Following on from their award-winning PA-28R Arrow III, Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and C152, this highly detailed simulation of the PA-28-181 Archer III is being developed by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Archer III, G-CIFY, based at Turweston Airfield.
 
The PA-28-181 Archer III is a four-seater, piston-engine aircraft equipped with a fixed tricycle landing gear, 180hp four-cylinder engine and fixed-pitch propeller. Certified in the mid-1990s, the Archer III is one of the most recent PA-28 variants to be built, reflected in its streamlined cowling and cockpit overhead panel controls. Capable of cruising at 118 knots and with a range of nearly 500 miles, it is an ideal aircraft for touring and flight training.

The cockpit features an impressive suite of avionics for instrument training and IFR flights, with a GNS 530 GPS, GNC 255 radio, S-TEC autopilot, HSI and ADF instruments. Situational awareness is enhanced with a Traffic-Watch ATD-300 traffic awareness unit and Strike Finder stormscope.
 
The Archer III is flown all around the world and in addition to our UK research aircraft, G- CIFY, the product will feature liveries from the USA, Canada, France, Australia and Germany.
