Some of those are pretty hard since all the differences where a change of engine without a change in the cowling.


OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Archer: fixed gear with aerodynamic fairings, 3 square side windows.
Arrow: retractable gear, 3 side windows, rearmost one rounded.
Warrior III: fixed gear, 3 square side windows

Saratoga and Malibu are a lot larger.
retractable gear, 4 side windows (square on the Saratoga, round on the Malibu).

An Arrow is a Cherokee, but a Cherokee isn't necessarily an Arrow. I'm not sure when Piper changed their A/C names from Indian to whatever else they used later, but the Cherokee lineup included everything from a 140hp. 2 seater w/2 windows up to a 300hp. 6-7 seater that could be w/ or w/out retractable gear, and 4 windows ea. side. An Arrow was 180 or 200 hp w/ 4 seats, 3 windows ea. side, retractable. The above site probably won't show anything but their new lineup. Cessna 180's and 185's are taildraggers, and have different engines (180: 230hp,185: 285hp). Both could be fitted w/up to 6 seats. You can't tell any G/A plane by whether it has wheelpants or not. They are usually only kept on if the plane NEVER lands on dirt or snow, cause they get packed or broken.
