Blue Line Aviation Orders 115 Trainer Aircraft from Piper

Blue Line Aviation has inked a deal with Piper Aircraft to acquire 55 aircraft, with an option to purchase an additional 60, marking a significant step to update the company’s trainer fleet.

Blue Line Aviation, a flight school based in the US state of North Carolina, signed the long-term agreement to replace its existing single- and multi-engine fleet of Archer TXs and Seminoles over the next four years. Deliveries are expected to happen in the second half of 2023.

“Expanding our fleet partnership to Piper is a step towards reliably expanding our fleet rapidly to serve more students. We are further excited to be purchasing American-made airplanes built in the great state of Florida, which we will soon be calling home,” said Trey Walters, Founder, Blue Line Aviation, which is known for its career-driven six-month Career Pilot Program.

Piper is a member of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association and manufactures single- and twin-engine aircraft including the Piper Archer TX and Piper Seminole.
