Piper Cheyenne III

The Piper PA-42 Cheyenne, a turboprop aircraft introduced in 1979 by Piper Aircraft, aimed to directly compete with the Beechcraft King Air series. Development was based on the preceding PA-31T Cheyenne’s design, leading to the christening of the new aircraft as the Piper Cheyenne III. Simultaneously, Piper aspired to create a light business jet to rival the Cessna Citation I, opting to upgrade the engines to twin Honeywell TPE331-14s, achieving 1,000 hp. Unveiled to the public in 1984 as the P-42-1000, also known as Cheyenne IV, the aircraft underwent several name changes, initially as Cheyenne 400 due to surpassing speeds of 400 mph. It later became the 400LS, referencing Lear Siegler, the owner of Piper Aircraft at the time. Notably, the PA-42 Cheyenne 400LS remains the largest aircraft manufactured by Piper to date.
