Plastic Planes, Part Four: That's a Wrap

AVweb's Dave Higdon recently managed to put three all-new composite, four-seat, IFR singles through their paces all in the same week. In this last of a four-part series, he compares the Diamond DA40 Star, the Cirrus SR-20 and the Lancair Columbia 300. Is there a "best of the bunch"? How do they compare to each other? Is an airplane made from composites better or worse than one made from aluminum? Have composite airplanes "arrived"? Don't miss the answers to these questions, and more.
