The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has approved Piper’s M600/SLS HALO safety system, which uses the Garmin Autoland technology. Piper will officially hand over the first European-registered M600/SLS equipped with this technology around the middle of 2021.  

The company is also planning a comprehensive European demonstration tour for the M600/SLS this summer, assuming that restrictions put in place due to the pandemic are relaxed.
