It’s Springtime, Time for New Beginnings
By Matt Isley
Twin Commander Aircraft
Spring is upon us and it would appear that folks are finally taking a deep breath. Despite some lingering concerns about the economy, our industry is digging out and marching ahead as folks are taking to the air again. I recently completed a three-week tour of many of our domestic factory-authorized service centers, and I am happy to report that there is a lot of activity out there among Commander owners. Folks are getting back to business and they are again turning to their Commander to help them get there. In times like these, it’s never been more important to get things done right while you’re getting them done fast.
One thing that you can rely on is the continued factory support from Twin Commander Aircraft, LLC and the world-class service provided by our factory-authorized service center network. We endeavor to provide the best parts and technical support to the fleet, and our service centers go the extra mile to keep your Commander at the top of its game. That allows you to focus on the things important to running your business.
In a few weeks, Twin Commander Aircraft will play host to our entire Service Center network in Oklahoma City as we come together for the ninth biennial Twin Commander Service Center Symposium. This event allows us to meet with only members of our Service Center network and focus on their issues, concerns, and ideas. We give each other our undivided attention for three days as we discuss short-term and long-term fleet support, new product concepts to keep your Commanders up-to-date, and how we can work together to continue to provide the best fleet maintenance and technical support in the general aviation community.
The theme for this year’s event is “New Beginnings,” which I think is appropriate for a couple of reasons. First, the long recession has many folks pulling themselves up by their bootstraps and in many senses starting over. Some of the changes in the financial world have some business owners re-writing the rules, so to speak.
The second reason we chose “New Beginnings” as a theme for the symposium is because we recently moved the operations of Twin Commander Aircraft, LLC to Creedmoor, North Carolina, as many of you know. It is a new chapter in a long book, and we are running at full speed with some new faces and a renewed sense of purpose. Stay tuned for the next chapter…
Here’s to safe and happy flying.
