N.1 Piper PA-28

The first members of the Cherokee family were the Cherokee 150 and the Cherokee 160 (PA-28-150 and PA-28-160), whose production began in 1961 (unless otherwise indicated, the model number is always referred to the power in horses) The current Warrior model is the descendant of the Cherokee 160.

In 1962, Piper added the Cherokee 180 (PA-28-180) with a 180 horsepower (134 kW) Lycoming O-360 engine. The higher power allowed to actually fly with all 4 occupied places (it also depended on the weight of passengers and on boarded fuel) and the model remains very popular in the used aircraft market. [1] In 1968, the cab was modified and the "push-pull" engine control with lever control was replaced. A third window was added on both sides, giving the fuselage a more modern appearance, as it appears in the current version. [source wikipedia]

The New Piper Aircraft

The company Piper Aircraft declared bankruptcy in 1991. In 1995 the New Piper Aircraft was created, which took the name of Piper Aircraft in 2006. Currently, the company produces two variants of the PA-28 Cherokee: the Warrior III (PA-28-161 ) from 160 hp (119 kW), and the Arrow (PA-28R-200) 200 hp (149 kW) with retractable landing gear.
