Ukulele manufacturer Flight Instruments has granted Hal Leonard exclusive distribution of its products in the United States and Canada. Based in Slovenia, Flight offers a wide selection of ukuleles crafted in a variety of styles and materials. Since 2010, Flight has stayed true to its original mission: Create the best-priced, quality musical instruments and make them available for everyone who wishes to play.
As the ukulele explosion has grown, Flight has expanded beyond Slovenia and Europe, and is now available around the world. Through collaboration and partnerships with popular YouTubers, Instagrammers and bloggers focusing on bringing ukulele tutorials to the masses, Flight maintains a strong presence in the social media age.
Hal Leonard is adding Flight ukuleles to its roster of ukulele accessories, books and instruments, including Kahua Ukuleles, Woodrow Guitars and more. Hal Leonard already distributes Flight ukuleles throughout Europe and Australia.
“Hal Leonard has always placed great value on service and education and is exactly the type of partner we at Flight love to have. We’re very excited to continue to work with Hal Leonard in the U.S. to continue to cultivate ukulele players everywhere,” said Primoz Virant, chief operating officer of Flight.
Added Doug Lady, senior vice president at Hal Leonard, “We’re thrilled to offer U.S. dealers the assortment of Flight products. We look forward to helping the Flight brand expand across the U.S. and Canada, and reach new markets with our retailers.”
