Piper Aircraft Inc. and Baymap Aviation are co-sponsoring the Istanbul Flight Training Exhibition (IFTE), to be held Sept. 27-28, 2013, at the WOW Istanbul Convention Center, within walking distance of the international Atatürk Airport.

“The Istanbul Flight Training Exhibition is the biggest regional flight training venue in Turkey,” said Enrico Evers, Piper’s director of Sales for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). “Through the support of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, IFTE has become a venue where local and foreign participants can communicate and network. Piper is pleased to participate.”

“With steady growth in new pilots, aviation personnel, aircraft operators and general aviation aircraft over the past five years, Turkey is poised to take advantage of a largely free-market economy and interest in learning to fly,” said Baymap Aviation Piper Turkey CEO Oben Oğultarhan.
