 Piper Aircraft announced that exclusive factory training provider for the M600, Legacy Flight Training, has taken delivery of a Frasca M600/SLS Simulator. Training using the new type specific device began on February 1, 2021.  The flight simulator uses a Piper sourced M600 fuselage, pilot seating, sub panels, switching and flight controls which enables real world, model specific training for all M600 aircraft. The Frasca built training device features M600 type specific Garmin G3000 avionics with Piper’s HALO ™ safety system, inflight stability protection, level mode and auto throttle system. The simulator also features a multi-channel projection system with wrap around visuals creating a realistic training experience.

“Piper has always held safety at the forefront of our culture and our products,” said Ron Gunnarson, Piper Aircraft Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Support. “Piper was the first OEM to certify Autoland in a general aviation aircraft, it is fitting that we have a device that can further enhance safety by providing customers with a high fidelity, realistic training environment.”

“Having representative simulators allows pilots to achieve a higher level of knowledge, readiness and safety, than with ground and flight training alone,” said Bill Inglis, owner of Legacy Flight Training. “We continue to invest in making sure Piper owners are able to step into their new aircraft, year after year, being able to take advantage of all the benefits their Piper offers them – safely.” 

The Piper M600/SLS with HALO Safety System is the first general aviation aircraft certified with Garmin Autoland. The revolutionary system supports digital technology that safely lands the aircraft at the nearest suitable airport in the event that the pilot is incapacitated. Additionally, the Garmin G3000 avionics suite includes Auto-throttle, Autoland, Emergency Descent Mode, Electronic Stability and Protection, Surface Watch, Safe Taxi, and Flight Stream 510 all of which are designed to enhance safe operation of the aircraft. Beyond the flight deck, the 6-seat M600/SLS is powered by a Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A 600shp engine. The aircraft has a maximum cruise speed of 274 ktas/507 km/h, a max range of 1,658 nm / 2,748 km, and a standard useful load of 2,400 lbs. / 1,089 kg.
