of the ones modified with larger engines, gear covers, etc. will do 180 or close to it. Saying that, I agree that the Swift belongs in the top 10 beauties. Some of your other picks make me wonder. How about the Cessna 180/185 and the 195? Maybe you need to do another video of the Top 100. Really enjoyed watching your video despite disagreeing with some of your picks.
He did a good job picking ten beauties.
The Lancair Columbia 300, 350, 400 series should be on the list. Pick one, since all three are, in the exterior beauty category, identical triplets.
PS: I wonder how many of us had our eyebrows lift a few centimeters when the fellow called a true beauty a “WHAAH-ko” instead of the proper “WAHH-ko”? At least he didn’t confuse the pronounciation with a Texas city’s name with the same spelling, like I did until a kind old-timer set me straight.

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is still true.
Gotta Love’em all! Thanks
Charlie Kile says
How bout the Beech Stagger Wing ?
Bruce Hinds says
Yeah Charlie, he even has a picture of one on the wall behind him, but it didn’t make his video.

Replace Aero Commander with Mitsubishi MU-2. Piaggio and Starship are so close in resemblance, I would go with Piaggio only since at least it is flying. Replace Starship with Lockheed Lodestar
Amateur at best, the kid can’t even pronounce “Waco” correctly. What a waste of time.
If only someone like you made the video then it would be perfect!
The pilots are Wackos but the airplane is a Waco!
Randy Rogers says
Remove the Aerostar and put the Staggerwing in!
Yes the 400 ls is a beauty and with the updated engines an amazing aircraft
