Cessna Presents Platinum Award To Pigs Can Fly Training Center

Best. Name. Ever.

First things first: whoever named the Cessna Pilot Center at California's San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport certainly earned their paycheck that week, as it's one of the cleverest business names we've come across in recent memory.

Oh, and the rest of the workers at Pigs Can Fly Aviation are apparently doing a pretty good job, too.

ANN learned Monday the company received the Platinum Award for exceptional performance in the Cessna Pilot Center (CPC) network from Cessna Aircraft Company. The award was presented by CPC Western Regional Manager Jim Pitman to PCF Aviation co-owner Patrick Mallon during the August 2007 Cessna Pilot Center Seminar in Wichita.

Cessna considers a number of factors in evaluating CPC performance including facilities, training equipment and general operations... and Pitman says PCF rose to the top.

"PCF Aviation is one of the finest Cessna Pilot Centers in the country," Pitman said. "Pat and his team provide the right mix of well-maintained aircraft, excellent instruction, and outstanding customer service. This Platinum Award is Cessna's acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication so evident in all of PCF's activities."

Cessna counts approximately 300 facilities around the world in its CPC network, which was established more than 35 years ago. PCF is located at McChesney Field (SBP), on the central coast of California.

The planemaker says the average time for students to obtain their private pilot's certificate while using Cessna's computer-based instruction training course is only 54.5 hours, almost 30 percent less than the national average -- resulting in less expense for the student and a more efficient learning process.

"PCF Aviation is honored to receive the Platinum Award in 2007, which coincides with Cessna's 80th anniversary celebration," Mallon said. "The Cessna Pilot Center program offers the safest, most advanced flight training system available today. PCF Aviation has helped more than 1,150 people take flight since 2001 and with our recent expansion to the Paso Robles Airport we will continue to teach the Central Coast to fly."

The Pigs Can Fly Aviation fleet includes nine Cessna aircraft, with two Cessna SkyCatcher LSAs (type shown above) slated to be added in the coming years. Which leads us to suggest the following tagline: "Come Catch The Sky At Pigs Can Fly!"

Just a thought...
