Piper Aircraft is launching an extensive product demo tour throughout the United States, where it will showcase the newest addition to the M-Class line up, the M600 SLS with HALO Safety System including Garmin Autoland.

The M600 SLS product demo team will depart from the Piper factory in Vero Beach, Florida in early February and will visit each US Piper dealer partner over the next two months. The tour will include stops at each Piper dealer's headquarters as well as additional stops within each dealer's regional territory.

The first stop of the tour will be at Des Moines Flying Service in Iowa. The aircraft will then visit Kansas, Texas, the northeast, mid-Atlantic and southeast states followed by multiple stops through the southwest, California and the Pacific northwest. Static displays are planned at each stop, as well as demonstration flights for customers, prospects and invited guests.

“The M600 SLS greatly improves situational awareness and enhances safety with the addition of the new HALO System, which includes Garmin Autoland,” says vice president of sales, marketing and customer support Ron Gunnarson. “With this in mind, we felt compelled to provide prospective customers with an opportunity to experience the HALO Safety System and Garmin Autoland first hand, while learning more about the aircraft's new standard EXP luxury interior appointments as well as the competitive service and support package.”
