Piper Aircraft has increased the warranty for all M600 aircraft from five years/1,000 flight hours to five years/1,500 flight hours.
The change follows three years of deliveries of the M600 single-engine turboprop. There are nearly 100 aircraft in service which have clocked up a total of more than 21,000 flight hours. Data suggests the aircraft are being flown more and for longer than originally anticipated.
The warranty increase is retroactive and includes all 2016 to 2019 M600s.
“When the M600 was introduced, we offered a warranty programme that reflected our commitment to our customers and confidence in the aircraft,” said Ron Gunnarson of Piper customer support.
“We identified an opportunity to increase our standard, factory warranty based on M600 owners’ direct feedback.”
