The Aircraft Partnership Association (APA) has posted its 5,000th member profile on the Dallas-based organization’s website.
The association uses web-based programs to match personal partnership preferences that include aircraft type, budget, airport location, flying experience and more.
“While aircraft sales have slowed, the passion to keep flying is as powerful as it has always been,” stated David Kruger, president of the Aircraft Partnership Association. “Today’s reality is that an aircraft is an under-utilized asset that doesn’t need to be owned by a single entity. It just makes good fiscal sense to share the cost of owning and operating an asset that doesn’t get used every day.”
The service is free to members and it works for any aircraft, any budget, anywhere, Kruger added.
“The APA is what brought our partnership together,” said Bill Boczany, APA Member 2113. “In January 2009, I became interested in purchasing an aircraft. Initially, I posted bulletin board notices with pictures at local airports but I got absolutely no bites and no responses. Then I joined APA and quickly found two APA members nearby who were already looking for a third partner. We formed a partnership and took delivery of a brand new Tecnam P2002 Sierra Deluxe SLSA aircraft in June 2009.”
