LAKELAND, FL., April 8, 2022 – Piper Aircraft has announced an order for a Piper Seminole twin-engine trainer from Puerto Rico-based Inter American University. This order marks the first new Piper Seminole to be sold into Puerto Rico in over 20 years. The order was received on the fourth day of the Sun-n-Fun Aerospace Expo 2022. The Inter American University will take delivery of their first new Seminole in the first quarter of 2023, which will join their Piper fleet of eight Archers, one Seminole, and one Arrow.
The Airway Science Programs of the Inter American University started at the Metropolitan Campus in 1985 and then moved to the Bayamón (metropolitan) Campus in 1992 and today the School of Aeronautics offers the following Airway Science degrees:
• Aircraft Systems Management (Professional Pilot)
• Aviation Sciences Management
Both programs are accredited by the Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI).
The Inter American University School of Aeronautics is the only collegiate institution in the Caribbean to offer bachelor’s degrees in two areas of Airway Sciences.
“We are extremely excited to work with the Inter American University and support their flight program with advanced training equipment. The pilot training curriculum offered by Inter American University combined with the Garmin G1000 NXi equipped Piper Seminole will further strengthen their stellar reputation for providing well-trained pilots who are prepared for the demands of the aviation industry. We look forward to delivering their new Seminole next year”, said Dan Lewis, Manager, Regional Sales for Latin America.
