The Latest From Piper…. The 301KT M700 Fury

Despite AOPA Trying To Take Over Aspects Of The Announcement, The M700 Is An Intriguing Next Step Piper Aircraft has added a new model to its PA46 line — the M700 FURY—a single-engine, 700 shaft horsepower, cabin-class turboprop. Reportedly the next step in expanding their M-Class series, the M700 is powered by the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-52 engine, allowing for a maximum cruise speed of 301 ktas with a max range of 1,149 nm (at max cruise speed, 1,424 nm at normal cruise speed) while maintaining a ‘Basic Med compliant’ 6,000- pound MGTOW limit. At 301 knots, the M700 is the fastest production bird they’ve ever built and the second-fastest model of all time. Notwithstanding the late and oft-lamented PiperJet program, only the mighty Piper Cheyenne 400LS turbine twin is faster.
