Piper Employees

Piper Aircraft Inc. say that they have achieved “double-digit” growth in both sales revenue and deliveries of new aircraft in 2017, in particular as demand for trainer aircraft and M-class products has continued to expand. As a result, there are now over 900 employees at the Piper Aircraft headquarters in Vero Beach, Florida, USA. Piper Aircraft say that during the past 18 months, it has hired over 300 employees, which equates to a 20% increase in employee numbers.

President and CEO Simon Caldecott said: “With aircraft orders in place for 2018 and several long term contracts for trainer aircraft, the near term forecast is stable. Additionally, our commitment to a level-loaded, build to order business model further enhances stability and creates consistent work load for the team. We are driven to continuously improve our products in support of our customers and their needs which helps create demand and results in the need for a strong and committed workforce.
