Schweizer has announced that Peter Behr has joined the helicopter manufacturer as Senior Sales Representative for the EU and U.K. Based near Cologne, Behr is responsible for providing current and new Schweizer customers long-term, personalised Schweizer support by overseeing aircraft sales, parts sales and service.
Behr has an impressive track record in the helicopter industry as both a pilot and helicopter business owner. As a pilot, he has built more than 12,000 flight hours, starting his military career with initial flight training in Fort Rucker, Alabama, U.S.A. Since his service, he has flown as a commercial pilot and flight instructor. He has also been a senior flight examiner for the German Aviation Authority since 2009.
Commenting on his appointment Behr said “I first learned to fly in the renowned Hughes 269, which has today evolved into the Schweizer 300C,” Behr says. “I am passionate about and honored to be a part of reactivating this beloved aircraft as the proven solid training helicopter it has always been. Listening to customer needs and creating solutions has always been my strength. I am looking forward to representing Schweizer with operators and owners of Schweizer helicopters and, of course, helping this aircraft win over new pilots, operators, and owners.”
