The PA-28R Turbo Arrow III and Arrow IV are four seater, turbocharged piston-engine aircraft equipped with a retractable tricycle landing gear and constant-speed propeller – ideal for touring and instrument training.
First available in 1977, the Turbo Arrow III was the first turbocharged variant of the PA-28R Arrow, retaining the conventional tail of the Arrow III and a new cowling which housed the six-cylinder turbocharged engine. The Turbo Arrow IV followed in 1979 and featured a distinctive T-tail.
The aircraft is flown all around the world and this add-on reflects that global popularity, featuring ten liveries from the USA, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Australia and the Czech Republic.

Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
Dimmable instrument, radio and dome lighting, with separate control circuits
Tablet EFB for controlling various aircraft options, and checking aircraft and flight information: - 'Cold & Dark', 'Ready for Take-off' and ‘Ready for Start’ aircraft states - Persistent aircraft states, allowing you to always return to your cockpit in the same state that you last left it - Automatic fuel tank switching for use on those long distance cross-country flights - GPS unit selection – GPS 100, GNS 430/GNS 530 and GTN 750 (requires freeware PMS-50 GTN 750) - Direction Indicator (DI) or Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) instrument options - Aircraft failures (spark plug fouling, vapour lock, oil use and battery failure) - Passenger, baggage and oil inspection door controls - Flight computer with useful information such as fuel burn, endurance, speed and wind speed/direction
Fully functional and comprehensive IFR capable avionics fit including: - KMA 20 audio selector unit - KX 170B COM 1 / NAV 1 radio - KX 175B COM 2 / NAV 2 radio - KN 62 DME unit which can display information from NAV 1, NAV 2 or its own inbuilt receiver (NAV 3) - Piper Autocontrol IIIB autopilot unit with navigation, heading and roll hold (altitude hold clickspot included) - KT 76A transponder unit - KR 85 ADF unit with ADF/ANT/BFO modes and support for fractional frequencies, e.g. 383.3 - GPS 100, GNS 430/GNS 530 and GTN 750 (requires freeware PMS-50 GTN 750) - HSI/OBS support RNAV approach indications
Fully compatible with MSFS VR mode
Yoke-mounted flight timer/clock
Independently operated left and right (standby) altimeter with mb and inHg barometric scales depending on units of measure setting
Developed using the latest MSFS standards, including intuitive and easy-to-use controls for rotary knobs, multi-position switches and levers
Engine turbocharger fixed wastegate and overboost simulation (progressive engine failure due to overboost if wastegate fails, with EFB controls for monitoring and resetting engine damage/failure)
Custom-coded fuel system including the option to have automatic switching of the fuel tanks for use on those long distance cross-country flights
Custom-coded electrical system with functional circuit breakers
Realistic landing gear system with emergency and automatic release at low airspeeds
Functioning alternate air and static source controls
Failures including spark plug fouling, limited battery life, vapour lock and more
Lighting system includes separate lighting control for instruments (via rheostat) and realistic implementation of navigation light / radio light rheostat
Functional electric trim control on yoke (requires electric trim button to be pushed)
Functional ELT which is automatically triggered above 4.6G
Many other details, such as a passenger door that automatically closes with airflow and vibrating engine exhausts!
Full support for MSFS checklists (manual and automatic/co-pilot modes)
The Just Flight Turbo Arrow III and IV feature a MSFS-native (Wwise) sound package taking full advantage of the new capabilities. Every little detail has been faithfully recreated based on high fidelity recordings from real life PA-28s.
Original Lycoming TSIO-360 engine samples
Detailed physics-based effects on engine and wind noise
Authentic audio for every switch, button, lever and electrical systems
Accurately positioned 3D sound sources (best enjoyed in VR!)
Custom crash and scraping effects
Authentic retractable gear whistle
Background panel rattle on low engine RPMs and more!
The Turbo Arrow III is supplied in the following five paint schemes:
The Turbo Arrow IV is supplied in the following five paint schemes:
OK-MAN (Czech Republic)
A PSD Paint Kit is included so you can create your own paint schemes.
The Arrow III and IV feature realistic and accurate flight dynamics based on real-world performance and handling data, and input from Arrow pilots.
A comprehensive PDF manual with panel guide and flight tutorial is included as well as an Operating Data Manual with performance data.
Differences between the Just Flight Turbo Arrow III/IV and Arrow III
The Turbo Arrow add-on includes two variants of the Arrow: the Turbo Arrow III (conventional tail) and the Turbo Arrow IV (T-tail)
The Turbo Arrows' engine cowling, which houses the turbocharged TSIO-360, gives the aircraft a more sporty look (especially with the T-tail)
Blue/grey cockpit colour scheme on the Turbo Arrow III; tan on the Turbo Arrow IV
The cleaner, less worn cockpits of the Turbo Arrows reflect private ownership (versus the flying club ownership of Arrow III)
Turbocharged engine sounds and some cockpit sounds (e.g. fuel pump)
Differences in panel configuration – fuel primer push-button, two-position (high/low) fuel pump switch, engine instruments differ (EGT gauge, temperature and pressure indicators)
Differences in flight dynamics due to heavier engine and T-tail characteristics
High altitude performance of turbocharged engine – ideal for longer range flights with higher cruise altitudes
Turbocharger overboost failure simulation, giving you something else to manage (optional, depending on maintenance option)
