Piper Aircraft Inc. and Piper Generalvertretung Deutschland are collaborating to display aircraft at the upcoming AERO Friedrichshafen 2013, to be held April 24-27. On display will be a single-engine Piper Meridian turboprop and a twin-engine Piper Seneca V.

“Year after year, AERO Friedrichshafen is where serious general aviation buyers congregate from across Europe, the Middle East and Africa,” said Enrico Evers, Piper Regional Sales Director, EMEA. The trade show on the shores of Lake Constance is a prime meeting place for the aviation community and a key interface between industry and the public.

“Piper is appreciative that Piper Generalvertretung Deutschland, our German distributor, is partnering with Piper to have a strong presence at the show,” he said.
