KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Hangar Ten, an aviation services provider at Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport (MKC), has named Larry Peet as Director of Sales for its new aircraft sales initiative.
In this new position, Peet will be responsible for developing an aircraft sales program that places an emphasis on coaching rather than selling the customer, company officials said.
“In developing this new aircraft sales program, we looked at the process a buyer goes through in trying to decide which aircraft is the right choice for the mission,” said Jim Stowers, founder and developer of Hangar 10 and Hangar 10 Aircraft Sales. “Where as a typical aircraft broker is centered on the sales process, we’ve taken the approach of being a personal coach or an advocate of the customer. In other words, we’re there for the customer every step of the way, offering information needed to make an informed decision.”
Prior to joining Hangar 10 Sales, Peet was Director of Operations and Aircraft Sales for Port City Air in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He also worked as Vice President of Aircraft Sales for Carolina Jet in New England, and spent nine years in Sales and Marketing at Cessna Aircraft Company leading business development for the Citation Mustang.
Peet’s career spans 30 years in the aviation industry, from Navy flight deck operations and airport operations to sales and marketing. He is a commercial pilot with instrument and multi-engine ratings.
Hangar Ten includes an expansive hangar and an executive terminal that houses a fully equipped fitness center. Other amenities include overnight pilot quarters, conference and meeting facilities, customer and pilot’s lounges and a flight planning area.
