OSHKOSH, WI., JULY 25, 2022 – Piper Aircraft has announced that the a M600 Minimum Equipment List (MEL) has gained FAA approval. This is a significant milestone for the aircraft, as this now qualifies the venerable M600 to be operated under FAA part 135 charter operations.
Since its first delivery in 2016, the Piper M600 and now M600 SLS has become known as one of the most efficient and technologically advanced single engine turbo prop aircraft on the market today. With the HALO safety system, including standard features like Collier-award winning Garmin Autoland, and the reliability and efficiency of the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A engine, the M600 SLS continues the legacy of excellence that Piper Aircraft is now known for.
“The addition an approved MEL for the M600 is a testament to the diverse mission profiles this aircraft can accommodate and an important step forward in expanding the operational capability of the airplane,” stated Ron Gunnarson, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Support at Piper Aircraft.
