These aircraft will primarily serve students enrolled in the American Airlines Cadet Academy at Coast Flight’s campus in San Diego.
“Piper Aircraft is proud that the robust Piper Archer was selected as the primary training aircraft for Coast Flight Training. These 10 aircraft will be added to an already impressive fleet of 40 aircraft and will provide the school with a training tool that has a proven track record of assisting student pilots to become full-fledged aviators,” said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott. He added, “We look forward to continuing to support Coast Flight Training’s expansion as they work towards providing quality commercial pilots to the industry.
