Muncie Aviation Company, an authorised aircraft sales dealer for Daher TBM and Piper Aircraft based in Muncie, Indiana, has acquired Des Moines Flying Service (DMFS). The transaction was completed on 1 January.
Established in Des Moines, Iowa in 1939 by Howard Gregory, DMFS has evolved into one of the largest general aviation sales and service outlets worldwide. It is an authorised HondaJet dealer, and has been an authorised Piper Aircraft dealer for over 75 years. Collectively DMFS has sold and supported thousands of new and used aircraft to customers all around the globe.
As a top-rated Piper dealer, Muncie Aviation Company will be further bolstering its sales and service capabilities with the acquisition of Des Moines Flying Service. Muncie Aviation leadership will fill the executive DMFS roles, with Steve Thompson acting as president and Martin Ingram as chairman.
“We would like to thank Don Jay and John Lowe of Des Moines Flying Service for making this win-win acquisition possible. We look forward to taking our common values and business drives and expanding on DMFS's already considerable abilities,” says Thompson. “The DMFS team has much to be proud of, and my teammates and I look forward to working with them as partners.”
