Piper Aircraft Inc. and its recently appointed Chilean dealer, Aeroneed, are collaborating to display the M600, the company's flagship product, at the upcoming FIDAE, to be held April 3-8. This will be the first time that an M600 has been on display at an event in South America. Prior to and following FIDAE, the M600 embarks on a one month Latin America demo tour covering multiple countries.

"The M600 is the ultimate business tool and ideally suited to the Latin American region given its performance, range, and comfortable cabin. From Santiago the M600 can take you and your team non-stop to Sao Paulo, La Paz, or Lima at a fraction of typical operating costs and over $1M less than its closest competitor, said Piper's South American Sales Manager, Dan Lewis. He added, "We are looking forward to working with our network of agents and dealers as we demonstrate the capability of the M600 throughout the region."

"FIDAE is a vital and growing international aerospace event that addresses the full scope of commercial, military and business aviation interests. As such, FIDAE is the ideal business platform for Piper Aircraft and our South American dealers to showcase our product line from trainer to business aircraft," said Drew McEwen, Piper's Vice President of International and Direct Sales. "We are delighted to have our M600 aircraft on display for the first time in Chile during the 20th Anniversary of FIDAE."
