Piper Aircraft Company General Information

The performance information is based on an airplane flown at maximum gross weight under standard sea level atmospheric conditions and based on the latest data available at the time of publication approval.

Actual performance depends on pilot techniques and other factors.

It is the responsibility of the pilot to determine that all operations are conducted within approved limits of design gross weight, center of gravity and in accordance with the FAA-Approved Airplane Flight Manual which is the only official source of operating parameters and performance information.

Piper Aircraft Corporation reserves the right to make changes in specifications, materials, equipment or prices at any time without prior notice or to discontinue models as required.
