Piper Arrow II
Cessna Skyhawk II
Winnipeg's Flying Colors Offers Only Complex Single in Manitoba Market
22 October 2003 (Winnipeg, Manitoba) - Flying Colors Pilot Training today announced the latest additions to its aircraft fleet at Winnipeg International Airport: a Piper PA28R-200 Arrow II and a Cessna C172P Skyhawk II.
The Arrow is a retractable,
low wing, complex single engine 4-place aircraft. The Skyhawk is the
most ubiquitous aircraft in general aviation.
"The Arrow meets the complex
aircraft requirements for our advanced and integrated training programs."
Bland, General Manager and Chief Flight Instructor at Flying Colors.
"These are great traveling planes, super for weekend trips and very nice handling!" said Flying Colors President Michael Gillespie. "The Piper Arrow is a good performer and carries four people at little additional cost. This will be a very popular option for groups and long trips. The combination of high speed and range is hard to beat! The Skyhawk is perhaps the most popular touring aircraft of all time. It is a reliable, economical heavy hauler - very simple to fly!"
Flying Colors delivers its award-winning aviation programs from its location at Winnipeg International Airport using the most modern and best-equipped training aircraft available. All flight training is Transport Canada approved and is performed to international ICAO standards. All programs are open to Canadians as well as international and American students.
