VERO BEACH, FLA. – Piper Aircraft has announced that the warranty for all M600 aircraft has been increased from five years / 1,000 flight hours to five years / 1,500 flight hours, effective immediately. After three years of deliveries, nearly 100 aircraft in service and over 21,000 fleet hours, the data gathered indicates that aircraft utilization and stage lengths are higher than originally anticipated. The warranty increase is retroactive and includes all 2016 through 2019 fielded and factory new M600s.
“When the M600 was introduced, we offered a warranty program that reflected our commitment to our customers and confidence in the aircraft. That commitment and confidence continues today as we identified an opportunity to increase our standard factory warranty based on M600 owners’ direct feedback and the aircraft’s stellar demonstrated performance,” said Ron Gunnarson, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Support. “Simply put, the M600 is delivering on its core value proposition, unprecedented range/payload, combined with best-in-class acquisition and operating costs.”
