The Piper PA-31 Navajo, introduced in 1967 is a family of twin-engined civil utility aircrafts, with the target market in corporate and general aviation. The initial PA-31 was designed upon the request of Company founder William T. Piper in 1962, and was partially based on the Twin Comanche, featuring two Lycoming TIO-540-A turbocharged engines. Two extra cabin windows were added, allowed by the extended fuselage and moving the engines further forward. Inspired by the success of the PA-31, Piper had started producing further variants, one of which was the PA-31-350 Navajo Chieftain introduced in 1972. The Chieftain was an even more powerful model, using two counter-rotating Lycoming TIO-540-J2BD (-and LTIO-540) engines, this was a significant modification to help eliminate critical engine issues. The aircraft was an elongated version of its predecessing Navajo B, allowing for a total of 10 passanger seats.
