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.

KELOWNA, British Columbia - The glamour and allure of seeing the world's first flying car being delivered to a client is garnering a lot of attention. Currently Google is seeing over 135,000 monthly searches for the term "Flying Car" in North America alone.

But in that space, the differentiation between dream and reality is very subtle. That is why CEO of PAL-V, Robert Dingemanse is so excited that Maxim magazine recently selected PAL-V as the most likely company to deliver a "real" flying car.

"Clearly it is impressive that a magazine with a readership of close to 9 million people would recognize the work we have done to create a flying car that actually conforms to existing regulations and is safe to fly," said Dingemanse.

While many companies focus on forward leaning technologies that requires new regulations, PAL-V has created and flown a flying car that is finding solid appeal in the North American market place.

Vice President of Sales in North America, Mark Jennings-Bates, is also excited about the attention the company is getting. "When you have a prestigious brand like Top Gear referring to our vehicle as the world's first plausible flying car and now Maxim men's magazine giving us a thumbs up for the world's first real flying car, it means a lot. They are main street brands, not scientific journals. They look at the product and the market differently, it is good for our team to get that recognition," said Jennings-Bates.

PAL-V has been the quietest player in the market in regard to their developments but you can expect to be hearing significant updates from them in the next several months as they commence manufacturing of their PAL-V Limited Edition model which is only available to the first 90 buyers in the world 25 of which have been allocated to North America.
