VERO BEACH, Fla. — Piper Aircraft has received Type Certificate validation from the European Aviation Safety Agency to incorporate the Garmin G1000 avionics suite into new twin-engine Piper Seminole aircraft models.
The company recently made its first European delivery of a G1000 equipped Seminole to a European customer involved in pilot training.
Prince Aviation, of Belgrade, Serbia, took delivery of the new G1000 Seminole from Piper’s manufacturing campus and delivery center in Vero Beach. Prince Aviation plans to add the aircraft to its flight training fleet. The company also provides air charter services and performs aircraft maintenance and maintenance training.
Prince Aviation, founded in 1990, has its main hub at the Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport. Soon after the commercial operations started, the company established its pilot training organization which today offers a wide range of courses (from PPL to type rating training) and has trained more than 1,000 pilots in the last 20 years.
The Piper Seminole, with standard G1000 avionics, is a twin-engine piston powered aircraft that seats four and is powered by two Lycoming L/O -360-A1H6 each generating 180 hp.
