Cessna Aircraft Corporation has appointed Wipaire Inc.’s Leesburg, Florida, facility as an authorized service facility for Cessna propeller aircraft, including the Caravan series. The appointment further confirms Wipaire’s position as the leading maintenance provider for wheeled and float-equipped Cessna aircraft in central Florida and surrounding areas. Wipaire’s South St. Paul, Minnesota headquarters has been an authorized service facility for Cessna propeller aircraft since 1981.
“Being appointed a Cessna authorized service facility is a key development for our Leesburg facility,” said Chuck Wiplinger, President and COO of Wipaire, Inc. “Owners and operators of Cessna aircraft, especially those on Wipline floats, can have the utmost confidence in Wipaire to maintain their aircraft and floats, whether in Minnesota or Florida.”
Bill Pike, general manager of Wipaire’s Leesburg service center, added “Our team in Leesburg is excited to have earned this appointment and look forward to serving our neighbors in Florida and surrounding areas.”
Wipaire’s Leesburg service center was established in 2013 to offer a convenient location for customers based in the southeastern United States and the Caribbean. In addition to being a Cessna authorized service facility for propeller aircraft, the facility is also a Viking factory-endorsed service center with capacity for aircraft ranging in size from the Aviat Husky to the Viking Twin Otter. www.wipaire.com
