Piper PA-22 Colt

Piper PA-22 Colt is a light sports aircraft from the United States.

The Piper Colt was given type approval on October 21, 1960. It is a highwing aircraft and the fuselage is of metal piping covered with canvas. There were two versions of the Piper Colt, the Standard Custom and Super Custom. The difference lay in equipment and instrumentation. The plane was also approved for use with floats. Between 1961 and 1964, 1,827 of them were built.

The Museum’s Piper Colt, LN-BND, serial number 22-8947, was built in 1961 and was purchased by Ragnar Johnsen in 1986. The aircraft was a common sight over the city of Bodø until 1992, when it was overturned and wrecked in a storm. The plane had then been flown for 5004 hours. Ragnar Johnsen restored the aircraft before handing it over to the Norwegian Aviation Museum.
