The second pillar of the Piper Aircraft Company and the older brother of the Piper Archer. This aircraft initially introduced in 1960 made privatised civilian flying affordable and competed directly with the Cessna 172. The Piper Warrior underwent revised designs and upgrades which culminated into the model dominantly featured at Basair Aviation College – the Piper Warrior III. Compared to early designs, the Piper Warrior III features, a four seat cabin layout, Lycoming 320, 4 cylinder horizontally opposed, carburettor engine – producing 160HP which on average produces a cruise speed of 115 knots or 212 kph. It features the same fuel amount and fuel tanks as the Piper Archer – although with its reduced engine power its range is slightly shorter with 480 nautical mile or 890km of range. It features the same baggage space of 100kg and modern avionics as the Piper Archer. If you are private or full time student pilot the Piper Warrior is a cost effective solution to the Piper Archer.
