Piper M600/SLS Gets More High Tech From This Spring From this Spring, the Piper M600/SLS is going to be more high-tech than before thanks to some additions the company is making available to owners of this model. Owners of the newest M600/SLS can look forward to some upgrades to existing G3000 software, first previewed to Piper customers at NBAA-BACE 2022 in Orlando, FL. The updated software includes enhancements to the synthetic vision system, onboard weather radar, navigation, flight planning, checklists, weight and balance calculation capabilities, and stabilized approach monitoring. One of the most significant additions is the new 3D SafeTaxi™, which expands situational awareness with an advanced 3D depiction of the ground environment, including airport markers, buildings, and other position markings. Improved taxiway routing guidance provides both graphical and textual information, supporting the pilot at even the most complex airports. Additionally, M600/SLS customers will benefit from glide range ring functionality designed to improve situational awareness in the event of an engine power loss emergency.
