Piper Aircraft has been awarded approval from Brazil's National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) for its M600/SLS HALO safety system with Garmin Autoland and stand-alone auto-throttle.

“The Brazilian certification is a key milestone for our flagship M600/SLS aircraft," says vice president of sales, marketing and customer support Ron Gunnarson. "The Piper M600/SLS was the first aircraft to achieve FAA certification with the Garmin Autoland system and subsequent international validations will continue. Additionally, the aircraft features the latest software and capabilities offered by Garmin for the G3000 avionics suite, Garmin's PlaneSync technology and competitive range, payload and safety features along with outstanding operating economics.
