Nice plane.
I got some time in those, probably 100-150 hrs.
Good viz, easy to fly and the canopy can be opened a few inches in flight if memory serves me right?
Faster than a similar powered Cherokee.
Highly recommended.

If I trained in one of those, could I get signed off on a 172? or is that different strokes?

Before you take the THT braintrust to heart, have a thorough discussion with your buddy as to what requirements you need to meet, including insurance, not just FAA. If he is just needing a warm body for the right seat and paying the above listed, getting there will be fairly easy but rather expensive. If he is looking for a left seat PIC, insurance is potentially the driving force behind experience and that is a tougher row to hoe, patience will be required, again talk with your friend before you make your plans. After you and your friend gives solid info on experience and and if insurance is involved then go to the nearest airport that has a flight school on site, talk with the owner and tell him what you plan to do, he will is the one to get you headed in the right direction with ratings. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

I almost bought a tigera while back 5-6 yrs

it was immaculate, in destin, new paint, $50k

I really wanted it but i was scared off by (rumors maybe) parts were getting hard to find.

Wont have that prob w a 172

$30-$35k (closer to 35) will get a pretty Nice low time 172 if you are patient

eta i know its not a tiger but same make re: parts

Best thing I ever did was get the King series videos applicable to the license I was pursuing. Also get the Gleim Test Prep. Has all the question you could be asked on each test. I went to ground school but these were valuable. Your examiner will get a hold of your written results and during your oral exam ask you those specific questions. So score 100%!

As written earlier, if the aircraft has a max gross takeoff weight of 12,500 lbs or under and/or is not turbojet powered, only the applicable category and class rating is required (airplane single engine land, airplane single engine sea, etc). Once you have your PPL, you can legally fly any non-turbojet single engine aircraft weighing 12,500 lbs or under, not requiring a high performance or complex endorsement (until you have high performance and complex endorsements).

What's legal is not necessarily safe or prudent. Some amount type specific instruction is always advisable.

If you're not flying several times each week, you'll spend additional time relearning what you've forgotten from previous lessons, rather than progressing steadily through the training curriculum.

60 hours for a PPL is a very realistic prediction.
Solid advise. 60 hours is realistic at a satellite airport. Add another 15 or 20 if operating from a busier/controlled field, as time will be spent waiting to be cleared to takeoff, getting away from the main airport's controlled airspace and into a practice area, return from same, ect...

Not mentioned but you might want to looking into building a desktop simulator. It will help cut down on the hours to get your licenses. I built one and have used it throughout my career. They aren’t toys. I found them very helpful doing flows, flying profiles and instrument work. Microsoft FSX is the one I use.

if you want to be paid, legally, you have to be a commercial rated pilot, just ride along on a single pilot plane no proble. Have fun.

You start out with the Microsoft FSX software. I think it’s $100. Get a joystick for $25 with throttle and start flying. That’s the most basic entry level package. I think FSX comes with about 20 aircraft. I think the C172 is one of them. FSX accepts add on software such as scenery, additional 3rd party designed aircraft, add on airports. You can view the cockpit in virtual realty if you buy a VR setup. All the instrument approaches are integrated into FSX. You can change the weather conditions. You can use the FSX Air traffic control or add VATSIM and use real live controllers. How real you want to get is without limits. People have built incredibly realistic home PC simulators. But for you the basic setup will work for now. You’ll want to fly the same plane in flight sim that your actually flying. After a lesson you can go home and practice what you did on the flight simulator. Here’s an example I found on YouTube....
