I found this picture in an article about constant speed propellers, but there was no reference to the type of aircraft. The Flickr account that first posted the image doesn't exist anymore. I did some research myself, I thought it could be a Cessna or a Beechcraft, but I don't know much about it and none of the models I found was a perfect match.

Small single-engine low wing airplane

That’s a Piper PA-28R Arrow. Most likely an PA-28R-201 Arrow III, by the looks of it.

  • $\begingroup$ It looks exactly like the Arrow III that I sometimes fly, except this one has cowl latches and a tail beacon. $\endgroup$ – JScarry Apr 15 at 20:37
  • $\begingroup$ Are there any specific features that are characteristic of that particular model? $\endgroup$ – RedGrittyBrick Apr 17 at 21:58
  • $\begingroup$ Chiefly the Arrow III has the tapered wing as opposed to the Hershey bar wings of the older Arrow I/II aircraft. The III also holds 72gal usable fuel as opposed to the 48gal useable of the Arrow I/II. $\endgroup$ – Carlo Felicione Apr 17 at 23:57
