Piper Aircraft and Averett University have launched an Aviation Alliance to provide training aircraft as well as student scholarships, sponsorships, maintenance and instructor training, and enhanced marketing support.
The eight-year agreement includes new Archer TX training aircraft for the University as well as training for their aircraft maintenance and instructor teams. Additionally, Piper will provide enhanced support by offering sponsorships and scholarships.
Simon Caldecott, Piper President and CEO, said:
“We are thrilled that Averett University has agreed to join the prestigious group of flight training institutions who have formed aviation alliances with us. We are even more pleased to be part of Averett’s growing flight program and look forward to supporting their promotional initiatives as they recruit some of the best and brightest talents”.
“This agreement with Piper Aircraft is the final piece of the puzzle for our Aviation program,” said Travis Williams, Chief Flight Instructor at Averett University.
“Everything else was already in place, including a quality program with great staff and facilities, and now we have added, in my opinion, the premier training aircraft in the world with the Piper Archer fuel injected G1000 nxi, which will help prepare our students for their continued success after graduation.”
