Thrust Flight Takes Delivery of First Piper Archers
June 23, 2022
As news of the pilot shortage continues to sweep the nation, interest in Thrust Flight’s Zero Time to Airline® program has increased by over 450% over the last few months. These new Piper Archers will help Thrust Flight fulfill this demand while delivering high-quality training in the most modern training aircraft on the market today.
“We’ve been waiting in anticipation for the Archers to arrive from the moment we placed the order.” Says Patrick Arnzen, CEO of Thrust Flight. “These aircraft are a fantastic addition to our fleet and will help us continue to deliver exceptional training to our Zero Time to Airline® students.”
Patrick Arnzen along with a Thrust Flight CFI and two Zero Time to Airline students flew out to Vero Beach, FL to inspect the aircraft and perform test flights. After a thorough inspection, they flew the aircraft to Addison, TX where students and instructors were ready to celebrate.
“Our students and instructors have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of these airplanes,” says Liz Brassaw, Chief Pilot for Thrust Flight. “With a packed flight schedule, we can’t wait to get our students training in these new Archers.”
The Piper Archer TX is a technically advanced aircraft equipped with the G1000 avionics suite. These air-conditioned airplanes will fit in perfectly with the rest of Thrust Flight's all glass fleet.
