Will Visit Four States Between AirVenture And The AOPA Summit
EAA AirVenture 2012 will be the launch site for a multi-state demonstration tour for the Piper Seneca V, a twin-engine turbocharged aircraft currently on display at Wittman Regional Airport. From here, it will head out on a six-state tour of the Midwest and Far West United States involving Piper's aircraft dealer organization with stops at the Reno National Championship Air Races Air Races and Show and AOPA's Summit.
"For well under a million dollars, the Seneca V gives you a turbocharged twin that has higher payload, carries more fuel, delivers better performance and efficiency, has a wider, longer cabin, and a single-engine ceiling that is higher than twins which cost $400,000 more," said Piper Head of Global Sales and Business Development Drew McEwen.
After leaving Oshkosh, the Seneca will travel to De Moines IA, in August, then Kansas City, KS and Reno, NV, in September, will conclude the tour with stops in Boise, ID and Palm Springs, CA in October, with that last stop being the AOPA Summit in Palm Springs.
Standard equipped list price with dual Garmin G600 avionics suite is $935,000. The airplane is powered by two Continental Turbocharged TSIO-360-RB engines generating 220 hp each. The configuration of multiple entry and baggage doors with the comfort of a cabin-class interior makes the Piper Seneca V the perfect business tool. The Seneca V's empty weight is 3,397-pounds. At sea level, the Seneca takes off over a 50-foot obstacle in 1,707 feet. At 5,000 feet and 25 degrees Celsius, the Seneca only requires 2,435 feet. Maximum payload is 1,082 pounds.
