The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has signed a new strategic partnership with Aircraft Spruce.
“Aircraft Spruce is one of the most respected brands in the aircraft parts and pilot supplies arena because of their commitment to great customer service,” said Ed Thompson, vice president of corporate partnerships for AOPA. “We are excited about the new member benefits this partnership creates.”
As a strategic partner in AOPA’s Corporate Partnership Program, Aircraft Spruce will support the association and its members through activities including sponsorship of the registration area at AOPA Aviation Summit, support for aopa.org content, and periodic special offers and discounts through both Aircraft Spruce and PilotShop.com. They will also provide year-round special offers through the AOPA Lifestyles Member Discounts Program.
Aircraft Spruce, founded in 1965 by Bob and Flo Irwin, is the aviation superstore for certified and homebuilt aircraft supplies. The company remains family owned and is run by President Jim Irwin.
“Aircraft Spruce has been a sponsor and supporter of AOPA for many years, and we are very pleased to become a Strategic Partner in 2012,” said Irwin. “AOPA does many wonderful things on behalf of general aviation, and we look forward to working closely with them to support their efforts.”
