Piper Launches Program It Says Will Reduce Cost Of New Aircraft
Piper Aircraft's new PiperMatch program makes aircraft
ownership more affordable for pilots who aspire to own one of the
company's exhilarating airplanes.
Introduced Monday at AirVenture, PiperMatch connects aviators
interested in combining their buying power to own a new Piper
aircraft at a reduced cost. Under the program, trained PiperMatch
specialists work to link aviators with carefully matched co-owner
candidates - Piper enthusiasts who share location, financial
wherewithal, and have compatible profiles.
"Piper Aircraft has a rich history of making General Aviation
affordable and accessible to aviators who share the passion for
flight," said Piper Executive Vice President Randy Groom.
"PiperMatch takes that legacy to the next level to assist more
pilots afford to live the dream," he added. "What makes PiperMatch
extraordinarily useful is the large database of aviators who are
willing co-owners," Groom said. "Now Piper dealers have an
effective tool to match aviators who want to share costs and who
live in proximity but may never meet if not for the PiperMatch
The innovative partner matching service is provided free of
charge by Piper dealers who can help consumers discover which Piper
airplane model makes the most sense for their intended missions and
budgets. PiperMatch specialists then compile a list of potential
co-owners who meet specific criteria.
The PiperMatch database is comprised of thousands of aviators who
have already embraced the concept of reducing the cost of ownership
through co-ownership. While PiperMatch is an effective tool to
identify potential co-owners, the program does not end there.
Aviators working through local dealers to access PiperMatch also
have access to a suite of services from a specially structured team
These experts help form legal structures for co-ownership and
assist with tax, finance and insurance matters. The tax, legal,
finance and insurance expertise is provided by the collaborative
efforts of PiperMatch Ownership Services and the AOPA Insurance
Agency. Ultimately, Piper hopes the program will help more people
realize the dream of aircraft ownership by sharing costs and it
will help aviators get more aircraft for less money.
