Safety Features

Safety Features

Safety is Piper’s foremost priority as illustrated by the extraordinary safety features available across the Piper product line. The Pilot 100i is designed specifically for efficient, effective and safe operations. The Pilot 100i is outfitted with Garmin G3X touchscreen avionics with an array of safety tools uniquely suited to flight training.


  • Garmin FliteCharts & Jeppesen Chartview
    • Remove paper from your briefing process and see your aircraft in its georeferenced position on either Garmin FliteCharts or Jeppesen Chartview on-screen chart services (separate subscription required). Simplify your planning, departure, enroute and approach workload by having the chart you need on the MFD when you need it, with a location depiction of the Pilot 100i overlaid.
  • Garmin SafeTaxi
    • Situational awareness on the ground is as important as it is in the air, and with Garmin SafeTaxi, you can display airport diagrams (for over 1,300 airports in the United States, with additional coverage in Europe and Canada) with your aircraft position georeferenced right on the Pilot 100i’s MFD.
  • Synthetic Vision (SVT)
    • See clearly and navigate safely even when the view through the cockpit windscreen is dark, foggy, hazy or solid IFR. 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.
