Piper Aircraft Inc. has unveild Altaire Advance, a program designed to make transitioning from any of the company’s M-Class lineup — the Meridian, Mirage and Matrix — to the new PiperJet Altaire.
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 $100,000 off the $2.5 million base purchase price of the PiperJet Altaire. Buyers of new pressurized single-engine piston Mirages get $50,000 off the price of a new Altaire, while buyers of unpressurized single-engine piston Matrixes can defer $25,000 of the initial deposit of $75,000 on a new PiperJet Altaire.
Piper will escrow the initial deposit until first flight. Subsequent deposits are tied to first flight of the PiperJet Altaire conforming flight test article and nine months prior to first delivery or type certification, Groom adds. First deliveries of the single-engine business jet are expected in 2014.
