Will Join Fleet Of More Than 20 Airplanes Already Flying For The Program
Piper will deliver two new Piper Arrow pilot training aircraft to the Aeronautics Division at Kent State University's College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology.
"Kent State's Aeronautic Division is looking forward to taking delivery of these two new Piper single-engine trainers later this year," said Robert G. Sines, Jr., Dean of Kent State's College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology. "They will become our newest training aircraft and operate from Kent State's Andrew Paton Field, one of the few university operated airports in the world."
The Kent State Aeronautics Program is the largest flight training school in Ohio and flies from Kent State University Airport in Stow, Ohio. The program has more than 500 students seeking degrees in Flight Technology, Aviation Management, Aeronautical Systems Engineering Technology, Aeronautical Studies and Air Traffic Control.
"The two Arrow trainers will join Kent State's learning fleet of more than 20 single-engine and two twin-engine aircraft," said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott. "They are the only complex single-engine trainers available today, and we are grateful to Dean Sines and Kent State for recognizing their proven track record of assisting student pilots to become full-fledged aviators."
