A great family aircraft is special these days when gas and landing fees are expensive. 6 adults will be no problem at all and with a gasburn of 12 gallons per hrs thats 2 gallon per hour per person. You can't even drive a bike for it. The Piper Cherokee Six 260 is a great and very easy plane to fly and land . I call it my familybus. Good luck with your choice. The Rolls Royce Truck under the single engines airplanes . Great fuel load - great range- 6 persons- Strong and reliable airplane- 8-10 gallons per hour cruise . Brought me over the Nothern Atlantic Route from Curacao -Florida- New York exclusive route- Canada-Greenland- Iceland-Norway- The Netherlands-to Belgium. I love it because its so easy to fly My 1973 Piper Cherokee Six 260 is for me and the whole family the greatest plane I can wish for.
