Tour Airplane Factory
Piper Aircraft Factory Tour - Vero Beach, FL
February 24th, 2011, 1:00 P.M. Tour time
We are fortunate to have an Airplane Factory right here in Florida, and they give Factory Tours . Piper Aircraft is located in Vero Beach Florida, which is a few hours north of Broward County. We have a tour set up at 1:00 P.M. which will run about 2 hours. They manufacture general aviation planes from small trainers, to mid-size with 4 to 6 seats, to jets. We will learn and watch how they make airplanes in their factory. Get set to see lots of airplanes.

It's a two hour walking tour only for adults only. We must have closed shoes, long pants, and no cameras are allowed inside the factory.
I will be the event host
since I am very familiar with Piper aircraft having grown up around them and hanging out at the private airplane
areas. Between the tour guide at Piper and myself, we should be able to answer most of your questions. They were interested if there
were any pilots going, so if there were one or two in the group that would be great. I am a pilot and learned on Piper Cherokees and Piper Arrows.
Vero Beach is about 1 hour from Delray Beach so everyone can meet at Big Dave's place and then carpool up. If you are willing
to drive, please indicate in the RSVP note area. We are limited to 10 people, if successful, we may do this again.
The drive time from Delray Beach is approximately 1 hour and 49 minutes per google maps. It is right off exit 147 from I-95.
Big Dave's address for carpooling is 2025 Lavers Circle, parking lot D. We can use is lot to park our cars and carpool to save gas and money.
(This is a great idea folks. It's not everyday that you get to tour a airplane facility. If you have any questions feel free to post them up for conversation. There are no tours during the weekend.)
