AIN story on ongoing changes at Piper


Piper moving ahead with Imprimis backing

Since Brunei-based Imprimis bought Piper Aircraft in 2009, the company has seen almost a complete replacement of its leadership ranks and subsequently a redesign of the renamed PiperJet Altaire and a commitment to driving more sales outside the stagnant U.S. marketplace. At one time Piper had orders for as many as 200 PiperJets, but Randy Groom, Piper’s executive vice president, said that number has dropped to 157.
