ACS Flight Training based in Perth, Scotland has acquired two Piper PA-28 diesel aircraft with glass cockpits, increasing the number of Piper PA-28 aircraft in its fleet of training and self-fly hire aircraft.

“We are very pleased to announce that we have acquired two Piper PA-28 Diesel aircraft with modern glass cockpits that include Garmin G430 and G500 systems, both increasing and updating our flight training offer,” said Louise Ewart, Director of ACS Flight Training.

“Our new aircraft are great for flight training students and self-fly hire customers. They are modern, more fuel efficient, very quiet, run on Jet A1 fuel rather than Avgas, and also run on a FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) system.”

ACS’s Pipers are equipped with a Garmin G500 glass cockpit.


Louise added, “Students wishing to fly these new aircraft must undertake some differences training to become accustomed to the FADEC and Garmin systems.

“We will be using these aircraft for CPL flight training, trial flying lessons and self-fly hire. The aircraft also have an 800nm range and 11 hours endurance for those wishing to hire the aircraft on longer trips.”
