Piper M700 FURY

Piper Aircraft, Inc. announced today the type certification of its new flagship aircraft, the Piper M700 FURY, by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, achieved on February 29, 2024.

With a maximum cruise speed of 301 knots and a maximum range of 1,424 nm, the M700 FURY is the fastest single engine aircraft in Piper’s 87+ year history.

John Calcagno, President & CEO of Piper Aircraft said: “We are thrilled to announce the U.S. certification of the Piper M700 FURY by the FAA just a month after its announcement.

“And there’s more to come. The FURY is just the first step in a new generation of our M-Class product line, so watch this space, as Piper’s M-Class will be expanding both above and below what we currently offer today.”

This cabin-class turboprop aircraft is equipped with Pratt & Whitney’s PT6A-52 engine generating 700 shaft horsepower and the latest version of Garmin’s G3000 cockpit, including Garmin’s Emergency Autoland as part of Piper’s HALO safety system.

The M700 FURY international validations for Canada (TCCA), Europe (EASA), the UK (CAA) and Brazil (ANAC) are on track to be completed in the second half of 2024, with customer deliveries in those regions before the end of the year.
