Piper M500

Overview

The M500 cabin layout is configured to seat four or five passengers comfortably in a pressurized environment. Cabin dimensions are 12.3ft in length, 4.1ft in width and 3.9ft in height. A rear airstair-style entry door is aft of the port wing. The primary benefit of the turbine-powered Meridian 500T over its predecessor the piston-powered Mirage, is additional speed with a high-speed cruise of 262 kts. The Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A turboprop engine is generously flat-rated with 500shp available for takeoff at sea level to +55 degrees C.
