Sporty’s 30-year tradition of offering crystal Christmas ornament continues this year, with the 2014 ornament featuring a Beaver on floats.
With the FAA mandate that all pilots seeking an ATP certificate be required to complete an FAA-approved ATP Certification Training Program (ATP-CTP) prior to taking the ATP Knowledge test, Sporty’s has partnered with ABX Airlines in Wilmington, Ohio, to offer this training.
Sporty’s now offers a selection of kneeboards for the use of all iPad models in the cockpit.
Sporty’s now offers the new Pilot Wings Sunglasses, featuring non-polarized lenses designed to enhance the environment around you while in flight.

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast doesn’t roll off the tongue, and neither does ADS-B. But when it comes to what this system means for you and your aircraft, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
Cincinnati Avionics wants to make the decision easier, so it has compiled information on ADS-B to answer all the questions you may have that you can access at CincinnatiAvionics.com/ADSB.
When it comes time to update your panel to accommodate ADS-B, you can view available ADS-B avionics along with a description of the capabilities of each piece of equipment.
“Our experience developing and enhancing Stratus put us in the forefront early on of ADS-B experts,” said Cincinnati Avionics President Chuck Gallagher. “We have smoothed the transition to ADS-B for dozens of aircraft owners. We’re patient; we’re thorough; we will do it right the first time.”
Aircraft owners have until 2020 to update their panels, but it makes sense to start the process now at Cincinnati Avionics, company officials said.
Free consultations are available – talk one-on-one with a fellow pilot – by calling 513-735-9595 or emailing Avionics@Sportys.com.
