Pipistrel can build a aircraft to suit, aircraft can be VFR or IFR compatible. We also have used aircraft for sale or for a fleet. We can put Garmin or King equipment in any aircraft. We have new, used or barely used aircraft. Pipistrel avionics are modern and do not require upgrading like similar priced products. It is ADS-B compliant and has auto pilot and other necessary flight features.
Durability in the training market requires careful planning, for this reason Pipistrel have chosen to supply the Pipistrel ALPHA TRAINER with extra heavy-duty seat fabric, the wheel spats are also removed from this aircraft meaning it's impossible for a student to break them getting in and out and in the unlikely event of a puncture the wheel can be replaced in around 2 minutes, again design features helping to keep the Pipistrel ALPHA TRAINER in the air and earning you money rather than being in the repair shop.
