Piper PA-36 Pawnee Brave

Piper announced in 1972 a completely new version of the PA-25 Pawnee agricultural aircraft which introduced a more powerful Continental Tiara 6-285 flat-six engine of 213kW, a new cantilever wing, new safety features, filtration of the air entering the pilot's ventilated and heated cockpit, and a larger standard chemical hopper of 0.85m3 or, optionally, 1.08m3 capacity. Designated Piper PA-36 Pawnee Brave, the new model began to enter service in 1973, and in 1977 an additional version with a 224kW Avco Lycoming IO-540-K1G5 engine became available, the designations of these two aircraft then becoming PA-36 Pawnee Brave 285 and PA-36 Pawnee Brave 300. In 1978 this latter aircraft became the standard model, a new PA-36 Pawnee Brave 375 being introduced with a 280kW Avco Lycoming IO-720-D1CD flat-eight engine, and equipped with the larger of the two chemical hoppers as standard. These were to remain in production with Piper until rights for both versions of the PA-36 were acquired by WTA Inc. in 1981. This latter company was marketing this agricultural aircraft in two versions, the version with the 280kW engine now being the basic model and redesignated PA-36 New Brave 375. It was available optionally with a 298kW IO-720-D1C engine under the designation PA-36 New Brave 400.

Can someone tell if there is a way to convert to turbine the PA36-300 and if so, which would be the right one.Thanks

I owned the 285hp Tiara, as well as the 400 conversion. Thought both models were well above average in performance, but personally thought the Tiara got a bad rap, due to a little abuse from poor maintaince operators. Mine performed beautifully, and was so quiet, that I didn'[t really need a Noise-cancelling hardhat. Only one small drawback, needed 7 1 /2 degrees flaps to make a normal turn-around. Handling in the air, normal. Ground-handling outstanding. Much more stable on the ground than the Cessna. (Got a lotta' time in both).
