Searched and was surprised that no one posted this, but Piper unveiled their first ever jet aircraft today at NBAA 06 in Orlando... Production starts in 2010, but I wasn't able to get more info... Will get more tomorrow...

Cessna also unveiled 3 new aircraft cabins... CJ4, a new XLS, and an awesome new widebody cabin aircraft... Here are a couple pics of the Citation Widebody... notice the cabin height in relation to the people inside.

Not a big fan of Pipers but this Jet is very intrigueing. Single engine in the tail from what it looks like? Very interesting...

Awesome to see Cessna going full strength into even more BJ markets.  Smile
I wonder if Cessna would ever build a High wing Citation? (since they are a high wing manufacturer for pistons)

LOVE the widebody!

Let's not forget that Piper sells the HA-420 as well, so their dealer/service network now has two jet aircraft on offer.

If it's efficient, then it'll be great. The 6XT is still my favorite though.

Hmm single engine jet? I am not so sure.

While I am not too technically inclined when it comes to the mechanics of aviation, jets being heavier that a single engine prop, what happens with engine failure?

Looks very intriguing though....

Give the reliability of jet engines I guess Piper is willing to take the risk with a single. Big jets are heavy but keeping that in mind an A330 has a better engine out glide ratio than a C172.

Yeah i have heard of the A330s, in fact isn't true that a A330 landed quite successfully without engine power?

I am sure Piper knows what they are doing... just my little concern.

BTW gotta love a.net. I went to Pipers site just check out more on this jet, and the only thing is that it will be unveiled at the NBAA show. Guess what, we (a.net) already been there done that.. Big grin

Is that with full fuel? Because if it is, then it's at least 200 lbs more than many other small jets, which makes it very attractive for people wanting to take a good load with full fuel. 800 pounds is enough for nearly 4 people and their bags. Other light jets have a full fuel payload of about 600 pounds, which is about 3 people.

If the opposite is true, people plus fuel cannot exceed 800 pounds, then this jet is not very good IMO.

Ask an F-16 pilot.

Or a Pilatus pilot, for that matter (OK, a turboprob, but turbine powered nonetheless). Seems OK for them.

Is a jet engine really heavier than a piston?

Interesting at any rate! Does the Piper count as one of those "VLJs"?

The Piper's going to focus heavily on owner-flown jets -- the shortest overall step up from the Meridian. So with one engine it will cost considerably less, probably be a bit slower (but easier to handle and easier to insure with less experienced pilots). So the 800 pounds with full fuel isn't bad -- it's roughly a 4 seater, same as the Malibu and Meridian.

As far as LBS per SHP is concerned, a turboprop is much lighter than a piston. Jets are (and most modern turboprops) are much more aerodynamicly clean than single pistons. The reltaively dirty DHC-8-100 is supposed to be able to get 2.5 nm per 1,000 ft with both feathered (I think thats around 15:1). A swept wing might not do as well (not sure), but those wings look fairly straight.

Piper's teaser website reportedly suggests that the jet would be called "FREEDOM".

It is believed the Piper Jet will be powered by one Williams FJ44 engine. The Cessna CJ4 will use Williams' FJ44-4 with 3,600 lbs of thrust.

With the advances in composite technology as used on the B787, I wonder if Raytheon could leave behind their unpleasant experience with the "2000" and be persuaded again to come up with a single-jet "STARSHIP" using Williams FJ33 and with broadly similar specs as the Cirrus. Aren't attempts to divest of RAC still fruitless?
