“Now that over 50 GB1 Gamebirds have been delivered, we’ve looked for a trusted partner to help manage and service a growing customer base,” said Game Composites’ Chief Operating Officer, Josh Richards. “We believe Premier Aircraft Sales is that partner. Their depth of experience selling and servicing composite aircraft and commitment to giving our customers an intimate factory experience made sense for our company.”

Premier Aircraft Sales deals in new and used piston and turbine airplanes and helicopters and is also an authorized seller of Diamond and Mooney aircraft with locations in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Fort Worth, Texas; and Norwood, Massachusetts.

“When I imagined flying an airplane as a kid, this is the experience I dreamt about. The GB1 GameBird is a truly amazing airplane, and not just because it is the only U.S.-built, FAA-certified, two-place airplane approved for unlimited aerobatics,” Lee Drumheller, Premier’s director of business development, added. “With a spacious cockpit, advanced Garmin G3X touchscreen avionics, and incredible visibility, it’s an incredibly comfortable and capable cross-country traveling machine.”

Game Composites, based in Bentonville, Arkansas, was founded by Walmart board member and philanthropist Steuart Walton, and aerobatic champion Philipp Steinbach in 2013, and the company’s GB1 Gamebird unlimited aerobatic aircraft is quickly becoming a household name in the personal and professional aerobatic community.

“We are extremely proud that Game Composites has put their trust in Premier to represent this amazing airplane,” Travis Peffer, CEO of Premier Aircraft Sales, said. “Our customers have come to expect the best in personally flown aircraft, and that’s what we’re offering with the amazing GB1 GameBird.”

Premier Aircraft Sales will be representing the GB1 Gamebird at the 2022 Stihl National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada, September 14 through 18.

The GB1 Gamebird starts at $515,000. For more information visit Premier Aircraft Sales’ website or contact Lee Drumheller via phone (334-663-3151) or email.
