Paradise expands dealer network

B & B Sport Aviation, based in Cambridge, Maryland, has joined the distribution network of Paradise Aircraft.

Paradise “As a successful aircraft dealer, we understand the value that consumers place on a warranty and how that factory support makes it easy for us to keep customers happy,” said Ted Bryant, owner of B & B Sport Aviation. “We’re very excited about taking delivery of our first Paradise P1 aircraft. The P1 first captured our attention at the Sebring Expo. After looking at other light sport aircraft, we quickly realized that the P1 simply has no equal in its class. The cockpit is neat and organized with no exposed wires or cables. The panel layout is akin to a much larger aircraft. The leather seats with embroidered logo are classy and the exterior finish is amazing.”

Each Paradise P1 aircraft is backed by a two-year/200-hour warranty with an inventory of parts readily available in the United States.
