South Woodstock, Connecticut / July 25, 2012 — The Big Three of American states for aviation are California, Texas, and Florida, therefore it is vital for a successful organization to have good representation in all three. Flight Design USA announced at AirVenture 2012 that it had acquired two dealers strategically located in the north and south of Florida.

“After sifting through several dealership inquiries we selected two highly qualified representatives: Americana Aviation and Sport Aviation Florida,” observed John Gilmore, National Sales Manager for Flight Design USA. “Each dealership is led by a very experienced man who is dedicated to providing a great experience for their customers.”
