Eighteen Piper Warriors Go To Government Flight School In Curug
Piper completed delivery this week of 18 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.
"This large fleet purchase will enable Indonesia to continue to train students to the highest standards in an up-to-the-minute training environment," said Chuck Glass, director of Piper Global Fleet Sales. The Piper Warrior is a four-place, single-engine, piston-powered airplane with fixed landing gear that is specifically designed to train new pilots.
"This is an excellent choice to help STPI in its mission to train more pilots to meet the country's growing requirement for air transportation, which will aid in 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. (Piper Warrior III file photo)
