Aircraft of the Week: Piper PA-36 Pawnee Brave 375

The Piper PA-36 Pawnee is a single engine agricultural aircraft designed by Piper Aircraft and manufactured  from 1975-1981. The PA-36 started out as the PA-25, optimized for use with a more powerful engine, as well as new wings. Later development led to the Pawnee Brave 375 variant, which featured the 375 hp Lycoming IO-720-D1CD flat-eight engine.

The Pawnee Brave was designed primarily for agricultural use, specifically crop-dusting.
