The Mojave was the swansong for the pressurized models of the PA-31, produced for only about three years. The aircraft was a transition from the pressurized Chieftain version of the popular Navajo to the Cheyenne I. The Chieftain and the Mojave gave way to the production of the Cheyenne series, Piper’s most powerful twins.
