VERO BEACH, Fla. - Piper Aircraft, Inc. has been awarded approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), for the Piper M500, clearing the way for the aircraft to enter into service on the European register.

"EASA certification is an important milestone allowing us to kick off a major sales campaign to bring the M500 to the European market," said Simon Caldecott, President and CEO of Piper Aircraft.

The five-place M500 features the latest advances in Garmin G1000 technology, with industry leading safety features unique to this class of aircraft. Electronic Stability Protection, Underspeed Protection, Coupled Go-Round, Synthetic Vision Technology, and Automatic Level Mode are also featured for consumers seeking the safest aircraft possible, without sacrificing speed and power. GFC 700 remains standard, as well.

Other major improvements for the M500 include the Aspen EFD-1000 standby instrument, electroluminescent placards in the cockpit, GTX 33 Extended Squitter Transponder, a centrally located single audio panel, dual USB charging ports, and an optional GTS 825 Traffic Advisory System, which coupled with the GTX 33ES gives the aircraft ADS-B In and Out functionality.

The six-place M500 is powered by a Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A 500shp engine, sports a 260 knot (482 kmh) max cruise speed and has a range of 1,000 nautical miles (1,852 km). Equipped with an improved Garmin G1000 avionics suite, the 2016 M500 is listed at a competitive price of $1.99 million.
