Newsletter No. 10 November 2003.

Welcome to Newsletter No. 10, in this issue we feature the following.

  • The NEW Pipistrel Factory at Ajdovscina Airport progressing well

  • New, cheaper currency exchange can save you $$ thousands

The NEW Pipistrel Factory

It was only two Newsletters ago we featured artistic pictures and gave details of the first stone being laid for the new factory, now Tine has sent through the following photographs of the factories construction progress.

Viewed from the main road on the corner of the airport, note the snow in the background.... An early winter

Facing the airfield the new factory will increase production from 4 to 10 aircraft per month
perfect timing for Sport Pilot in the USA market

The construction workers are amazing, they even work sundays!

The impressive hills 'Out the Back' make for perfect slope soaring and a fantastic testing area for the Pipistrel team.

To provide our customers with cheaper rates when buying aircraft or supplies through us, we have approached Custom House Currency Exchange and established a preferred trader alliance. What this means to our customers is that, when purchasing goods through us which require foreign currency exchange, Custom House will guarantee to give us a rate which is better than the banks.

We have researched the market and, prior to releasing this to our customers we have trialled Custom House services ourselves. Over the past 30 transactions, we have established that Custom House rates are indeed lower than any bank exchange rate that we have been able to obtain. On one occasion, using Custom House we saved one customer over $3,000 on the purchase of his aircraft.

On the security side, Custom House is underwritten by Chubb World Wide Insurance. To date we have had no problems and their service is both efficient and cost effective.

In addition to the guarantee of lower rates than the banks, since we are a large customer ourselves, Custom House has extended to us a further discount for all of our customers. By extending this offer to you, we will grow our customer base and achieve even larger discounts in the future.

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, or would simply like a quote to compare with other rates, then send an email to Daniel Archibald (Foreign Exchange Trader) at or and state that you are an X-Air Australia customer. There is no obligation so please check them out if you need foreign currency exchange.

For more information, visit their web site at

or call Daniel within Australia on 1800 887 773 or internationally on +61 2 9221 9380

Till next time... Safe Flying Michael Coates
