Derek Moore, a regional sales director for Textron Aviation, and his partner, John, flew a demo Cessna 182 from Wichita to Provincetown for a static display at the airport. This makes Textron Aviation the first Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to bring a plane to the event! Throughout the event, aircraft owners from the NGPA exhibited their airplanes at the local airport.
