Flying recently had the chance to fly Piper's new version of the Meridian turboprop, the M600, over Vero Beach, Florida.

Featuring a clean-sheet wing and interior, power, range and payload improvements over previous PA-46s, the M600 might even be considered a less expensive and more economic alternative to the Daher TBM 930.

Check out the interior and exterior improvements, as well as some gorgeous air-to-air shots, in the photos below.
