Vero Beach, Fla., April 4, 2017 – Piper Aircraft announced today the availability of a personalization program exclusively available on the new Piper M600. The package, named Expression or EXP, enables customers to have greater involvement in the design of the interior for their new Piper M600 aircraft.

Also included are choices for embroidered or embossed logos, customized threshold and cockpit plates as well as personalized customer logos if requested.
For the exterior, customers have a choice of predetermined or newly developed paint schemes. The newly developed paint schemes are exclusively available on the M600 EXP and include 4 custom design options with the ability for the customer to select paint colors from an extensive list of choices. Piper also offers personalized EXP branding / badges.
Beyond both the interior and exterior features, Piper has teamed up with Tumi luggage to provide a custom baggage set that is designed to match the interior trim color selected for the aircraft. Each customer will receive two, light weight, polycarbonate luggage pieces to use with their M600 EXP aircraft.
Purchase of the EXP package for the M600 provides customers with the opportunity to travel to the Piper factory in Vero Beach where they can work one-on-one with a design consultant. During their visit to Vero Beach, the customer will be treated to a behind the scenes look at the construction of their aircraft, meet the craftspeople that design and build the aircraft, as well as experience the new level of service that Piper is developing.
“Many of our customers have asked us for a way to put their personal touch on their aircraft – even beyond the interior packages currently available. In working with our dealers and customers we identified ways to further improve the interior while giving customers the ability to express their individuality,” said Ron Gunnarson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Piper Aircraft. “Customers can now work directly with our most senior designers to create an aircraft as unique and individual as they are.”
