    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.

    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.
