Piper offers AeroMech's RVSM on M500 and M600
Opening RVSM airspace for Piper M500 and M600 products is a great opportunity for owners and operators to unleash the full capability of the aircraft and operate above weather up to FL300 with increased range.
The AeroMech RVSM STC will be available for factory deliveries, as well as being an upgrade to post production aircraft.

Piper Aircraft is now offering Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum certification as a factory option on Piper M500 and M600 turboprop aircraft. The RVSM STC was approved by AeroMech's FAA STC ODA and previously only available post-production from selected avionics facilities. With this announcement, M500/M600 customers will now be able to operate in RVSM airspace on the delivery flight home, utilising the full aircraft performance envelope.

Operating in RVSM airspace will allow M500/M600 pilots to gain fuel savings, lower their carbon footprint, increase range and fly above weather. Owners investing in RVSM can expect higher resale values and shorter time on the market when it comes time to sell or trade. The RVSM STC has been approved by the FAA, EASA (Europe), and ANAC (Brazil) with Canadian (TCCA) approval in process.

“Opening RVSM airspace for Piper M500 and M600 products is a great opportunity for our owners and operators to unleash the full capability of the aircraft and operate above weather up to FL300 with increased range. Using the AeroMech STC, we can deliver this performance upgrade prior to flyaway using Piper skilled technicians with no avionics changes,” says Piper Aircraft product marketing manager, Bryant Elliott. "We appreciate our relationship with AeroMech and its commitment to supporting RVSM on our production aircraft as well as for legacy Meridian customers worldwide.”

“AeroMech is excited Piper has chosen our solution to open additional flight levels in RVSM airspace to new M500/M600 customers,” says Dave Doucette, AeroMech vice president of business development. “We look forward to supporting RVSM factory deliveries going forward, as well as continuing to offer this performance upgrade to post production aircraft.”
