The Beech Bonanza and Baron are not bad IFR planes either.Maybe more "personal airplanes" than the 182/Seneca..

Why is the Baron more personal than the Seneca? The Seneca way more affordable...Cheers,- jahman.

For real life training I'd say the most popular twin is the seminole and the single is the 172... there's no good seminole around and no great 172. Carenado's is alright. Actually the default c172 with RealAir fde update is probably the best.

OK, bad choice of words... I was making a distinction between common "training aircraft"and desirable "personal aircraft".The Beech is a notch up in "desirability" and cost...But the Carenado Seneca is a great choice!

From my personal experience I have seen more Senecas than Seminoles around at FBOs. I think it might be for two reasons. It's easier to maintain as there are more of them and it's more profitable to rent since it is more useful to a solo renter. Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkJB

Agreed! Those twin 300 hp continental sixes sure are tempting. And the Baron is also bigger and taller. Would love fly one... The Baron was also Scott Crossfield's choice for a personal aircraft.Cheers,- jahman.

The Bonanza is one of the most stable, easily flown, enjoyable SE-Airplanes on the planet. It's a rock solid instrument platform.The Baron is the snootiest of light twins on the planet, and for good reason; It's stable, fast, makes a manly noise, looks good, and it cost an arm and a leg. So the Baron is a winner for me.Cessnas are all around mediocre. I love them and they're my favorite, but Beech has the best instrument platform(s). (that is the OP, after all)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the op asking about the most popular planes for IFR training. Not the most popular twin desired after training.Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkJB

Agreed... not many people are going to train in a nice plane like a bonanza or baron... it's going to be in a cessna or twin piper...

He'll, if I had a Baron I sure as he'll wouldn't have it on leaseback at a flight school. It was enough just finding melted snickers bars and tipped over coka colas in the back seat of the cruiser.JBSent from my iPhone using TapatalkJB

By the time you've put some nice avionics in the Seneca, it actually is a treat to fly!

Baron 55s are quite common with multi-engine training. But I digress. Wouldn't want to suggest good IFR platforms to the OP.The C172 and Archer are the most prevalent trainers (PPL and IFR). The Seminole and Seneca are the most prevalent multi's.

I suggest you look at the DA42 for twin training. There are a couple out there to choose from.Ray

Something to consider. It would be nice to know if the single will have glass or round instruments. There are some easy choices for each one.Ray

Great airplane. Unbelievable fuel usage! Very fun to fly and a quiet cabin to boot.
