Using a Stinson design acquired in 1948, Piper introduced its first production twin-engined, four-place executive aircraft in 1954.  The prototype first flew in 1952.  2,200 Apaches were produced through 1958.

In 1960, Piper upgraded the Apache with more powerful engines and a swept vertical tail.  The new aircraft was named Aztec.  Over 4,800 Aztecs were built.
