STOW, OHIO – The Aeronautics Division at Kent State University’s College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology, is taking delivery of two new Piper Arrows. The aircraft will operate from Kent State’s Andrew Paton Field in Stow, Ohio, one of few university-operated airports in the world.
The Kent State Aeronautics Program has more than 500 students seeking degrees in Flight Technology, Aviation Management, Aeronautical Systems Engineering Technology, Aeronautical Studies and Air Traffic Control. The two trainers will join Kent State’s learning fleet of more than 20 single-engine and two twin-engine aircraft.
The Piper Arrow is the only complex single-engine trainer available today. The aircraft is powered by a 200 hp Lycoming piston engine and cruises at speeds in excess of 137 kts. The aircraft features the Garmin G500 glass avionics suite.
In addition to the Arrow, Archer TX and DX, Piper Aircraft Inc., headquartered in Vero Beach, Fla., manufactures the M-Class series – the Meridian, Mirage and Matrix; and Twin-Class Seneca V and Seminole (www.piper.com).
