Piper teams with Florida school to train pilots


The Florida Institute of Technology will buy up to 24 new Piper Archers and Seminoles as part of a new vocational training program with Piper Aircraft. Florida Tech already has a large aerospace and flight training program, but the partnership will add internship opportunities, mentoring programs, scholarships and more career guidance for its students. The school will get its first eight new Archers, equipped with Garmin G1000 flight decks, starting next year. It has options on additional Archers and twin-engine Seminoles in the years after that. Florida Tech has about 400 students in its various aerospace programs. The flight training program currently has a fleet of 32 aircraft, many of which are Piper Warriors, Arrows and Seminoles.
