Carenado has just announced the release of an update to their latest aircraft for X-Plane 11, the Piper PA-46 500TP Malibu Meridian G1000, bringing it to version 1.1. 

The Piper Malibu was developed as a light single-engine pressurized piston aircraft in the 80s. The Meridian is the first turboprop version of the Piper Malibu, it has been produced 526 times as of today. Its huge popularity is mainly due to its outstanding capacities and its affordable price. Equipped with a 500 horsepower Pratt and Whitney PT-6 engine, it can cruise comfortably at flight level 300 at 260 knots with 6 passengers.
