EASA has awarded a type cer­tifi­cate for the Piper M350. “The M350 is the only cur­rent pro­duc­tion pres­surised pis­ton-engine air­craft on the mar­ket, mak­ing [EASA ap­proval] an im­por­tant achieve­ment,” said Si­mon Calde­cott, Piper’s Pres­i­dent and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer.

The M350 seats six and is pow­ered by a 350hp Ly­coming TIO-540-AE2A. Max­i­mum cruis­ing speed is 213kt TAS at up to 25,000ft. Equipped with Garmin 1000 avion­ics with dual 10.4 inch PFDS and a high-resolution 12.4 inch MFD, the M350 fea­tures elec­tronic sta­bil­ity and un­der­speed pro­tec­tion, cou­pled go-around, au­to­matic level, and an emer­gency de­cent mode that au­to­mat­i­cally de­scends the air­craft to lower lev­els in the case of pilot in­ca­pac­i­ta­tion at al­ti­tudes where oxy­gen is re­quired. List price (2016) is $1,155,500.
