The M600, the most advanced and capable aircraft in Piper’s M-class line up, seats six and is powered by a Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A turbo prop engine flat rated at 600 SHP. The aircraft has a maximum speed of 274 ktas / 507 km/h at maximum available power settings and has a max range of 1,484 nm / 2,748 km at intermediate cruise settings. The M600 features the most sophisticated general aviation avionics suite available from Garmin. The Garmin G3000 offers industry leading intuitiveness and powerful avionics capabilities. Innovative pilot interface design allows for easy and efficient flight deck management; increasing safety margins and reducing pilot workload.
Ergonomically crafted for the pilot, control of radios, audio and intercom channels, transponder codes, charts, mapping, flight plan entry and system set up have been greatly simplified with the Garmin GTC 570 touchscreen controller. The dual GTC 570s provide a centralized point of access for the majority of all avionics tuning, selection and data inputs. The M600 has enhanced safety features including Emergency Descent Mode, Electronic Stability Protection, Level Mode and Underspeed / Overspeed Protection.
The aesthetics, ergonomics and technologies of the new Piper M600 aircraft redefine comfort and convenience. The M600 interior features newly styled seats which have been optimized for comfort, as well as enhanced side panels with improved passenger interface. Additionally three new color palettes have thoughtfully been created with the customer in mind. A comprehensive survey process helped identify the features and attributes that would be most appreciated by both pilots and customers including USB charging ports, executive folding tables, and folding seats.
The M600 features the pinnacle of pilot and passenger peace of mind: Level Mode, a function that, when triggered, will return the aircraft to a wings level attitude with zero vertical speed. Upon activation, Level Mode will automatically engage the flight director and autopilot functions to return the aircraft to straight and level flight. By simply pressing the blue button, Level Mode is activated and cancels all armed and active modes, without impeding other autopilot modes available. This ingenious additional safety measure provides further reassurance for pilot and passengers in the circumstantial case it would be required.
