Safety Features

Safety Features

Safety is Piper’s foremost priority as illustrated by the extraordinary safety features available across the Piper product line. The Archer® DLX is designed specifically for efficient, luxurious, comfortable, and safe personal flying. The DLX is outfitted with the latest Garmin 1000 ® NXi avionics and the most thoughtful, intuitive and inspired engineering in general aviation.


Optional Enhanced Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS – additional equipment required)

  • Electronic Stability Protection (ESP): Keeping you safe in stable flight when hand-flying your Archer® DLX, the ESP system functions independently of the GFC700 autopilot and applies control force toward stable flight whenever pitch or roll deviations exceed recommend limits, or when overspeed or underspeed conditions are about to occur. ESP will also automatically activate the GFC700 autopilot if engaged for too long.
  • Automatic Level Mode (Blue Button): If you ever find yourself experiencing spatial disorientation in your Archer® DLX, just push the blue Automatic Level Mode button and the GFC700 autopilot will engage and return your aircraft to straight-and-level flight.
  • Underspeed Protection (USP): Your Archer® DLX will recognize when underspeed conditions are about to occur and cause an inadvertent stall, and will make the appropriate adjustments to the controls to rectify the situation.
  • Coupled Go-Around: Your workload is simplified when flying approaches and conducting a go-around in your Archer® DLX, because you can keep the autopilot engaged during a coupled go-around. The aircraft will maintain a speed above stall warning and pitch attitude will automatically adjust as required.
