Piper Arrow

The Piper Arrow is the retractable gear version of Piper’s PA-28 line and is very similar to the Piper Warrior in design. It is the standard aircraft used for commercial pilot training and complex endorsements in our course work. As a rental aircraft, the Arrow is a fantastic and economical cross country aircraft.

Most structures are of aluminum alloy. The airplane is a four-place, low wing, single engine airplane equipped with retractable tricycle landing gear, having a steerable nose wheel and two main wheels.

This airplane is certified in the normal category. In the normal category all aerobatic maneuvers including spins are prohibited. The airplane is approved for day and night VFR/IFR operations when equipped in accordance with F.A.R. 91 or F.A.R 135.

The aircraft is powered by a Lycoming IO-360-C1C6 and is rated at 200 horsepower. It is a four cylinder, direct drive, horizontally opposed, fuel injected engine. Major accessories include a starter, a 60-amp 14-volt alternator, shielded ignition, vacuum pump drive, fuel pump, propeller governor and a dry automotive type induction air filter.

Fuel is stored in two 38.5 gallon tanks, one in each wing. Each tank is equipped with a filler neck indicator tab to aid in determining fuel remaining when the tanks are not full. The tanks are attached to the leading edge of the wing with screws and are an integral part of the wing structure. An electric fuel pump serves as a back-up feature. Fuel quantity and pressure are indicated on gauges located in the engine gauge cluster on the instrument panel.

The primary electrical power source is a 14-volt, 60-amp alternator, which is protected by an alternator control unit that incorporates a voltage regulator and an overvoltage relay. Secondary power is provided by a 12-volt, 35-ampere hour battery.
