The Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA) has entered into a strategic partnership with RepairAPlane.com, a new website designed to match general aviation aircraft owners with qualified A&P mechanics and certified repair stations throughout the country, including paint, interior and avionics shops.
At RepairAPlane.com, aircraft owners post needed repair or upgrade work for free, then receive bids directly from the mechanics and shops interested and qualified to do the job. This provides every owner with access to more resources than ever before when approaching their airplane repair or upgrade work, while at the same time allowing mechanics the opportunity to bid and win business they may not have had access to otherwise, officials note.
To celebrate the new partnership, Repairaplane.com is offering all PAMA members a discounted six-month trial subscription rate of $285 in order to take advantage of the site’s services. Membership includes a free tile ad on RepairAPlane.com’s home page, an enhanced profile in search results, email alerts when work is posted in their area, and a free PAMA membership renewal.
RepairAPlane.com subscribers will also receive personalized marketing support to ensure jobs are being posted within their area. As long as a member stays subscribed to RepairAPlane.com, their PAMA membership will be renewed annually at no cost on an ongoing basis.
Non-PAMA members who subscribe to RepairAPlane.com can also enroll in the introductory special and will be given a free one-year subscription to PAMA.
“The site gives mechanics and repair stations the opportunity to increase their business while gaining exposure in the marketplace at a very nominal cost,” says Dave Cooperman, one of the site’s partners. “One job should easily cover the cost to subscribe. In a tough economic environment we’re proud to launch a website and service that will bring some innovation to an often overlooked segment of aviation. Our partnership with PAMA is greatly welcomed, and we hope the site will provide unsurpassed value to its members and the industry as a whole.”
“As an industry resource for information regarding aviation maintenance, PAMA believes this to be a benefit to our members as not only an information resource but as an opportunity for a tremendous revenue generator for those who take advantage of the service,” noted Dale Forton, PAMA president.
