Piper Cheyenne I Corporate Turboprop (1981)
A Lot of Companies Are Already Paying For the Privilege of Owning a Corporate Turboprop. Unfortunately, They’re Still Flying Pistons.
It's no secret that the Piper Cheyenne I will fly more passengers higher, faster, farther and in considerably greater comfort and luxury than any piston powered airplane conceivably could.
What has undoubtedly escaped your attention, however, is that the total cost of owning and operating a Cheyenne I for five years is approximately $21,000 less than that of a piston-powered airplane like the Cessna 421C, assuming you fly over 100,000 miles per year. Sound crazy?
Not when you consider that the Cheyenne I, which costs only 54% more than a Cessna 421 C, offers nearly 200% greater resale value, 54% greater investment tax credit and less than one half the engine maintenance cost.
Why haven't you heard this sort of argument from any other turboprop manufacturers?
Probably because they don't dare make it. After all, when you consider that the Cheyenne I is the most economical, cost-effective turboprop you can buy (this despite its opulent finish, unsurpassed quality, and uncompromising workmanship), you'll only end up giving us your business anyway.
To make sure your flight crew gets the most out of the Cheyenne's capabilities, incidentally, they'll be trained to proficiency by Flight Safety International -- possibly the most advanced aviation training organization, in the world.
Naturally, we'd be delighted to show you the comparative data that prove all this. And we're fully confident that, once you call Mr. Thomas W. Gillespie, our Senior Vice President for Marketing and Sales, you'll agree the whole thing seems to make perfect sense.
Your only problem, we would think, lies in coming to grips with the obvious conclusion: Speeding along at over 285 mph in one of the most comfortable and luxurious air planes in the sky just happens to be the cheaper, more responsible way to go.
Somehow, we think that's a reality you can learn to live with.
More airplane for the dollar.
