Piper Aircraft Inc. will display the broadest and strongest single-engine product line in the aviation industry at the National Business Aviation Association’s 63rd Annual Meeting and Convention Scheduled Oct. 19-21 in Atlanta, Ga. 
"We are pleased to bring our strong single-engine aircraft to NBAA, because in these tough economic times every airplane in Piper's broad product line is a cost effective alternative to higher priced twins," said Piper CEO Geoffrey Berger.
Piper will bring a mockup of its new single-engine PiperJet business aircraft featuring a larger and improved cabin and sporting a new name that will be announced on the first day of the industry’s leading business aviation event.  In addition, the company will display its M-Class single-engine turboprop and piston-powered aircraft.
The company will have both the PiperJet and Meridian mockups on display in the Georgia World Congress Center. . Also on static display at Atlanta’s DeKalb Peachtree Airport will be the Piper Meridian, Piper Mirage, Piper Matrix and PiperJet.
The PiperJet is Piper Aircraft’s comfortable and efficient single-engine entry in the very light jet market. It offers comfortable seating for up to seven individuals in an expanded and commodious cabin. The company will provide a PiperJet program update for prospects, customers and the media at NBAA 10 a.m. Oct. 19 in the Piper booth #1247.
