Wipaire engages Premiair as international installer
As international authorised installation and service centre, Premiair can provide installation and maintenance for Wipline 8750A and 8750S floats and designated Wipaire modifications for Cessna Caravans in Australia.

Minnesota-based aircraft floats manufacturer and engineering and modifications specialist Wipaire has named Australian MRO Premiair Aviation as its international authorised installation and service centre (AI&SC) for Wipline floats and Wipaire products.

Premiair is part of Textron Aviation's service network with three service centres across Australia in Perth, Melbourne and Gold Coast. As an AI&SC, Premiair can provide installation and maintenance for Wipline 8750A and 8750S floats, and designated Wipaire modifications for Cessna Caravan models such as single point fuelling, extended baggage compartment and Aurora interiors.

“As we expand global support of our products, Premiair was our first choice in representation in Australia. There are dozens of operators and hundreds of aircraft that will be able to receive factory quality installation and maintenance of our products. I am very happy with Premiair's commitment to quality,” says president and CEO Chuck Wiplinger.

Once the Premiair team is trained on Wipaire's full line of float and product solutions for Caravan models, it may expand its installation, service and support capability to all Wipaire product lines to further enhance offering solutions for aircraft located in the region.
