Canada Grants TCCA Certification to Piper M600/SLS HALO System

Safety Goes International

Transport Canada’s Civil Aviation (TCCA) authority has granted approval for the HALO safety system feature of Piper Aircraft’s M600/SLS model.

Piper vice-president of sales, marketing, and customer support Ron Gunnarson stated: “The certification of HALO in Canada is an important accomplishment for M600 owners, Piper and our Canadian dealer, Aviation Unlimited. It is our mission to bring the latest and greatest technology in our aircraft to customers worldwide.”

Owners of M600/SLS aircraft already operating in Canada may avail themselves of the HALO safety system’s full suite of features, to include Autoland and stand-alone auto-throttle, via installation of a simple kit.

Solly Capua, president of Aviation Unlimited, Canada’s authorized Piper Aircraft dealer, set forth: “We are thrilled to have the certification of HALO completed in Canada and to offer our customers the promised piece of mind that comes with the Autoland system.”

Piper Aircraft was the first aircraft OEM to certify the GNS 430 GPS/NAV/COM system and, more recently, the Collier award-winning Autoland technology.  

Piper’s G3000-equipped M600/SLS aircraft is available with a suite of connected aircraft management capabilities enabled by PlaneSync. These include a 4G LTE Cellular and Wi-Fi datalink system that streamlines pre and post-flight tasks. By virtue of PlaneSync and Garmin’s Pilot application, M600-SLS owners can, in part, remotely check key aircraft and flight planning information, including fuel-quantity, aircraft location, oil temperature, battery voltage, and current METAR at the aircraft’s location. What’s more, PlaneSync technology automatically and wirelessly downloads databases while the host aircraft is powered down and the owner is away—thereby eliminating the need to manually update aviation databases.

The latest M600/SLS model features, also, a synthetic vision system, weather radar, and stabilized approach monitoring. Among the enhancements with which Piper has provisioned the M600/SLS is the new 3D SafeTaxi system, which expands situational awareness by dint of an advanced 3D depiction of the host aircraft’s ground environment, including airport markers, buildings, and other position markings. The system’s improved taxiway routing guidance provides pilots both graphical and textual information, enhancing positional and situational awareness at even the most complex airports. Additionally, M600/SLS customers will benefit from glide range ring functionality designed to improve situational awareness in the unlikely event of engine power loss.

The Piper M600/SLS with the HALO Safety System is the first general aviation aircraft certified with Garmin Autoland—a revolutionary system that supports digital technology that safely lands the aircraft at the nearest suitable airport in the event the pilot is incapacitated. Additionally, the G3000 avionics suite in current-production M600/SLS aircraft includes auto throttle, Autoland, Emergency Descent Mode, Electronic Stability Protection, Surface Watch, and SafeTaxi, all of which are designed to enhance safe operation of the aircraft. Beyond the flight deck, the six-seat M600/SLS is powered by a single, six-hundred shaft-horsepower Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42A engine. The aircraft boasts a swift maximum cruise speed of 274-knots, a maximum range of 1,658-nautical-miles, and a standard useful load of 2,400-pounds.
