Hands down, it’s the best twin-engine trainer available anywhere. The Seminole exceeds expectations with its reliability, durability and value. Generations of pilots have trained in the Seminole, but this Seminole is generations ahead with its tried-and-true construction, power plants, handling capabilities, and standard Garmin G1000® NXi flight deck. Sure, there are other twin-engine trainers, but nothing competes with the Seminole.

Safety is Piper’s foremost priority as illustrated by the extraordinary safety features available across the Piper product line, and trainers are no exception. The Seminole is designed specifically for efficient, comfortable and safe multi-engine flight training. The Seminole is outfitted with the latest Garmin 1000® NXi avionics suite and the most thoughtful, intuitive and inspired engineering in general aviation.
Garmin SafeTaxi: Situational awareness on the ground is as important as it is in the air, and with Garmin SafeTaxi, students 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 your Seminole’s MFD.
Optional Enhanced Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS – additional equipment required): AFCS Includes Electronic Stability Protection (ESP), Automatic Level Mode (Blue Button), Underspeed Protection (USP) and Coupled Go-Around.
Coupled Go-Around: Your workload is simplified when flying approaches and conducting a go-around in your Seminole because you can keep the autopilot engaged during a coupled go-around and the aircraft will maintain a speed above stall warning, automatically adjusting pitch attitude as required.
Automatic Level Mode: If you ever find yourself experiencing spatial disorientation in your Seminole, 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 Seminole 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.
Electronic Stability Protection (ESP): Keeping you safe in stable flight when hand-flying your Seminole, the ESP system functions independently of the GFC700 autopilot and applies control force toward stable flight whenever pitch or roll deviations exceed recommended limits, or when overspeed or underspeed conditions are about to occur. ESP will also automatically activate the GFC700 autopilot if engaged for too long.
Optional Jeppesen Chartview: Remove paper from your student’s briefing process and they can see their aircraft in its georeferenced position on Jeppesen Chartview on-screen chart services (separate subscription required). Simplify flight planning, departure, enroute and approach workload by having the chart the student needs on the MFD when they need it, with a location depiction of the Seminole overlaid.
Optional TAWS-B Traffic Advisory System: Your students are often focused on procedures and learning the intricacies of multi-engine operations, so keeping an eye on terrain and ground based obstacles might not be front of mind. The optional Seminole TAWS-B system pulls aircraft position, speed and direction data from GPS and, along with the aircraft’s altitude and configuration information, compares them to a database of Earth’s terrain and man-made obstacles, issuing audible warnings.
Optional Vision 1000 Appareo Flight Monitoring System: Monitor flights and record data including attitude data (pitch, roll, yaw), WAAS GPS (latitude, longitude, ground speed, vertical speed, GPS altitude), cockpit imaging, ambient audio and intercom system audio for crew and ATC communications.
Piper’s engineering and design teams lead the industry in designing aircraft for the owner-flown class of aircraft. Ergonomic controls, seats built for comfort, avionics placement and design, coupled with built-in durability and components chosen for reliability. Your students and instructors will appreciate the quality design and care in their Seminole.
The Piper Seminole exterior styling utilizes an Axalta Imron polyurethane white paint base and choice of two fuselage vinyl trim stripes. Registration numbers and logos are color coordinated. Custom paint schemes are quoted upon request.
Cabin Above Class
Each Piper trainer interior is designed with maximum comfort and durability in mind. The ergonomic seating keeps both the students and instructors relaxed, making their ability to focus on the flight and lesson easier. Heavy-duty vinyl and wear-resistant leathers are hand-fitted to the seats and side-walls, proven to withstand repetitive use. Air conditioning is available as an option.
