Piper Aircraft Inc. will begin delivering the first of five new Piper Arrow pilot training aircraft to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The airplanes will serve Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach, Florida campus.
“The five Piper Arrows join the Embry-Riddle learning fleet of more than 60 pilot training aircraft,” said Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University President and CEO Dr. John P. Johnson. “The single-engine Piper Arrow fits nicely into our training fleet, as it provides a seamless transition for students to more complex training aircraft.”
“Piper Aircraft is thrilled that the prestigious and leading aviation education institution Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has selected our company to provide this new fleet of five Piper Arrow pilot training aircraft,” said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott. “Embry-Riddle adeptly prepares students for productive aviation careers.”
