PA28R Turbo Arrow III/IV

PA28R Turbo Arrow III/IV

Just Flight

Following on from their award-winning TB-10 Tobago & TB-20 Trinidad, Tornado GR1, L-1011 Tristar Professional and Canberra PR9 add-ons, this highly detailed simulation of the PA-28R Turbo Arrow III and Arrow IV has been developed by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Arrow III, G-BGKU, based at Conington Airfield.

The PA-28R Turbo Arrow III and Arrow IV are four seater, turbocharged piston-engine aircraft equipped with a retractable tricycle landing gear and constant-speed propeller – ideal for touring and instrument training.

First available in 1977, the Turbo Arrow III was the first turbocharged variant of the PA-28R Arrow, retaining the conventional tail of the Arrow III and a new cowling which housed the six-cylinder turbocharged engine. The Turbo Arrow IV followed in 1979 and featured the distinctive T-tail which was common amongst other Piper aircraft.

The aircraft are flown all around the world and this add-on reflects that global popularity. The product features ten liveries from the USA, UK, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, Italy and the Czech Republic.
