Piper Aircraft, Inc. (“Piper”) and Aircraft Technical Publishers (“ATP”) announced today that beginning December 5, 2012 access to all Piper maintenance publications and regulatory documents will be available exclusively through the ATP Aviation Hub™ Online Service and ATP’s NavigatorV™Desktop Platform. Until that time, Piper customers can access Piper’s manuals and technical publications through Avantext, Inc., which will continue to serve as Piper’s exclusive distributor of all Piper maintenance publications and regulatory documents until December 4, 2012.
