Textron Aviation said it’s signed a multi-year agreement in which it will be a Miami-based pilot training school’s exclusive provider of flight training aircraft.

The Wichita-based maker of Cessna and Beechcraft aircraft did not disclose financial details of the arrangement with Pan Am International Flight Academy.

The company said the deal would include sales of training aircraft including the Cessna Skyhawk 172 as well as aircraft service support, parts discounts and training.
