Keep the Skinny Birds Flying Safely
In a discussion with a fellow pilot the question came up, How many PCs are still flying and how many are in the US. I remember a post asking a similar question,
but do not remember seeing the answer.
(have looked but have not found it.) So, anyone have an idea of the numbers?
Bill this is a list of the Porterfield's I compiled from the FAA Registry in 2009. I called many and wrote letters to many of the owners. On this list it shows about 27 that are airworthy in the US. I had a newer list of just the Porterfield's that I knew were airworthy, but I can't seem to find it. I believe there were 30 or so Airworthy Porterfield's at that time. Some are in other countries such as United Kingdom, New Zealand, France, Mexico, Canada, Israel, and Australia.
Here's a link to my list for Airworthy Porterfield's that I knew about in 2017. I'm sure it has changed. Here I have 31 listed as being Airworthy.
