“The selection process was highly competitive and Legacy’s customer-focused approach, technological leadership and factory located training center are what set them apart. We will be ready for customers with a complete training program, including the deployment of a full motion flight training device, to support entry-into-service of the M600 later this year,” said Drew McEwen, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Piper Aircraft.
