ANN was the first to bring you news of the new Piper Matrix -- a
cabin-class, unpressurized six-seater based on the Malibu Mirage.
Designed to be an economical alternative to the Mirage, while still
offering a luxury cabin in a high performance airplane, the
350-horsepower Matrix cruises at 215 knots, with a range of over
1,345 nautical miles when flown at its maximum operating altitude
of 25,000 feet. Down low, where supplemental oxygen isn't
necessary, the Matrix checks in at 188 knots and is good for 831
nautical miles at 12,000 feet.
