From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article refers to Pipers PA-28 series of two- and four-seat aircraft. For the +PA-32+. six-seat series, see the +Piper Cherokee Six+. article.
Role Civil utility aircraft
Manufacturer Piper Aircraft
Number built 32778+
+PA-28-151+., built in 1976The Piper PA-28 Cherokee is a family of light aircraft designed for flight training, air taxi and personal use, built by Piper Aircraft.
All members of the PA-28 family are all-metal, unpressurized, four-seat, single-engine piston-powered airplanes with low-mounted wings and tricycle landing gear. All PA-28 aircraft have a single door on the co-pilot side, which is entered by stepping on the wing.
The first PA-28 received its type certificate from the FAA in 1960 and the series remains in production in 2008. Current models are the Arrow, Archer III, and Warrior III.
Competition for the PA-28 series include the Cessna 172, the Grumman American AA-5 series and the Beechcraft Musketeer.
Piper has created variations within the Cherokee family by installing engines ranging from 140 to 300 hp (105-220 kW), providing turbocharging, offering fixed or retractable landing gear, fixed-pitch or constant speed propellers, and stretching the fuselage to accommodate 6 people. The larger, six-seat variant of the PA-28 is generally the PA-32; earlier versions were known as the Cherokee Six, and a PA-32 version is still in production today under the model name +Saratoga+..
Piper continued to expand the line rapidly. In 1963, the company introduced the even more powerful Cherokee 235 (PA-28-235), which competed favorably with the Cessna 182 for load-carrying capability. The Cherokee 235 featured a Lycoming O-540 engine derated to 235 horsepower (175 kW) and a longer wing which would eventually be used for the upcoming Cherokee Six. It included tip tanks having 17 gallon capacity each, bringing the total fuel capacity of the Cherokee 235 to 84 gallons.1 The aircraft had its fuselage stretched in 1973 giving much more leg room in the rear. The stabilator area was increased as well. In 1973 the name was changed from 235 to the Charger. In 1974 it was changed again to Pathfinder. Production of the Pathfinder continued until 1977. There was no 1978 model year. In 1979 the aircraft was given the Piper tapered wing and was again renamed to the Dakota.
+PA-28-140 Cherokee 140+.
PA-28-140, built 1966 In 1964, the company filled in the bottom end of the line with the Cherokee 140 (PA-28-140), which was designed for training and initially shipped with only two seats.1 One source of confusion is the fact that the PA-28-140 engine was slightly modified shortly after its introduction to produce 150 horsepower (112 kW), but kept the -140 name.
Piper Cherokee Six
In 1965, Piper developed the Piper Cherokee Six, designated the PA-32 from the PA-28. It which featured a stretched fuselage and seating for one pilot and five passengers.
+PA-28R-180+. and +PA-28R-200 Arrow+.

Piper PA-28R-201 +Cherokee Arrow IV+. with its distinctive T tail. In 1967, Piper introduced the PA-28R-180 Cherokee Arrow. This aircraft featured a constant-speed propeller and retractable landing gear and was powered by a 180 horsepower (134 kW) Lycoming O-360 engine. The engine was upgraded to 200 horsepower (149 kW) in 1969 and the designation was changed to +PA-28R-200+.. At the time the Arrow was introduced, Piper removed the Cherokee 150 and Cherokee 160 from production.
The +Arrow IV+. was re-styled with a T tail and resembled the other aircraft in the Piper line at the time.
In 1968, the cockpit was modified to replace the push-pull style engine controls with levers. In addition, a third window was added to each side, giving the fuselage the more modern look seen in current production.
+PA-28-140 Cherokee Cruiser 2+2+.
In 1971, Piper released a Cherokee 140 variant called the Cherokee Cruiser 2+2. Although the plane kept the 140 designation, it was, in fact, a 150 horsepower (110 kW) plane (112 kW), and shipped mainly as a four-seat version.
In 1973, the Cherokee 180 was named the Cherokee Challenger, and had its fuselage lengthened slightly and its wings widened, and the Cherokee 235 was named the Charger with similar airframe modifications.
In 1974, Piper changed the names again, renaming the Cruiser 2+2 (140) to simply Cruiser, the Challenger to Archer (PA-28-181), and the Charger (235) to Pathfinder.
+PA-28-151 Cherokee Warrior+.
Piper reintroduced the Cherokee 150 in 1974, renaming it the Cherokee Warrior (PA-28-151) and giving it the Archers stretched body and a new, semi-tapered wing.
+Polly Vacher+., a record-breaking UK pilot, in her +PA-28-236 Dakota+.. The aircraft was built in 1994.
In 1977, Piper stopped producing the Cruiser (140) and Pathfinder (235), but introduced a new 235 horsepower (175 kW) plane, the Dakota (PA-28-236), based on the Cherokee 235, Charger, Pathfinder models but with the new semi-tapered wing.
+PA-28-201T Turbo Dakota+.
The PA-28-201T Turbo Dakota followed the introduction of the PA-28-236 Dakota in 1979. The airframe was essentially the same as a fixed gear Arrow III and was powered by a turbo-charged Continental Motors TSIO-360-FB engine producing 200 hp (149 kW). The aircraft did not sell well and production ended in 1980.
+PA-28-161 Cherokee Warrior II+.
In 1978, Piper upgraded the Warrior to 160 horsepower (119 kW) PA-28-161, changing its name to Cherokee Warrior II. This same aircraft, now available with a glass cockpit, is available as the Warrior III, and is marketed as a training aircraft.
The PA-28 was also built under licence in Brazil as the +Embraer EMB-711 Corisco+. (PA-28R-200), +EMB-711T Corisco Turbo+. (PA-28R-200T), and the +EMB-712 Tupi+. (PA-28-181).

The company produces three PA-28 Cherokee variants: the 160 horsepower (119 kW) Warrior III (PA-28-161), the 180 horsepower (134 kW) Archer III (PA-28-181), and the 200 horsepower (149 kW) retractable Arrow (PA-28R-201).
