Piper Jet for SaleFor sale Piper Jet
Piper Meridian developed the hull of the Piperjet based on the Piper Meridian turbo prop. Piper's new owner, Imprimis, found a bug in this redesign that led to a rev without directly related to the meridian. Geoffrey Berger, CEO of Piper: "We wanted to offer our jet clients an even more spacious jet with a scaleable look, thus smoothing the way for a next generation range of highly capable commercial aircraft.
Altaire is conceived for single-pilot operations so that one person can take the front seat. Behind the passengers were 20 cbm ( 570 litres ) of luggage compartment and another 20 cbm ( 570 litres ) of warmed but pressureless room in the nostrils of the plane. Altaire would have been driven by the Williams International FJ44-3AP.
It uses a "passive vectorized thruster design", which contributes to compensating for the aircraft's inclination when performance is improved by the relatively high rear mount of the prop. The Piper estimate that this motor would bring the Altaire to a cruising height of 11,000 ft (35,000 m) and a cruising rate of 320 knots.
A non-stop cruising distance of 1,200 to 1,300 nautical miles (2,200 to 2,400 km) was anticipated for the airplane. Expectations were that the plane would be sold for approximately $2.6 million, which is serially outfitted. The Piper estimate of floating costs is around $730 per incident.
