ABOUT LEIGHNOR AIRCRAFT [Courtesy of Leighnor Aircraft website]
Leighnor Aircraft in Prescott, Arizona was legally formed on February 27, 2017, after Lance and Debbie Leighnor moved from Overland Park, Kansas to Prescott in May of 2016. Leighnor Aircraft flew its first commercial rental operation on July 20, 2017.
Our mission is to provide clean, well-maintained and affordable aircraft to the Prescott aviation community. We are strongly committed to aviation safety and the maintenance of our aircraft, as Lance and Debbie fly our aircraft along with all our other renter pilots.
Our company is not the first company with the name of “Leighnor Aircraft”. Our heritage dates back to the end of the Second World War and Hutchinson, Kansas, where three Army Air Corps servicemen known as “The Flying Leighnors” lived in this small Midwestern farm town.
Lance’s father Bill along with his two brothers founded a charter service and flight school at the close of the Second World War named Leighnor Aircraft. The company was founded in January of 1946 with three Army Air Corp Surplus Stearman trainers and a Cessna Bobcat.
The company’s tagline in 1946 was “Accomplish more – Fly with Leighnor!”
Leighnor Aircraft has also adopted the tagline used in 1946 as it’s just as applicable today as it was in 1946.
