JustFlight's Arrows Released 2021-08-16

JustFlight's Arrows Released

We are happy to add JustFlight's Arrow III and Turbo Arrow III/IV to the collection of aircraft available on Contrail!
Both aircraft are highly detailed and have seen very positive feedback by the community after the initial release.

The PA-28R Arrow III is a four seater, piston-engine aircraft equipped with a retractable tricycle landing gear and constant-speed propeller – an ideal aircraft for touring and instrument training. The aircraft is flown all around the world and this add-on reflects that global popularity.

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.
