The Piper PA-29 Papoose was an American single-engined training monoplane designed by Piper, only one was built and the type did not enter production.[1]


In the late 1950s Piper started to design a two-seat (side-by-side) low-wing monoplane trainer built of fibreglass reinforced plastic construction.[1] Originally intended to be powered by a 100 hp (75 kW) Continental O-200 engine, the prototype instead used a 108 hp (81 kW) Lycoming O-235-CIB piston engine.[1] The prototype, registered N2900M first flew in 1962 but the type did not enter production.[1] The Papoose prototype was on "permanent loan" to the EAA Museum at Oshkosh from 7/17/1973 until 6/25/1987 when it was returned to Lock Haven. It currently resides in the Piper Aviation Museum in Lock Haven.[1]
