History of the Piper PA 34 Seneca
The Piper PA 34 Seneca is a twin-engine light aircraft produced by the American company Piper Aircraft, mainly used for personal and business aviation. The aircraft is a popular choice among those who wish to hire a small plane for short-haul flights.
It appeared in 1960 and made its first flight in 1965. This model was granted certification on 7 May 1971 and was introduced in late 1971, with almost 1000 aircraft produced in the first three years. It has become a commercial success. The aircraft is powered by a pair of Lycoming IO-360-C1E6 engines.
It has seen many improvements over the years, such as with the PA 34 200T Seneca II, the “T” designation coming from the introduction of turbocharged 200 hp Continental TSIO-360E engines, which gave the Seneca better performance at high altitudes. The most recent update of the aircraft came in 1996, with the arrival of the PA 34 220T Seneca V.
