BPC Welcome to Avcom.

To answer your question 'WHY, most PPL students would have most probably been flying a Cherokee 140 or 180.
I get that. During my training (1986), I generally flew on 140/180's at FAWB, but why not an Archer? That was the first question.
But, the real question is, why are we having so many accidents/incidents with first time Solo Students?
Just take a look at the recent accidents listed on the forum.

Generally students will fly the most economical aircraft at a flight school... pointless to do flight training on an aircraft with the same airframe, but bigger more thirsty engine (upgraded to enhance performance and thus payload) when its just one chap on board.

Seems like the pilot did a very good job here with this forced lob, regardless of his or her experience. PA28s aren't the best gliders!

Any news regarding the reason for this "out landing". Went past the plane just after it happened and must say the PIC did a great job, he had some major power lines in front of him on his way down =D>

I have many hours both night time and day time in OIN. She is a beautiful plane to fly and has an autopilot and a great GPS.
Great job in putting her down safely!
