Thrust Flight Increases Piper Purchase to 22 Aircraft




This $12 million Investment will help Thrust Flight Meet Rapidly Growing Demand for their Zero Time to Airline Program


Addison, TX: The Thrust Flight Group, a professional flight academy based at Addison Airport, is excited to announce an additional purchase of 8 brand new Piper Archer TX aircraft for its flight training fleet as well as 2 Piper Seminole aircraft.

This purchase comes on the heels of the delivery of 6 brand new Piper Archers delivered in the past month. Thrust Flight is scheduled to receive an additional 6 Piper Archer TX Aircraft in Q3 of this year.

With this order Thrust Flight will have 20 Piper Archer TX aircraft in their fleet and 4 Piper Seminole aircraft in addition to Cessna 172 and SportCruiser aircraft.

These state-of-the-art Piper Archer TX and Seminole Aircraft come equipped with the G1000 avionics suite, adding to Thrust Flight’s large fleet of all-glass aircraft. They’ll also include air-conditioning to keep students and instructors comfortable in the Texas heat.

“We’re extremely happy with the Piper Archers we’ve received so far. This and future orders of Piper aircraft enable us to continuously improve and expand our fleet to meet the high demand for our professional pilot programs,” says Patrick Arnzen, CEO of Thrust Flight.

The new Piper Seminole aircraft will arrive in the second quarter of 2023 from the Piper Aircraft factory in Vero Beach, FL and the Piper Archer TX aircraft are expected to deliver in Q3-Q4 of 2023. They’ll be used at Thrust Flight’s two locations at Addison Airport and North Texas Regional Airport.
