In partnership with RedHawk Aero LLC, Brown Aviation Lease launches its all-in consumption model for flight training aircraft with National Aviation Academy, Texas State Technical College and Executive Flyers Aviation.

The combination of aircraft, technology and all-in pricing will accelerate the growth and sustainability of flight training nationwide.

“Aircraft affordability and access to quality flight training equipment challenge 90 percent of flight training organizations,” states Michael Goulian, Red Bull World Series Air Race pilot and Owner of New England based flight school, Executive Flyers Aviation. “The RedHawk aircraft by itself begins to address the problem of operational affordability. Brown Aviation is taking the product a step further by creating a subscription-based consumption model that will provide the broadest segment of flight training operators access to RedHawk training aircraft. The combination of aircraft, technology and all-in pricing will accelerate the growth and sustainability of flight training nationwide.”

In the spring of 2014, Brown Aviation Lease will soft launch their new program with National Aviation Academy, Texas State Technical College and Executive Flyers Aviation. Each of these high-utilization environments will get a diesel-powered RedHawk Training Aircraft to test assumptions and prove the viability of a model anchored in affordable pricing, fleet flexibility and ease of use through technology. These three sites will integrate RedHawk aircraft into their curriculum and be a vital part in measuring the programs impact on flight schools.
