Oshkosh, WI (July 22, 2019) — Texas Aircraft Manufacturing (AirVenture 2019 exhibits #355, 356, 361 and 362), announced today that to celebrate the official launch of the all-new Colt, the company is offering promotional “coupon” savings of $12,000 during Oshkosh AirVenture 2019.

 

“We are very exited to introduce the new Colt LSA at Oshkosh AirVenture and decided that the best way to observe the Colt’s introduction is to offer a one-week-only launch special on our fantastic new airplanes,” stated Carlos Barros, Founding Partner, Texas Aircraft Manufacturing. “Customers can come to our exhibit and get a coupon that will save $12,000 on any new Colt they purchase during the show.”
