It's easy to imagine what will happen to this aircraft when THE engine fails in flight

A visitor from - posted Wed February 12, 2014:
Is that the highest altitude this aircraft could fly at?

A visitor from Sweden posted Wed September 18, 2013:
Interesting aircraft and story behind it. I also noticed the large horizontal tail plane. Would it be to compensate for the engine being above CoG when thrust is applied?

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 5, 2013:
Nice photo, fills the frame nicely.

Interesting that the engineers did not choose an "S-duct" for the engine, like the ones used on 727s and L-1011s.

Strange-looking aircraft, but I like it. T.B.

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 24, 2013:
Sorry to hear Piper pulled the plug on this absolutely beautiful aircraft. Hopefully the prototypes will at least be visible at airshows. And not to mention that the photograph is fantastic as well! Many thanks for posting. Marc.

A visitor from - posted Sun March 24, 2013:
Look how large the horizontal stabilizer is. Also, the rudder sits up even higher than it has to, causing induced roll. Is that the the correct way to say it? So either this aircraft is a handful to fly or it has fly by wire. Beautiful bird and a great effort. A+ for originality.

I love this aircraft

Interesting propulsion, I like this plane, congratulations for capture ! Petru Dimoff

As of Oct 26th 2011, piper pulled the plug on the jet program. this jet will be in the scrap pile soon. piper as a company will probably meet the same fate soon too.

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 14, 2011:
I've heard about this Piper before, but this is the first photo I've seen. A rather odd looking design. I'd be curious what the minimum landing and take-off distances are...

Nice one! Is it still doing test flights? I saw it a lot in 2009 in KVRB. Hope its on the final track!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat November 5, 2011:
Square shaped windows didn't look great at this aircraft.

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 5, 2011:
Beautiful aircraft. i want one!

A visitor from - posted Sat November 5, 2011:
You have to ask yourself the question "Why!"....
It just doesn't look right at all....

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 5, 2011:
Looks like someone has converted a V-1 into a biz jet

I will like to fly this bird, im sure it will be nice...!

Vee One ...

I think the engine position and designation could be more cute.

A visitor from - posted Thu January 20, 2011:
Does anyone else look at this airplane and wonder, "Where's the rest of it?"

A visitor from - posted Thu January 20, 2011:
That engine puts a LOT of weight above the center of gravity. Could be a roll-over problem during bouncing landings. Sorry I forgot, nobody is ever going to bounce one of these in.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Wed December 15, 2010:
Great photo, but hideous airplane. This looks like something out of a children's coloring book.

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue December 14, 2010:
I really think is a good aircraft, but not that sure with its wing desing, it could be waaay better...!

This must be a MMD-11

I know these "microjets" are all the rage these days, but every time I see one of these, I want to ask, "Where's the rest of the airplane?"

A visitor from Germany posted Thu April 15, 2010:
Have seen prettier aircraft in my life, but many Piper Chayennes with the main airstairdoor not fitting closely as it apears here again.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun September 20, 2009:
Great catch! Nice lighting too. From looking at this aircraft there's not really too many places to put that single 'mini' fan and still make it easy to work on. On that note however, having the engine where it is only makes me wonder if it's as much of a PITA to work on as the DC-10's #2 was. Then again, where else would you put that engine?

A visitor from - posted Sun September 20, 2009:
Yeah... BUT DC-10 was a beautiful aircraft..This one really...doesn't look good

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Sun September 20, 2009:
Baby DC-10 :)

A visitor from - posted Sun September 20, 2009:
What an ugly aircraft

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 19, 2009:
A most interestng aircraft! I've heard of it, but this is the first photo I've seen. I do have to say however - the watermark detracts from the overcall qaulity and could have been left off the photo...

A visitor from - posted Sat September 19, 2009:
Someone was bored

A visitor from Germany posted Sat September 19, 2009:
The aircraft is definately not my type, but very nice pic though. 5*

I don't know why, the the name 'PiperJet' just made me laugh!
