Flying Smart becomes Piper dealer for France and Belgium
One pilot who earned his wings in a small Piper twenty years ago is now leading Flying Smart, and has taken on the Piper distributorship for France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Monaco.

Piper Aircraft has appointed Flying Smart as its exclusive dealer for France, Belgium, Luxemburg and Monaco. Headquartered at London Biggin Hill airport in the UK and with additional bases in France and Belgium, Flying Smart will support Piper from its sales office located at Le Touquet airport in France.

David Fabry, CEO of Flying Smart, lives in Belgium and has several years of experience focused on aircraft sales within the European market. "Twenty years ago, I learned to fly in a Piper Arrow. Today, I am honoured to have the opportunity to represent Piper Aircraft." Fabry says. "This agreement provides Flying Smart with the opportunity to promote Piper's diverse product range throughout our territory as well as communicate the value proposition and benefits that its aircraft offer."

"Flying Smart has the experience and presence throughout France and its neighbouring countries to become a dominant player in the sales of new Piper aircraft," says Piper vice president of sales, marketing and customer support, Ron Gunnarson. "We are delighted to add Flying Smart to our global dealer network. The company's reputation, knowledgeable personnel and strategic locations within France and Belgium provide an ideal foundation for growing sales of new Piper airplanes in this important region."
