Piper Aircraft recently rolled out the 500th pressurized single-engine turboprop M-Class Meridian to SouthEast Piper for delivery to the aircraft’s new Florida-based owner.
“The milestone delivery of the 500th Piper Meridian, since first delivery in the year 2000, emphasizes its enduring value proposition even during recent periods of economic uncertainty around the world,” said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott. “Single-engine Piper turboprops are growing in popularity as replacements for less economical twin-engine jets and turboprops.”
Flightline Group/SouthEast Piper Chairman Paul “Mac” Langston said, “The Meridian is very popular with aircraft owners and operators in the southeastern U.S. due to its flexibility, utility and performance for the dollar. Our customers buy and fly the Meridian because it has versatile takeoff, landing and climb capabilities through the extreme summer conditions in the southeast and, of course, its speed, comfort, and competitive price make it ideal for both business and personal missions. The SouthEast Piper team is proud to be selling and delivering the 500th Piper Meridian and in Piper’s 75th and Flightline’s 30th anniversary year.”
SouthEast Piper, a Flightline Group Company, represents the entire line of Piper aircraft across the southeastern states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee, through sales offices in Tallahassee and Vero Beach, Fla., and 11 service facilities located across the southeastern U.S.
