Aircraft Corporation was formed by over 50 owners of
Commander aircraft in the spring of 2005. CPAC was
formed to submit a bid to buy the assets of defunct
Commander Aircraft Corporation from CAC’s bankruptcy
trustee and produce new Commander aircraft and
support the worldwide Commander aircraft fleet.
CPAC’s bid was successful and, CPAC closed the
acquisition at the end of June 2005.
The acquisition did
not include a lease of CAC’s former facility in
Oklahoma City and no appropriate space could be
found within commuting distance of the Oklahoma City
work force. After an intense search, the Company
chose Cape Girardeau Regional Airport for its new
home. All production equipment and inventory was
moved to our new facility in late 2005 and is now
fully set up for operations.
The board of directors
of Commander Premier Aircraft Corporation consists
of Gregory L. Walker, President and CEO. Mr. Robert
Tippens, serve as Vice-President/ Chief Financial
Officer and organizer of the
Group and a primary organizer of the Company.
CPAC’s operations in
Cape Girardeau are under the oversight of Mr. Carl
R. Gull, Vice President – Operations. Mr. John
Canavan is CPAC’s Inventory and Purchasing Manager.
Mr. Michael Bryant is CPAC’s PMA QA Manager.
