November 26, 2013  | 

As part of a new long-term agreement with Piper Aircraft, Liberty University School of Aeronautics recently added a new Piper Arrow pilot training aircraft to its fleet.

"Liberty University School of Aeronautics is excited to accept delivery of a new Piper Arrow into our rapidly growing fleet," said retired U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. David Young, dean of the School of Aeronautics and president of the Lynchburg, Va., fixed-base operator Freedom Aviation. "Piper trainers have become a mainstay in Liberty's aeronautics curriculum and have played a large role in the growing of Liberty University's program from four students to more than 800 in the past 11 years. Liberty's continued plans for growth will further necessitate additional fleet expansion, and the school is looking forward to making many of those additions Piper products."
