Wipaire to Hold Safety Seminar in Leesburg, Florida

We are pleased to extend a warm invitation to pilots and aircraft owners to attend a safety seminar at Wipaire’s service center in Leesburg, Florida.  The event will take place on Saturday, February 27th, and will feature a variety of seminar topics for seaplane and landplane pilots alike.  Based at the Leesburg International Airport (KLEE) since February 2013, Wipaire’s service center expanded into a new, larger hangar in 2015 and hosted a grand opening. 

“Following last year’s successful grand opening, we are excited to announce the return of our safety seminar to our Leesburg service center,” stated Chuck Wiplinger, President and COO of Wipaire.  “Since last year’s event, our Leesburg location has been named a Cessna Authorized Service Facility.  We look forward to seeing our Florida neighbors in our hangar again.”

Wipaire’s Leesburg, Florida service center was established in February 2013 at the Leesburg International Airport (KLEE).  The facility has grown to over 20,000 square feet and can accommodate the entire range of aircraft that Wipaire manufactures Wipline floats for, from the Aviat Husky to the Twin Otter.  In February 2015, the Leesburg location was named a Viking factory-endorsed service center.  Cessna Authorized Service Facility appointment followed in September of 2015. 

Topics for the safety seminar, schedule, and door prizes will be released in the coming weeks, but attendees can expect topics of interest for all pilots as well as seaplane-specific concerns.  FAA Wings credit will be available and a continental breakfast will be provided.  Both fly-in and drive-in visitors are welcome.  RSVPs are requested to ensure adequate seating and food.  To RSVP, visit www.wipaire.com/safetyseminar or call Amy Gesch at 651-414-6839.
