After the PiperJet was announced at NBAA 2006, Piper was besieged with unsolicited offers by officials from more than 60 cities to move production of the single-engine jet to their communities. This spring Piper whittled down the site selection to three cities–Vero Beach, Fla., where the manufacturer is currently located; Oklahoma City; and Albuquerque, N.M.–and a decision is expected soon. The company is doing final reviews of the incentive packages, which “come in different forms–grants, tax incentives.
According to company president and CEO James Bass Piper “would like to make a decision as soon as possible.”
