Piper will also have the Seminole and Pilot 100i trainer class aircraft on static display at the show.

“It’s an exciting opportunity for us to kick off the year with our new M700 FURY painted in this special edition scheme designed specifically for the launch. For fun, we’ve also included matching schemes on our M350 and Archer LX factory demonstrators,” stated Ron Gunnarson, Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Customer Support at Piper Aircraft. “We look forward to seeing attendees come out to view our newest flagship, hear more about the updates we have as a company, and just talk airplanes.”

In addition to the Sun ‘n Fun aircraft lineup, Piper is proud to announce the latest system upgrade from Garmin for the M350, the only high-performance, pressurized piston aircraft available today. This latest system update was introduced on the M600 in 2023 and was certified on the new M700 FURY. It includes Garmin PlaneSync™ technology that provides wireless connectivity to your aircraft. This now enables the remote capability for charts and database updates as well as the ability to see key information about your aircraft from your mobile device. This upgraded software system highlights the new 3D SafeTaxi, expanding ground situational awareness with an advanced 3D depiction of the ground environment, including airport markers, buildings, and other position markings. In addition, this new software has enhancements for SVT, weather radar, navigation, flight planning, checklists, weight and balance calculation capabilities and more.
