Charter a Piper Cheyenne

The Piper Cheyenne is a turboprop corporate aircraft, based on the popular Navajo and Chieftain piston twins, with many variants throughout its history. The more recent versions of the aircraft hold six to eight passengers. Cabin seating is typically arranged in a four-seat club with three additional seats available.

Originally, the Piper Cheyenne was an upgraded version of the pressurized Navajo, equipped with two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-28 turboprop engines. Refinements were made to the Cheyenne I, including more power at altitude, redesigned cowlings, and updated interior, resulting in the Cheyenne IA.

The PA-31T-1 or PT-31T Cheyenne II was powered by 500shp Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-II turboprop engines. This version was improved again with two 620shp Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-28 turboprop engines. The stretched PA-31T-2-620XL Cheyenne IIXL is two feet longer, with an extra cabin window on the left side, an increased max takeoff weight, and 750shp Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-135 engines.

The PA-42 Cheyennes are larger developments of the earlier PA-31T Cheyenne I and II. The PA-42-720 Cheyenne III was about 3 feet longer than the Cheyenne II, and was powered by 720shp PT6A-41 turboshaft engines, and introduced a T-tail, the most significant change to the series.

The IIIA replaced the Cheyenne III and is similar in appearance but has PT6A-61 engines with an additional axial compressor, which carries that same horsepower to a higher altitude. The IIIA also features an improved air conditioning system and increased passenger head-room for greater passenger comfort, as well as more reliable fuel control units.

Finally, the PA-42-1000 Cheyenne IV - later the Cheyenne 400LS, and then Cheyenne 400 - was higher powered and significantly faster with powerful 1650shp Garrett TPE331-14 turboprops (later TPE331-14-801). This aircraft was renamed to signify its status as Piper's luxury flagship and its top speed, and it was also the largest aircraft ever made by Piper. The Cheyenne 400 was designed to compete with smaller fanjets, with a roomier cabin and significantly lower fuel consumption, especially at lower altitudes.
