Safety Features

Safety Features

Safety is Piper’s foremost priority as illustrated by the extraordinary safety features available across the Piper product line. The M500 is designed for efficient, comfortable and safe flight. Equipped with the latest Garmin G1000® NXi avionics suite, the M500 provides the pilot incomparable situational awareness. Its robust engineering design has stood the test of time in some of the most demanding flight environments worldwide.

  • Synthetic Vision (SVT): See clearly and navigate safely even when the view through the cockpit windscreen is dark, foggy, hazy or solid IMC. SVT provides a 3D graphical depiction with color-coded landscape identifying rising terrain and hazards, pathways in the sky, traffic, terminal procedures, ILS or BGPS/WAAS vertical approaches, and more.
  • Coupled Go-Around: Your workload is simplified when flying approaches and conducting a go-around in your M500, 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.
  • Automatic Level Mode (Blue Button): If you ever find yourself experiencing spatial disorientation in your M500, just push the blue Automatic Level Mode button and the GFC 700 autopilot will engage and return your aircraft to straight-and-level flight.
  • Electronic Stability Protection (ESP): Keeping you safe in stable flight when hand-flying your M500, the ESP system functions independently of the GFC 700 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.
  • Underspeed Protection (USP): Your M500 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.
