Government Flight School Has 18 Warriors On Order
Piper Aircraft recently delivered the first six of an 18-unit
fleet order for Piper Warrior training aircraft to Sekolah Tinggi
Penerbang Indonesia, the government flight school at Budiarto
Airport in Curug, Indonesia.
Sekolah Tinggi Penerbang Indonesia (STPI) educates pilots under
the auspices of the Ministry of Transportation for the Republic of
Indonesia. On hand for delivery of the first six new aircraft was
Ir. Maryati Karma, MM, director of Indonesia's International Civil
Aviation Institute. "This is a significant fleet purchase and will
enhance the country's ability to train students in a modern
training environment," said Chuck Glass, director of Piper Global
Fleet Sales, based in Brunei.
"This is the perfect fleet airplane to assist STPI in its mission
to train more pilots to meet the country's growing requirement for
air transportation, so necessary to continuing to build the
country's economy," Glass said. The school offers private pilot,
commercial pilot, instrument rating and multi-engine training and
degrees in aviation.
The Piper Warriors join a number of other training aircraft in
STPI's fleet, which includes the Beech Sundowner, Piper Dakota,
Socata Tobago and Beech Baron.
