Plans June 21 Grand Opening
AirShares Elite New England -- part
of the shared aircraft ownership program AirShares Elite -- told
ANN this week it has expanded operations to the T.F. Green Airport
(KPVD) in Providence, RI, giving pilots in southeastern
Massachusetts, Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut access to its
fleet of state-of-the-art four-seat aircraft for business and
AirShares Elite Providence, located at Horizon Aviation on the
northwest ramp, will host its Grand Opening on June 21, from 3:00
pm to 8:00 pm. Area pilots will be able to learn the benefits of
fractional ownership, and the public can explore the benefits of
learning to fly.
For example, a pilot flying an AirShares Elite aircraft from
Providence can get to a meeting in New York, the ski slopes in
Vermont or the beaches in New Jersey in less than an hour. Cape Cod
and the islands are a 20-minute hop. Aircraft available in the
AirShares Elite program will be on display.
"The AirShares Elite program is a very attractive option for
people whose flying needs don’t justify buying and owning an
entire aircraft," said Brad Rosse, regional director for AirShares
Elite. "Horizon Aviation is a great partner as it is Rhode
Island’s largest flight training center with excellent
customer service. With its proximity to Boston’s South Shore,
Cape Cod, the islands, and the Rhode Island and Connecticut coasts,
the Providence location will increase the ease of accessibility
across all three states."
AirShares Elite operates a fleet of Cirrus SR22 four-seat, 200
mph/185 knot airplanes, featuring the unique Cirrus Airframe
Parachute System (CAPS) and the Avidyne Entegra integrated "glass
cockpit" flight deck.
"AirShares Elite is a great way for pilots to experience the
freedom and flexibility of private aviation," said Zeke Valtz,
president of Horizon Aviation.
Horizon Aviation is Rhode Island’s largest full-service
flight school with FAA Part 141 certification.
