Piper Brings Powerful Single Engine Aircraft Line To NBAA Convention

By Daniel Baxter

October 12, 2010 – Piper Aircraft will display the broadest and strongest single engine product line in the aviation industry at the National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA) 63rd Annual Meeting and Convention Scheduled Oct. 19-21 in Atlanta, Georgia.

NBAA2010 will feature Exhibits at the magnificent Georgia World Congress Center, a Static Display of Aircraft on DeKalb Peachtree Airport, over 100 Education Sessions and Maintenance and Operations Sessions (M&Os), and nearly 25,000 business aviation professionals who are interested in seeing and learning about all that is new in the world of business aviation.

"We are pleased to bring our strong single-engine aircraft to NBAA, because in these tough economic times every airplane in Piper's broad product line is a cost effective alternative to higher priced twins," said Piper CEO Geoffrey Berger.


Piper will bring a mockup of its new single-engine PiperJet business aircraft featuring a larger and improved cabin and sporting a new name that will be announced on the first day of the industry’s leading business aviation event. In addition, the company will display its M-Class single-engine turboprop and piston-powered aircraft. The company will have both the PiperJet and Meridian mockups on display in the Georgia World Congress Center. Also on static display at Atlanta’s DeKalb Peachtree Airport will be the Piper Meridian, Piper Mirage and Piper Matrix.

The PiperJet is Piper Aircraft’s comfortable and efficient single-engine entry in the very light jet market. It offers comfortable seating for up to seven individuals in an expanded and commodious cabin. The company will provide a PiperJet program update for prospects, customers and the media at NBAA 10 a.m. October 19 in the Piper booth #1247.

The Piper Meridian, the most cost effective turboprop in its class, is a single-engine pressurized turboprop, powered by a Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A engine generating 500 shp and featuring six passenger seats with club seating. It flies at 260 ktas max cruise with a 1,000 nautical mile range.

The Piper Mirage is a single-engine piston-powered pressurized aircraft powered by a Lycoming TIO-540-AE2A engine producing 350hp. It offers six seats and club seating with a 213 ktas max cruise and a 1,343 nm range at long-range cruise. The Mirage is the only single-engine, cabin class, pressurized, piston aircraft on the market today.


The Piper Matrix is a single-engine aircraft powered by Lycoming TIO-540-AE2A piston engine producing 350hp. It has six seats and club seating with a 213 ktas max cruise and a range of 1,343 nm at long range cruise.  The Matrix is the ideal step-up aircraft for customers seeking a cabin class, piston powered aircraft.

Piper Aircraft Inc. is headquartered in Vero Beach, Fla. A global force in aviation, Piper offers nine efficient models of single-engine and twin-engine trainer, personal and business aircraft.  Piper Aircraft designs, manufactures, sells and supports the strongest and broadest single-engine product line in the industry, from high-performance pistons to turboprops to the world’s most fuel-efficient seven-person business jet, the PiperJet. With economical acquisition and operating costs, Piper airplanes deliver the best values available today and into the future. Piper is a member of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association.
