NEWTOWN, Conn. - Piper Aircraft has launched a new version of its six-seat single-engine turboprop, the Meridian M500. The new version features a Garmin G1000 avionics suite and other improvements.

"As part of our on-going product improvement initiatives, we saw an opportunity to give our customers the latest improvements in proven avionics technology with electronic stability protection, under speed protection and automatic level mode among other improvements," said Simon Caldecott, Piper's president and CEO.

The Piper M500 is powered by the same Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A 500shp engine used on the current model. It features a maximum cruise speed of 260 knots (482 km/h) and a range of 1,000 nautical miles (1,852 km). The price of the new model is $2.26 million, only slightly above the cost of a Meridian in 2014.

Piper is forecast to deliver 416 Meridians during the next decade. It delivered an average of 31 aircraft per year from 2010-2014.
