Originally launched in cooperation with
Continental Motors at the Aero Friedrichshafen
trade show in Germany last spring, the Archer DX
has been marketed throughout Europe ever since.
With traditional leaded avgas being expensive
and difficult to find in some countries, the DX
has been readily accepted and widely acclaimed.
A Continental CD-155 compression-ignition engine
powers the aircraft, with the capacity to use
both Jet-A and diesel fuel (EN590),
independently or in any ratio combined. Initial
deliveries of diesel Archers in
are anticipated immediately.
Piper Archer DX
is powered by the
Continental CD-155 diesel engine with a Full
Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) system,
the Archer can cruise at a speed of 114 ktas /
211 km/h (at 70% power) with only 5.8 gph / 22
lph fuel burn. The Garmin G1000 avionics system
comes as standard instrumentation, providing a
great mix of low workload and high technology.
The special flight school interior, and the
aircraft overall, is well suited to stand up to
the rigors associated with flight training. The
Archer DX offers competitive operating economics
with a proven airframe that is perfect for
flight training organizations worldwide.
