Piper Aircraft has received Flight into Known Icing (FIKI) certification from the FAA for its new flagship aircraft, the M700 Fury.

"The M700 Fury, boasting a max cruise speed of 301ktas and a max range of 1,852nm, includes some of the most advanced safety features in the industry," says president and CEO John Calcagno. "The certification of FIKI is a crucial part of the overall value proposition of the M700 Fury, as well as a key safety feature for the operator."

The FIKI system comes standard on all M700 Fury aircraft and is an electromechanical expulsion deicing system located on the tail as well as the leading edge of the wing.

International certifications for the M700 and FIKI are progressing as planned and on track for deliveries to those regions beginning in Q3, 2024.
