This week, Gobosh Aviation announced First Flight Aviation, LLC
has joined the company's distribution network. First Flight is
based in Fort Smith, AR and will represent Gobosh in Arkansas,
Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma & Kansas.
The First Flight Aviation team blends a rich aviation heritage
with over 30 years of experience in aircraft sales, maintenance and
flight training with business acumen honed by operating seven
successful automobile dealerships. Currently an aircraft dealer for
other piston products, First Flight recognizes that the Gobosh 700S
is in a class by itself with the highest quality fit and finish and
an unmatched warranty longer than any in the Light Sport
"As a successful automobile and aircraft dealer, we understand
the value that consumers place on a warranty and how that factory
support makes it easy for us to keep customers happy," said First
Flight general manager Jack Younger.
"We're very excited about taking delivery of our first two
[Gobosh 700S] aircraft only two weeks after we signed our dealer
agreement," adds Younger. "The 700 first captured our attention at

with aircraft dealers in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and
Southeastern regions of the US.
"We're looking for customer-focused aircraft dealers who have
the resources and drive to make light sport aircraft sales a
growing segment of their existing business," said Gobosh president
Tim Baldwin. "First Flight was an obvious addition to the Gobosh
dealer network because of their approach to sales and customer
support. They maintain an aircraft showroom and provide a customer
experience commensurate with the purchase of a high ticket item
"Gobosh offers a premium product that deserves to be represented
by the type of professionalism we found at First Flight," Baldwin
added. "Gobosh has an aggressive growth plan so we're looking for
dealers who want to sell airplanes today and not just take deposits
for future deliveries."
