VERO BEACH, Fla. — Piper Aircraft and its new aircraft dealers will exhibit a cabin mockup of the company’s Meridian (pictured) at the 2014 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention & Expo, Jan. 24-27, in New Orleans.

“Our new airplane dealers have found the annual new automobile dealers meeting to be an excellent venue to meet with thousands of auto executives from throughout the world to promote our M-Class airplanes,” said Piper Vice President of Sales and Marketing Drew McEwen.

    I’m no fan of Corporate welfare like the massive subsidies that Piper Aircraft receives from taxpayers in the State of Florida, but I am a fan of their product. We can only hope that the economy improves enough (fat chance!) so that we don’t find Piper with their hands in our pockets again.
