We are very happy to start this new stage, where our company LAVIA ARGENTINA S.A. has reformulated its production processes, its quality controls and its COMMERCIAL relationship with the users of this wonderful aircraft that is the PA-25 series, being its current identification "PUELCHE" in homage to the indigenous tribes that populated the current territory where we produce (Mendoza, ARGENTINA). This decision obeys to follow with the criterion imposed by its initial manufacturer (PIPER Aircraft) who called it in its beginnings "PAWNEE". We trust that we are traveling a new path, which aims to provide SUPERIOR QUALITY services for the satisfaction of OUR CURRENT AND FUTURE CLIENTS. We are at your service, do not hesitate to contact US, since WE ARE THE CURRENT ORIGINAL MANUFACTURERS OF THIS AIRCRAFT PA-25 series (In all its models) and we have all the Certifications that grant us the universal rights on this aircraft. Also in compliance with international regulations and guaranteed by our National Administration of Civil Aviation (ANAC) the equivalent of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) also attend and offer technical support to all PA-25 series "PAWNEE" that have been manufactured by PIPER or its licensees around the world. We hope, then, that you will join this project to obtain the greatest benefits and to make your operations more efficient.
