Piper Cherokee Series Aircraft Information
Designed for personal use, flight training, as well as air taxi use, the Piper PA-28 Cherokee is a light aircraft which has the capacity for one crew member and three passengers. The empty weight is 1,201 lb (544 kg) and the loaded weight is 2,150 lb (975 kg). Cruise speed is 108 kn (124 mph, 200 km/h), stall speed is 47 kn (54 mph, 87 km/h), and the Piper Cherokee should never exceed 123 kn (142 mph, 230 km/h).
Aircraft in the Piper PA-28 Cherokee family are all-metal, unpressurized, single-engine, piston-powered planes with tricycle landing gear and low-mounted wings. The Piper Cherokee has a single door on the co-pilot side, which is entered by stepping on the wing. In 1960, the first Piper PA-28 Cherokee received its type certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration. This series is still in production today.
The Cherokee 180 was named the Piper Challenger 1973. The Challenger had its fuselage lengthened slightly and its winds widened.
Variations have been created within the Piper Cherokee family by providing turbo charging, installing engines ranging from 140 to 300 hp (105-220 kW), offering retractable or fixed landing gear, fixed-pitch or constant speed propellers, and stretching the fuselage to accommodate six people. The six seat variant of the Piper PA-28 is generally known as the PA-32. Various models of the Piper Cherokee include the Piper Cherokee 140 Cruiser, Piper Cherokee 140/160, Piper Cherokee 150, PA-28-151 Cherokee Warrior, PA-28-160 Cherokee, PA-28-161 Warrior II, PA-28-161 Warrior III, Piper Cherokee 180, Piper Archer Model, Piper Archer II, Piper Archer III, Piper Turbo Dakota, Piper Cherokee 235 Pathfinder, Piper Dakota, PA-28S-160 Cherokee, PA-28S-180 Cherokee, Piper Cherokee 6/260, Piper Cherokee 6/300, PA-28R-180 Arrow, PA-28R-200 Arrow, PA-28R-200 Arrow II, PA-28R-201 Arrow III, Piper Turbo Arrow III, Piper Arrow IV, and PA-28RT-201T Turbo Arrow IV. Unless otherwise mentioned, the model number of the Piper PA-28 always refers to horsepower. Models in the Piper PA-28 series compete with the Cessna 172, the Beechcraft Musketeer, and the Grumman American AA-5 series.
In the beginning, all Piper Cherokees had a constant-chord rectangular platform wing. This wing became popularly called the Hershey Bar wing because of its resemblance to the chocolate candy bar. In 1974, Piper switched to a tapered wing with a NACA 652-415 problem and a 2-foot-longer wingspan. Both wing variants of the Piper Cherokee have an angled wing root. The takeoff distance, cruise speed and landing distance is very similar between the Piper Cherokee models of the same horsepower with varying wing types. Some of the differences that exist in later taper-wing models can be attributed to better seals and fairings rather than the varying wing designs.
Piper used their traditional flight control configuration for the Piper Cherokee family. The horizontal tail is a stabilator with an anti-servo tab. The stabilator, stabilator trim, flaps and ailerons are controlled using cables and pulleys. All Piper Cherokees use control yokes together with rudder pedals in the cockpit. The flaps are operated manually by the pilot using a Johnson bar located between the front seats. Newer models of the Piper Cherokee use a trim wheel on the floor between the front seats, behind the flap bar for stabilator trim. However, older models use an overhead crank. A brake lever is located under the pilot side of the instrument panel on all Piper Cherokee models. Differential toe brakes on the rudder pedals were optional on early Piper Cherokee models, but became standard with later models. Later Piper Cherokees use a collection of two or three control levers in a throttle quadrant, while some earlier models used controls knobs for the throttle, mixture, and propeller advance. Piper Cherokees normally include a rudder trim knob. The rudder trim knob actually controls a set of springs acting on the rudder petals instead of an exter
