Piper Aircraft, Inc. has obtained type validation of the M600 from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation of Mexico (DGAC). This marks the first approval of the M600 in the Central and South American region.

“M600 validation in Mexico is exciting news for Piper and our prospective customers in that region,” said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott. “The M600 is ideally suited to the Central American region with its expanded range, payload and speed. The aircraft is ideally suited to multiple mission profiles and offers the added advantage of Garmin G3000 avionics as well as state of the art safety features. We are delighted to serve this market and are looking forward to expanding our growing list of customers within the country of Mexico.”

Application for validation was filed shortly after receipt of the type certificate from the FAA. The expedient response from the Mexican DGAC paves the way for M600 sales and deliveries in 2017.

The M600, the most advanced and capable aircraft in Piper’s M-class line up, seats six and is powered by Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A turboprop engine flat rated at 600 SHP. The aircraft has a maximum speed of 274 ktas / 507 km/h at maximum available power settings and has a max range of 1,484 nm / 2,748 km at intermediate cruise settings. The M600 features the most sophisticated general aviation avionics suite available from Garmin. The Garmin G3000 offers industry-leading intuitiveness and powerful avionics capabilities. Innovative pilot interface design allows for easy and efficient flight deck management, increasing safety margins and reducing pilot workload. Ergonomically crafted for the pilot, control of radios, audio and intercom channels, transponder codes, charts, mapping, flight plan entry and system set up have been greatly simplified with the Garmin GTC 570 touchscreen controller. The dual GTC 570s provide a centralized point of access for the majority of all avionics tuning, selection and data inputs. The M600 has enhanced safety features including Emergency Descent Mode, Electronic Stability Protection, Level Model and Underspeed / Overspeed Protection.
