Piper Aircraft Inc. is making the transition from any new aircraft in its M-Class lineup - the Meridian, Mirage and Matrix - to the new PiperJet Altaire attractive to company loyalists. The PiperJet Altaire single-engine business jet is being developed for certification and first deliveries in 2014.
"Piper created the Altaire Advance program to make it easier for our customers to move up to the PiperJet Altaire from any new single-engine M-Class aircraft," says Piper Executive Vice President Randy Groom. "Under Altaire Advance, Piper will discount the purchase price of the Altaire or defer a portion of the initial deposit required, depending on the new M-Class airplane being purchased."
For new single-engine turboprop Meridian buyers, Piper offers 0,000 off the .5 million base purchase price of the PiperJet Altaire. Buyers of new pressurized single-engine piston Mirages get ,000 off the price of a new Altaire, while buyers of unpressurized single-engine piston Matrixes can defer ,000 of the initial deposit of ,000 on a new PiperJet Altaire.
