When talking about general aviation aircraft, one brand immediately comes to mind: Piper Aircraft, Inc. With roots extending back almost 90 years, Piper Aircraft has continued to be a pilot favorite. The new Piper M-Class aircraft series now offers pilots a six seat single engine aircraft with all the bells and whistles.
The M-Series has been a process of evolution for Piper Aircraft, starting with the pressurized, 310 horsepower Piper Malibu in the 80s. A few years later, the turbocharged Malibu Mirage took form with a newly designed wing and 40 additional horsepower. An unpressurized, turbocharged version was also produced under the name Piper Matrix. For those looking for more power and efficiency, a turbine engine after-market conversion for the Malibu and Malibu Mirage called the JetPROP DL and DLX are available through Rocket Engineering.
The latest step in evolution of the Piper series includes improved safety and the latest in Garmin technology. Essentially an improved Mirage featuring a 350 hp Lycoming engine, the Piper M350 boasts anti-hypoxia tools and cruises at 213 knots. Building upon the Meridian line, the Piper M500 is a single engine turboprop with an updated G1000 panel, a 500hp Pratt & Whitney engine and cruises at 260 knots.
Topping off the series is the M600. The Piper M600 includes anti-hypoxia tools and 100 extra gallons of fuel, making it an excellent cross country machine with a range of 1,300 nautical miles and a service ceiling of 30,000 feet. The clean avionics panel includes a Garmin 3000 suite with two 12.1-inch PFDs and a 12.1-inch MFD. All M-series aircraft feature synthetic vision, automatic level mode, coupled go-around and underspeed protection providing not only increase safety, but peace of mind.
