Ready, Set, Fly Program Featured
“The Ferrari meet is a great occasion to feature Piper programs and airplanes before a contingent of people with an appreciation for styling and performance and the wherewithal to become aircraft owners who may not yet be pilots,” said Piper Executive Vice President Randy Groom. “This is an opportunity to tell them about our Ready, Set, Fly program that helps new Archer LX owners learn to fly safely and efficiently in their own aircraft at our Vero Beach, Fla., facilities.”
Piper’s new program is a convenient and concentrated roughly three-week standardized training course conducted by a dedicated, professional instructor. The custom program, created specifically for new Piper Archer LX owners, enables them to go from zero time to completion of their private pilot training safely, effectively and efficiently. The program also emphasizes Piper’s continuing commitment to the light aircraft segment and to the critical general aviation mission of attracting new pilots to the industry.
