Welcome to the M350

The Piper M350 is the only current production pressurized piston-engine aircraft available today. It leads the piston pack with an impressive 213 ktas cruising speed, as well as the ability to cruise up to 25,000 ft in pressurized comfort. With standard dual turbochargers, owners can also expect a consistent fuel burn at any altitude keeping operating costs down.

M350 WITH THE LATEST IN GARMIN AVIONICS AND MOST ADVANCED SAFETY FEATURES

VERO BEACH, Fla., April. 14, 2015 – Piper Aircraft has introduced the M350, its newest top-of-the-line M-Class single-engine, piston, cabin class, pressurized aircraft with the latest in Garmin avionics. With most advanced safety features, along with a number of additional significant product improvements, the M350 has the most advanced cockpit of any cabin class, six-place aircraft available on the market.

“The 2015 Piper M350 comes equipped with the very latest Garmin avionics package for increased safety,” said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott. “As part of our continued focus on product improvements, we identified an opportunity to give our customers the most advanced safety features available for this class of aircraft. The addition of proven avionics technology with Electronic Stability Protection, Underspeed Protection, and automatic Level Mode were among other improvements. What’s more, a Piper M350 can now safely fly itself unassisted to lower altitudes in the rare case that the pilot is non-responsive at altitudes where oxygen is required.”

The Piper M350 comfortably seats six with club seating. It is powered by a Lycoming TIO-540-AE2A 350 horsepower engine, sports a 213 KTAS / 395 km/h max cruise speed, and has a range of 1,343 nm / 2,487 km. The aircraft comes standard with an improved Garmin G1000 avionics suite; the 2015 M350 is listed at a competitive price of $1.15 million.

Upgraded Avionics

The M350’s new Garmin G1000 avionics suite features high-resolution, dual 10-inch PFDs, and a high-resolution, 12-inch MFD. Also included is the latest Garmin Software upgrade, along with a GFC700 autopilot with an optional enhanced Autopilot Flight Control System (AFCS), which hosts a number of flight safety features:

Electronic Stability Protection (ESP)
Underspeed Protection (USP)
Coupled Go-Around
Hypoxia Recognition
Emergency Descent Mode
Pulse Oximeter
Level Mode
Autopilot Auto-Engage
Expanded Engagement Envelope
Master caution, master warning, gear position, gear warning incorporated in the G1000
Digital Pressurization (now integrated with the Garmin G1000 avionics)
Electronic Stability Protection

Electronic Stability Protection (ESP)

helps prevent the onset of stall/spins, steep spirals, and loss-of-control conditions. This passive feature discourages aircraft operation outside the desired flight envelope. ESP functions independently of the autopilot system and only takes effect when the pilot is hand-flying the aircraft with the autopilot disengaged. It works as a soft barrier to keep the Piper M350 inside the performance envelope by automatically engaging servos to slightly correct control surface positions when the aircraft exceeds one or more flight parameter – essentially encouraging it back inside safe parameters.

Underspeed Protection (USP)

Underspeed Protection (USP) is a flight director function that reacts to underspeed conditions in a way that allows the autopilot to remain engaged but prevents the airplane from stalling, while the PFD annunciates when active.

With stall protections developed as part of the USP system, coupled go-arounds are possible without disengaging the autopilot. With this feature, the autopilot will remain engaged and fly the missed approach. If power is not added, the USP system will maintain a speed just above stall warning, adjusting airplane pitch attitude as required.

Coupled Go-Around

With stall protections developed as part of the USP system, coupled go-arounds are possible without disengaging the autopilot. With this feature, the autopilot remains engaged and will fly the missed approach. If power is not added, the USP system will maintain a speed just above stall warning, adjusting airplane pitch attitude as required. Pilot workload is now significantly reduced when flying a missed approach, further enhancing aircraft safety.

Hypoxia Recognition System with Automatic Descent Mode

The Hypoxia Recognition System detects pilot incapacitation as a result of hypoxia by monitoring pilot interaction with the PFD, MFD, and Autopilot Controller at altitudes above cabin 14,900 feet with the autopilot engaged. If no interaction is detected within a specified time period, this system will engage Automatic Descent Mode and bring the aircraft to a lower altitude in an effort to allow recovery from hypoxia. The M350 can safely fly itself to lower altitudes in the unlikely case the pilot becomes unresponsive.

Pulse Oximeter

The M350 features a panel-mounted pulse oximeter. The pilot’s heart rate and blood oxygen saturation can easily be measured and displayed on the MFD, along with continuous monitoring of carbon monoxide levels in the cabin.Hypoxia recognition and automated altitude step-down recovery in the case of an unresponsive pilot FMS User Interface changes: Simplified navigation in the flight plan page

Automatic Level Mode (Blue Button)

The M350 also features as standard equipment an autopilot Level Mode function that, when triggered, will return the aircraft to a wings level attitude with zero vertical speed. Upon activation, Level Mode will automatically engage the flight director and autopilot functions to return the aircraft to straight and level flight. Activating Level Mode cancels all armed and active modes leaving all other autopilot modes available while the Level Mode is activated by simply pressing the associated mode control button.

Additional Improvements

Other major improvements for the Meridian M350 includes a new digital pressurization which fully integrates with G1000, the Aspen EFD-1000 standby instrument, electroluminescent placards in cockpit, GTX 33 Extended Squitter Transponder, a centrally located single audio panel, USB charging ports in both the cabin and the cockpit, and an optional GTS 825 Traffic Advisory System, which coupled with the GTX 33ES gives the aircraft ADS-B In and Out functionality. M350 aircraft is also offered with the optional Garmin GSR-56 Global Satellite Datalink Iridium Satellite Transceiver for added connectivity (phone call and text capability) with business taking place on the ground.
