New Regional Distributor Appointed By Flight Design USA

Stanton Sport Aviation Will Service The Upper Midwest

Stanton Sport Aviation at Stanton Airfield (KSYN) in Stanton, MN, has been named by Flight Design USA as its newest distributor servicing the upper Midwest region.

As a distributor, Stanton will place orders for aircraft commonly arriving in overseas shipping containers. They will reassemble these aircraft under the quality control system of the manufacturer following an extensive pre-delivery checklist and fly the aircraft before declaring them suitable to turn over to a new owner. The Stanton Sport Aviation team will sell the aircraft directly, as well as supply them to other dealers in the territory.

“I’ve been associated with the brand for several years but formerly worked under another distributor,” said Kent Johnson, principal in Stanton Sport Aviation. "As our business has grown and our knowledge of the product increased, we look forward to accepting this new role.” Johnson is highly qualified for the new position with CFI, CFI-G, and A&P credentials.

“We are very pleased to appoint Stanton Sport Aviation as the distributor for a territory including Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota,” said Flight Design USA president Tom Peghiny. “In our years of work with Kent and his team, we have discovered that some very pleasant people are also very good business people, a great combination in a customer-centered enterprise.”
 
“It is my pleasure to work with Kent and the Stanton team as distributors,” said Flight Design USA national sales manager John Gilmore. “Kent is one of those first-class individuals who intimately knows his way around sport and recreational aircraft given his relationship with Stanton Airfield.”

Also operating the Midwest’s largest soaring club, Stanton provides tailwheel instruction, offers maintenance service and hangars many aircraft of all kinds. The charming all-turf field is a short drive to the Southeast from the major metropolitan area of Minneapolis and St. Paul with a population of more than three million. The Twin Cities are the 15th largest metropolitan area in the nation and is rich in outdoor sports enthusiasts, offering a ripe market for Light-Sport Aircraft sales and service.
