Initially the PA-28 was built as the Cherokee with a constant chord wing to minimise manufacturing costs and was a highly successful light aeroplane with clubs and flying schools. The later development of the Cherokee, the Warrior has a different wing shape with the leading and trailing edges of the outer panels having a pronounced taper. This gives the Warrior a longer wingspan than the Cherokee and, thus, a higher aspect ratio (the proportion of the wingspan and the wing chord). In general, a higher aspect ratio contributes to better climb and cruise performance because of lower induced drag.
