GippsAero Is Prepared for Takeoff in the June Issue of Business Review Australia

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 24, 2011) - In an exclusive interview with Business Review Australia, company CEO Terry Miles explains how for three decades, GippsAero has been an established name in the aeronautical industry in Australia.

Founded in 1977 by George Morgan and Peter Furlong, GippsAero started out as an aircraft maintenance and modification business working at the Latrobe Regional Airport in Morwell. The company worked for local commercial aircraft operators and some larger organizations such as the National Safety Council and Esso.

As time passed GippsAero had made so many modifications to agricultural aircraft that the company decided to certify its new design and its manufacturing branch was born. The company's first original aircraft design was the GA200, which achieved Australian CAA certification standards in 1991 and received US certification in 1997.

About GippsAero

GippsAero has manufactured 45 model GA200 aircrafts in the Latrobe Valley near Melbourne, with 28 of these aircrafts being exported to clients in countries all over the globe, including the US, China, Canada, Brazil, New Zealand and South Africa.

"We're certified in 38 different countries, so we service Europe, South America, North America, Canada, the Middle East, South Africa, North Africa, Indonesia, India, and New Zealand," says Terry Miles, CEO of GippsAero.
