The Piper PA-44 Seminole is an American twin-engined light aircraft manufactured by Piper Aircraft.
The Seminole was built in 1979-82, in 1989-90, and again since 1995.
The first production Seminoles are equipped with two 180 hp Lycoming O-360-E1A6D engines. The right-hand engine is a Lycoming LO-360-E1A6D variant, which turns in the opposite direction to the left-hand engine. This feature eliminates the critical engine and makes the aircraft more controllable in the event that an engine needs to be shutdown or fails.
The PA-44 is a four-seat light aircraft and features a high T-tail similar to the T-tailed Arrow IV.
