Piper M500

Cabin Class | Single Engine | Pressurized Turboprop


Sleek and sexy without sacrificing safety, the M500 is the profile of perfection. This single-engine turboprop, with the latest in Garmin Safety Technology, remains a study in priorities. Six-place seating and a pressurized cabin comfortably accommodate passengers, prioritizing precious assets, while the 500 SHP Pratt & Whitney PT6-42A turbine satisfies the most discerning pilot by providing adrenaline-inducing, powerful performance and unmatched reliability. Like its Meridian predecessors before, the M500 is a celebrated crowd-pleaser and still the best value in its class.

Interior Design


Comfort, Stepped Up

As you step up the airstair door entrance into the spacious M500, you will be greeted with cabin-class seats featuring hand-selected leather, tanned in Italy. These natural leather seats offer not only luxury but flexibility. With adjustable backrests and the ability to fold down, even more cabin space can be created for your passengers or luggage. Passengers have easy access to the interior baggage compartment and amenities such as the two 110-volt outlets. Situated around the cabin, you can also find the standard individual cup holders, reading lights, air vents, and a built-in work table. LED accent strip lighting fills the cabin in warm light. All of these attributes work collectively to make any business or personal flight as comfortable as possible for pilots and passengers alike.

    Larry Johnson

    Piper Regional Aircraft Sales Manager, Texas
    Larry Johnson
    Piper Regional Aircraft Sales Manager, Texas

    A native Texan, Larry spent countless hours looking up at the skies as aircraft and clouds passed overhead. Inspired at an early age by John Glenn, the first U.S. Astronaut to orbit the Earth, Larry became excited by the future of aviation and space travel and set in motion the steps required to fly and become an astronaut and reach his goal of flight. Joining the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) at age fourteen, Larry passionately served in the CAP through his teenage years. At the age of sixteen he was selected for a solo flight training program offered by the CAP and upon completion of that program, he won an appointment to Private Pilot training the very next year and enthusiastically completed it before graduating from High School.

    Upon graduation, Larry enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served as an electronics technician. Upon completion of his military duty, Larry entered the private sector as an electronic equipment technician and later became a salesperson for home security systems for a major company in Houston, TX. In this role, he found the opportunity to sell professionally to be enjoyable one and it would influence his career from then on as he developed a passion for professional sales. After several years of success and professional training in security system sales, Larry made the move to combine his two passions, selling and flying, as part of a new direction in his career.

    Seeking an opportunity to sell within the aviation industry, Larry appealed to aircraft companies in the Houston area in the late 1970’s, getting his start in 1977 when hired by Houston Piper. Larry found solid success selling new Piper Aircraft in his “niche” for the company and also sold for Montgomery County Piper in Conroe, TX over the next five years. When the “Oil Bust” of the early 1980’s brought the U.S. Economy to a low-point in 1982, Larry found an opportunity within the turmoil as an independent consultant for banks and finance companies, applying his specialized expertise in aviation and aircraft sales to work out distressed aircraft loans for clients. The unique opportunity afforded Larry the ability to significantly broaden his aviation knowledge base to cover aircraft ranging from small private aircraft up to large corporate jets.

    In 1996 Larry was recruited by Cutter Aviation to join the aircraft sales team in Texas for both new and pre-owned aircraft. Becoming the Piper Aircraft Regional Sales Manager for Texas Piper in the Northern part of Texas that year, he relocated to Dallas, TX and continues in that position today. Larry is based in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area at Cutter Aviation Dallas-Addison (ADS).

    Larry is approaching 9,000 hours of total flight time that encompasses a wide range of flight conditions and a sizable variety of aircraft. Larry is the father of four children and is a proud grandfather of five wonderful grandchildren. He now lives in the North Dallas suburb of McKinney, TX, very close to Cutter Aviation’s Service, Sales and Charter facility at Addison Municipal Airport (ADS) and the growing population of current and potential pilots, individual entrepreneurs, startups and established businesses that are beginning to embrace the benefits of General Aviation.
