  1. Piper Receives FAA Certification For HALO Equipped M600 SLS
    Piper Aircraft announced today that their flagship M600 SLS aircraft has received FAA certification for the HALO safety/autoland system. The FAA approval gives the M600 SLS distinction of being the first Garmin Autoland equipped aircraft in the world to receive certification. "We are delighted to announce the certification of the M600/SLS with the HALO Safety System by the FAA", said Simon Caldecott, Piper Aircraft President and CEO. "This is the first aircraft to be certified with one of the most significant advancements in general aviation history. As a company that has always held safety at the forefront of our culture, we are proud to be first to market with Autoland. Additionally, it is our great honor to pave the way for others to follow with this new technology."
  2. This is not an option or add-on. Every customer who purchases an M600 SLS will be assured it is equipped with the safety feature. The system includes Auto-throttle, Emergency Descent Mode, Electronic Stability and Protection, Surface Watch, Safe Taxi, Flight Stream connectivity and more. However, of greatest significance is the addition of Garmin Autoland – digital technology that safely lands the aircraft at the nearest suitable airport in the event that the pilot is incapacitated. The M600/SLS is available for purchase now through the Piper Dealer Network.
