Why was Piper's turbojet Meridian not listed in this list? I designed the fuel system with one major goal: To eliminate the fuel selector, and end crashes due to fuel starvation with fuel still available in the fuel tanks. The system also maintains lateral fuel mass to 25 pounds max! As a former FAA DER (FAR23 and 25) it amazes me this feature has not been mandated by the FAA - especially single-engine aircraft.

Piper has dropped this project and, AFIK, the PiperJet/Altaire is now dead, no other company having expressed serious interest in acquiring the rights.

The aircraft shown above is a proof-of-concept aircraft only,but has flown at 350 knots in the test program.
The production version will have a rounder, bigger fuselage and is known as the Piperjet Altaire.

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
