Today’s Top Pick is a 2010 Piper PA-46-350T Matrix.

Piper’s PA-46-350T Matrix traces its lineage to the early 1980s, when the company developed and launched the first PA-46 Malibu. At the time, the new aircraft was a departure for Piper and the GA industry overall. There just were not many big, pressurized piston singles available, so the Piper, which also had big-airplane features, such as an airstair door, stood out on the ramp. It remains an attractive step-up aircraft with an impressive presence today.

The Matrix variant of the PA-46 series is unpressurized, but most, including the aircraft for sale here, have supplemental oxygen systems built in and are constructed to fly high where their turbocharged engines and high aspect ratio wings can make the most of the thin air for generating higher cruising speeds. For years I have looked longingly at the generous cabins of PA-46s, which remind me of a small corporate jet, and thought about how much my family would love traveling in one.

This 2010 Piper Matrix has 1,442 hours on the airframe, engine, and propeller. The panel includes the Garmin G1000 avionics suite with synthetic vision, dual 10-inch PFDs, a 15-inch MFD, GDL69A XM Satellite Radio and Weather, dual GIA63W Nav/Com/ILS/WAAS GPS, dual GRS77 Altitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), dual GDC74A Digital Air Data Computers with Dual Probe System, GTX345R ADS-B Transponder, GFC700 Digital Autopilot with Yaw Damper, WX500 Stormscope, Honeywell KTA-870 Traffic Advisory System, and Garmin TAWS B Terrain Awareness System.

Pilots who wish to step up from a high-performance, four-place retractable to a larger, higher-performance machine with a cabin that will please their passengers should consider this 2010 Piper PA-46-350T Matrix, which is available for $679,900 on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the aircraft through FLYING Finance. For more information, email [email protected].
