Piper Aircraft has received the type certification of its new flagship aircraft, the Piper M700 Fury, by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, on February 29, 2024. This certification is a significant milestone for the manufacturer, coming quickly after the new aircraft's announcement on February 6. Customer deliveries will begin immediately.

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 more than 87 year history. 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.

“We are thrilled to announce the U.S. certification of the Piper M700 Fury by the FAA just a month after its announcement," says John Calcagno, president and CEO of Piper Aircraft. “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.”

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.
