Piper Navajo Series Aircraft Information
Designed and built by Piper Aircraft the Piper Navajo is a family of cabin-class, twin-engine aircraft. The Navajo has the capacity for 1-2 crew members and 5-7 passengers. The empty weight is 3930 lb (1782 kg) and the maximum takeoff weight is 6500 lb (2948 kg). Cruise speed is 207 knots (238 mph, 383 km/h), stall speed is 63.5 knots (73 mph, 118 km/h), and maximum speed is 227 knots (261 mph, 420 km/h). The rate of climb is 1445 ft/min (7.3 m/s).
Built from 1967 to 1984, variant models include the Piper Navajo model, PA-31-300 Navajo, PA-31 Navajo B, Piper Navajo CR, Piper P-Navajo, PA-31-325 Navajo, Piper Navajo Chieftan, Piper Navajo Mojave, PA-31-350T1020, PA-31T3, PA-31-353, T1050, EMB 820C, Neiva Caraja, and Colemill Panther. Powered by two 310 hp Lycoming TIO-540-A turbocharged engines, the PA-31, was a low-wing monoplane with a conventional tail. Two cabin windows were added to each side of the fuselage and the engines moved further forward.
The only model in the series not to have turbocharged engines, the PA-31-300, is powered by 300 hp Lycoming IO-540-M1A5 engines driving two-bladed propellers. Certified in late 1969, the PA-31P Pressurized Navajo, was Piper's first pressurized aircraft. Compared to earlier models the PA-31P had a longer nose, fewer and smaller windows, 25 US gallon fuel tanks in the engine nacelles and a one-piece airstair cabin entry door instead of the split pair of doors on the unpressurized models. The aircraft was powered by 425 hp Lycoming TIGO-541-E engines. Introduced in 1971, the Navajo B featured air conditioning, a third door next to the cabin entry doors to facilitate the loading of baggage, increased baggage spaced achieved by the addition of storage lockers in the rear part of the extended nacelles, and an optional separate door for the pilot to enter the cockpit.
The Piper Chieftan was a stretched version of the Navajo B with more powerful engines and counter-rotating propellers to prevent critical engine handing problems. The Chieftain was fitted with variants of the 350hp Lycoming TIO-540. The PA-31-325 Navajo C/R was developed in 1974 using a Navajo B as the basis. The Navajo C/R had lower-power 325 hp counter-rotating engines. The Navajo C model was released in 1975.
In 1981, the PA-31-350T1020 was optimized for and marketed to the commuter airline market. Compared to the Chieftain the T1020 had reduced fuel and baggage capacity. The second aircraft in the T1000 family was the T1040 (PA-31T3) model. The aircraft was a hybrid, featuring the T's fuselage with the nose and tail of the PA-31T1 Cheyenne I. The T1040 was powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-11 turboprop engines.
The PA-31P-350 Mojave was the last member of the PA-31 family to enter production. The Mojave was a hybrid. The aircraft was basically a piston-engine version of the Cheyenne. The Navajo family is a popular choice with air charter companies and small feeder airlines, as well as private individuals and companies.
