“We’re familiar with Textron as an authorized CPC and extending this relationship to include Pipistrel really cements the success of our existing partnership,” adds Troy Wheeler, president, Lanier Flight Center. “For 20 years in this industry and many accomplishments in the air, our most lasting influence will be our connection to many within the aviation community, including business aviation. We look forward to supporting Pipistrel customers across an important region that is helping to drive the future of aviation.”
The partnership expands on Pipistrel’s existing distribution network, which was boosted earlier this year with the appointment of Lincoln Park Aviation (LPA) as Pipistrel’s distributor for 15 US states in the northeast.
