Media Release:
OLATHE, KS (March 11, 2021) – KCAC Aviation announced today it has appointed Arapahoe Aero in Englewood, CO, as a Piper Factory Authorized Satellite Service Center for Colorado and western Kansas.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to have Arapahoe Aero as part of the Piper Authorized Service Center network,” said Mark Riley, General Manager of KCAC Aviation. “They have developed an excellent reputation over the years for providing quality service to their customers. The synergy between our two organizations and the emphasis that we both place on elevating the customer experience will reinforce our commitment to providing outstanding service and support to our Piper customers.”

“Arapahoe Aero has been providing aircraft maintenance on single, multi-engine piston and light turbine aircraft since 1984,” said Scott Utz, President of Arapahoe Aero. “We value the relationships that we have built over the years with our customers, our employees and with partners like KCAC Aviation. They have a long-standing history with Piper Aircraft, and we look forward to working with them to expand our services within the Piper Aircraft community in Colorado.”

During a recent expansion for KCAC Aviation, Colorado joined Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma as part of KCAC’s Piper sales and service territory. This addition of a Piper Factory Authorized Satellite Service Center located at Centennial Airport (KAPA) near Denver will allow customers convenient access for maintaining their aircraft at a facility that is well respected within the aviation community.

“We are delighted that KCAC Aviation has chosen Arapahoe Aero as an authorized satellite service center,” said Ron Gunnarson, Piper Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Support. “Making sure that our Piper customers have convenient access to a service and support network is important to us, and given Arapahoe Aero’s considerable experience working on Piper Aircraft, this will certainly benefit our customers in Colorado and western Kansas.”

KCAC Aviation is a full-service aviation company headquartered at Johnson County Executive Airport (KOJC) in Olathe, KS, with a Pilatus Sales Office at DuPage Airport (KDPA) in West Chicago, IL. Dave DeWalt, an aviation industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience, manages new and pre-owned Piper Aircraft sales for KCAC.
