“M600 validation in Canada is exciting news for Piper and our prospective customers in that region,” said Piper president and CEO Simon Caldecott. “We have seen quite a bit of interest from Canadian owner/operators given the expanded range, payload and speed that the M600 offers. The added safety proposition provided by the M600 equipped with Garmin G3000 avionics is further expanding enthusiasm for this state-of the art product.”

Aviation Unlimited, Piper’s independent dealer in Canada, is pleased with the recent approval and intends to deliver its first M600 in the very near future. “Canadian certification of the Piper M600 comes in response to the needs and wants of our clients regarding increased speed, range, payload, and system redesigns,” notes Solly Capula, president of Aviation Unlimited. “Piper has successfully addressed a segment of the market currently unserved in general aviation and at a price point significantly below that of our competitors. The M600’s added capability will appeal to both flight departments and private owners alike. We’re proud to stand along Piper’s side and applaud the management team for producing a result that has far exceeded expectations. We look forward to continuing our 33 year relationship with Piper as Canada’s exclusive dealer.”
