As much as I like Cessna and it's line high wing planes, the Piper Sport has sure looked like a winner to me in the light sport world.
However, it will be interesting to hear the gossip from the upcomming LSA convention.
My guess? Piper corporate culture wants to concentrate on higher margin, bigger, faster planes, and leave the grunt work of finding and instructing new pilots to Cessna.
Piper is at a loss now. Yes high-wings are nice, but Low wings are also very nice as well. Piper's LSA resembled the Evektors really well and I've never heard bad about the Evektors. But I agree, Piper has produced numerous bigger, faster, and better planes and I think that's their focus from here on out. But personally, I'd like to see Piper back in the LSA market at some point.
