Free Sport Pilot Rating With LSA Purchase
US Aviation Group is offering a free sport pilot rating to anyone purchasing a new LSA from them. “Because people are showing up with the intention of getting the rating and buying an airplane, we decided to offer the instruction free of charge to anyone who buys one of our LSA,” said Mike Sykes, US Aviation’s president. “Some people will face their first long cross-country flight when they’re finished with the training, so we’ll have an instructor accompany them to their home airport to shoot a few touch-and-goes when they get there.” Located in Denton, Texas, US Aviation is an authorized dealer for Remos, Breezer, Skylark and the Tecnam Sierra and Bravo. For more information, contact: US Aviation Group, (866) 383-2400, www.usaeroplex.com.

Free Gift With Purchase
Aero 600 Avionics Cleaner prevents cockpit panel deterioration by avoiding the use of harsh chemicals, alcohol or ammonia. The nonstreaking plant-based formula won’t deteriorate sensitive electronic components. It prevents the normal scratching or pitting that results from applying chemical cleaners, thus reducing the probability that pilots will need to replace expensive units because of screen deterioration. For easy access, keep it in the side pocket of your aircraft and use it to reduce glare from dust and fingerprints. Buy a bottle and get the book Eliminating Pilot Error free.
