The Piper Aztec is designed for passenger comfort. It offers maximum 5 seats to accommodate individual requirements (depending on total passenger and baggage weight). Often geared with extended range fuel tanks, the Aztec is ideal for non-stop down island trips. Stable handling and dependable performance afford passengers that extra margin of comfort and safety. The airplane also offers short-field operating characteristics, making it a favorite for airports with restricted runways, such as Virgin Gorda or St Barths.
