for There is a red version and a blue version. both work very well. To install, unzip the ZIP file into the main subfolder of FS2004 (where the FS9.EXE file resides). In that way, the custom gauges will be placed automatically in the correct subfolder. Special thanks to Rien Cornelissen who was the original designer of the plane itself, and to Chuck Dome, who was the inspiration for the panel design and layout ideas. Presented by Dave Meccariello.

Editorial

One of the biggest factors that comes to mind whenever I jump into a Piper aircraft is that I tend to find that they all seem incredibly similar. Well, whilst I found that this was much the same as anything that I came across on the side of the Piper, it was something that I felt quite specifically drawn to. Its unique nature and its enjoyable style meant that I could quite easily buy into the format of the aircraft without having to sit and guess too much.

Added to the fact that this package comes with just about everything you could possibly need to make it fly correctly, and it can be a very enjoyable jaunt into the dated if still enjoyable world of FS2004. The design and style of the plane itself has been very meticulously attended to, ensuring that it picks up even the most miniscule of details along the way.

The whole design is made up to ensure that you have something that really represents its real-life self without having to guess too much, but this isn’t to say that the designers have let go of all the things that make the aircraft unique in its own right.

It also come with some rather awesome panel changes that really impressed me – the custom gauges and extras in this file can be a bit of an irritating to get to work as they have to be installed manually, but they are very impressive when you get them going. The whole feeling of what you are doing in the Arrow cockpit, though, was very simple to get the hang of once you get to grips with where everything is. If you are used to any other brand of Piper, though, you should find this a cakewalk to get used to

I haven’t yet tried it in FS9 but I’m informed it’s more or less identical, so if you wish to mess around with it in there you easily could. I do know, though, that it’s one of the best PA-28 Arrow packages that I’ve used for FS2004. It’s attentive, friendly and truly effective at selling the message and the format of the real thing whilst ensure that you never feel as if you are messing around with something that isn’t authentic and true to the real thing. Just because it’s fun to fly does not mean it’s easy, trust me!

The smoldering ruins of my many crashes is testament to that – once you get used to how it flies, though, it can be a godsend. It’s so balanced and easy to take to the skies with that I rarely use anything else now when I’m on FS2004 – if I just want to make a short flight to pass the time or to see something specific that I’ve installed, I’ll tend to hop into the cockpit of the Piper PA-28 Arrow.

It’s got style and quality in abundance, alongside always offering you an easy way to get yourself well and truly introduced to the Piper series once and for all.

A good start, but needs some work to be like a arrow.
