Vero Beach, Fla., May 5, 2011 – Piper Aircraft has approved the appointment of four new service centers for the Southern California region. The joint announcement is being made by Piper in conjunction with Cutter Piper Sales, the Authorized Dealer for Piper Aircraft for Southern California and Hawaii.
The new Piper Aircraft Authorized Service Center (ASC) locations will provide factory authorized maintenance services to Piper owners and operators throughout Southern California. The following companies have been designated Piper Aircraft Authorized Service Centers:
• Jet Source – McClellan-Palomar Airport (CRQ) – Carlsbad, CA
• American Aircraft Maintenance – John Wayne-Orange County Airport (SNA) – Santa Ana, CA
• Mather Aviation – Van Nuys Airport (VNY) – Van Nuys, CA
• Loyd’s Aircraft Maintenance – Meadows Field Airport (BFL) – Bakersfield, CA
All four companies were chosen to become Piper Aircraft ASC locations because of their established experience in providing quality aircraft maintenance services and their proven capabilities to service all Piper models. Each service center is authorized to provide aircraft maintenance, repairs, inspections, and routine service for new and pre-owned Piper Aircraft models. The four authorized service centers are also the only facilities approved by Piper Aircraft for warranty-related service in Southern California.
“Piper Aircraft owners now have more convenient choices for Authorized Service on their aircraft with our new Piper ASC partners,” said Will Cutter, President of Cutter Piper Sales. “The experienced technicians at Jet Source, American Aircraft Maintenance, Mather Aviation and Loyd’s Aircraft Maintenance make it easier than ever for owners to receive the best quality service for their aircraft without the hassle of traveling far for it.”
“Piper approved these four service centers in Cutter’s region for very good reasons. We expect they will meet or exceed our customers’ expectations for aircraft maintenance and together with Cutter Piper Sales, the Southern California Piper team will sell and service Piper airplanes in an exemplary manner befitting the quality of our customers,” said Piper Executive Vice President Randy Groom.
The partnership between Cutter Piper Sales and companies of the Piper Aircraft ASC network in Southern California affords new Piper aircraft owners a smooth ownership experience from day one by providing a simple transition between the sales specialist to the service specialist at the ASC of their choice. And as established and active aircraft maintenance facilities, all locations in the Piper Aircraft Authorized Service Center network in Southern California are immediately available for service on all Piper models.
