I thought I would put this out there even though I dont expect to see one available. Looking for a family plane and the Arrow III is perfect for our size right now. We would prefer 2000 or newer but I believe I could get the wife to go for 1990 or newer. If you have one for sale please let me know. I watch TAP/Barnstormers/Controller so I see the ones that pop up on there. We would like to keep the hours under 7k if possible.

Thanks I left them a message. I am guessing it will be 300k+ but I hope its something affordable.

EDIT: Vero beach....I wonder if its one of the ERAU birds that got auctioned off.

Strictly speaking, the Arrow III was produced in 1977 and 1978 only. It was replaced by the Arrow IV (with a T-tail) in 1979.

After Piper emerged from bankruptcy they began producing straight-tail Arrows again, but just called it an Arrow with no numeric suffix. These are subtly different in that the electrical system is 24V instead of 12V, the gear hydraulics have slightly different pressures, and probably several other small changes.

I am aware but even VREF lists the current PA28R-201 as an Arrow III. Right or not its what the industry seems to use to refer to the newer models as well.
