FSX – Piper PA-28-151 Cherokee WARRIOR. FSX Piper PA-28-151 Cherokee WARRIOR is based on the existing (warrior8.zip) By Rien Cornelissen done in FS2002/FS2004. Historically, the Piper Cherokee Warrior (150 HP) represents the leap from “Hershey Bar” wings to the tappered wings for all the future low-wing Cherokee lines that are still flying today. The Warrior was built during the 1974 to 1977 time fuel prices were high and the Lycoming O-320-E3D was designed to run on low-octane (80) leaded fuel. This was also a departure from a history of high-octane, high-powered four-cylinder engines. I wanted to bring the Rien Cornelissen airplane to life in FSX as a representative of that time which closes the gap from the constant-cord wings to the tapped wings, speed fairings and the vertical fin updates along with the extended stabiltor lengths seen on almost all the PA-28 series from 1978 on. I tired to stay true to the Rien Cornelissen airplane from FS2002/FS2004 as much as I could, including his instrument panel. I made up two repaints (textures) that show how they looked back then, one is still flying today and the other from the Piper Standard Catalog image that imspired me to try this project.
