Now available from FSD International is the Piper Navajo Panther. Over 2500 Navajos are in use today, often as feeder aircraft for shorter flights. The Coleman Panther version features upgraded props, wingtips and nacelles for better performance. To learn more about FSD's latest release click on Read More.

The Piper Navajo is sometimes called "the new DC-3". When anyone thinks of a compact propeller plane, the odds are ten to one that this will be a Piper airplane. Tens of thousands of these planes have already left the plant and are in use all over the world. Over 2500 Navajos are currently in service today. With its comfortable and adjustable leather seats with foldaway tables in a light modern decor, the Navajo has its niche as a feeder aircraft perfect for shorter flights.

It offers room for up to eight passengers. Its big panoramic windows provide a fantastic view. It does not have a pressurized cabin, and as a result, it flies below 10,000 feet (3 km), making it possible for the passenger to see the world below in every detail.

FSD has modeled the Navajo with a Colemill Panther conversion. The Colemill Panther conversion is distinguished by its four blade "Q-Tip" propellers, "Zip-Tip" winglets, and redesigned nacelles. But the sleek looks are just a bonus. The Colemill Panther features outstanding performance as well, with an increase in climb rate that is significant, and an eight to twelve knot increase in cruise speed.

The Panther's quiet, smooth ride is provided by the four blade props with a synchrophaser and the "Zip-Tip" winglets. The props reduce noise levels and vibration and the winglets improve flight stability - especially in turns and turbulence. The winglets also contribute to the Panther's great performance by providing additional lift for shorter takeoff runs. They also shorten landing rolls because with the additional lift approaches can be flown slower.

All of these enhancements make the Colemill Panther Navajo a truly exceptional aircraft with remarkable performance, so good, in fact, that Colemill Panther Navajos hold several world records for speed and time to climb.
