AeroGuard Flight Training has placed an order for ninety new Archer TX aircraft. The addition of these new Piper trainers will almost double AeroGuard’s fleet size, bringing it to over 200 aircraft. AeroGuard Flight Training Center has four campus locations, three in the U.S and one in Saudi Arabia. These locations train more than 2,000 student pilots, preparing them for their careers at the world’s leading airlines such as Cathay Pacific, SkyWest and Korea Aerospace University. AeroGuard also has partnerships with many other airline and university partners across the Middle East, India and the rest of Asia. 

In addition to this order of 90 aircraft, AeroGuard will have added 25 additional planes to its rapidly expanding fleet by the end of 2023. AeroGuard also recently expanded its Phoenix, Arizona location, growing capacity by 30% with the addition of a new building.

AeroGuard Flight Training Center has seen significant growth in enrollment this year, especially in its domestic training programs. Its Pilot Pathway Program, offered in partnership with SkyWest Airlines, provides students with a clear path to their future career with guaranteed interviews at each stage, ongoing mentorship, and tuition reimbursements. AeroGuard also became the Flight Training provider for Arizona State University Professional Flight degree in 2022, allowing students to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree and the 7 FAA ratings and certifications to become a commercial pilot.

Joel Davidson, CEO of AeroGuard Flight Training Center, commented: “We are thrilled to sign this agreement with Piper Aircraft to bring 90 new Piper Archers to AeroGuard’s fleet. This investment represents our commitment to providing our airline partners’ student pilots with every resource they need to succeed while experiencing the highest quality flight training in the world. With these additional aircraft, AeroGuard has the capacity to welcome hundreds of new airline cadets to our pilot training programs.” 

John Calcagno, President and CEO of Piper Aircraft, said: “It is an honor to expand our fleet partnership with well-known Piper Flight School Alliance member, AeroGuard. We pride ourselves in the relationships we build with schools such as AeroGuard and on the training aircraft we provide them, known for their reliability and ease of use, to train the next generation of pilots.”
