Piper Aircraft has delivered a new Seminole to Gatineau, Quebec-based Select Aviation College. The sale marks the delivery of the Canadian flight school's second Piper Seminole within two years. The aircraft will join a fleet of 35 aircraft, which includes 25 single engine aircraft, two amphibious seaplanes and six helicopters.
“Piper Aircraft is proud to be part of Select Aviation College's comprehensive aviation programme. As Canada's leading aviation college, it demonstrates its commitment to excellence and its students by providing multiple aviation programmes and opportunities. We look forward to its continued success and to providing more Piper trainers in support of its commitment to aviation education,” says Piper president and CEO John Calcagno.
“As we continue our legacy of providing a superior training experience, we are delighted to expand our multi-engine training fleet with the addition of a new Piper Seminole,” adds college owner Patrick Richardson. “As global demand for well-trained pilots continues grow, we are looking forward to meeting the need with exceptionally qualified and prepared pilots. The addition of a second twin engine Piper Seminole, with advanced Garmin G1000 NXi avionics, will help us continue to maintain the highest standards in education, which will help prepare our students for their continued success after graduation.”
