July 30, 2009 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin
- Sport pilots have long known the advantages of partnering to lower the
cost of aircraft ownership. Two challenges are, however, finding the right
partners and administering the business side of the partnership.
The Aircraft Partnership Association (APA)
addresses both problems with its free online service on display in the
Aviation Learning Center.
APA founder and CEO David Kruger reports that
within one week of going online more than 1,000 people had signed up and
the first successful “matches” were being reported.
Beyond helping to match potential partners,
APA provides guidance on best practices for setting up a partnership, plus
online services to assist scheduling maintenance and cost calculations.
APA’s services are provided free of charge on their website www.theapa.com.
