News from Tyler Sepp, Eagle Sport Aviation LLC. Tyler and his business partners are our new Six Chuter Flight Center in the Southwest U.S.

Greetings Valued Customers,

I’m writing you to announce we are in process of making a switch on how the Eagle Sport family operates; beginning Monday, January 23rd, 2017, we will be relocating our airplanes out of hangar on the North side of the Glendale Airport.
While a tough decision to make, we recognize the following benefits to support our business, our instructors, as well as our valued-clients:
• We will bring the rental back to $110/hour for the airplane; no added facility fees. Additionally, we will now be offering discounted bulk-rates;
• We will direct potential customers to affiliated instructors through Eagle Sport marketing, at no added costs. This will include an “About Me” Instructor spotlight for clients to learn about the instructor, their applicable experience, and make an informed decision to fly with that instructor. We are dedicated to help our affiliates build their flight instruction businesses.
• We are partnering with a third-party webhosted technology, “Flight Circle.” This website will provide your clients the ability to reserve your time, make online payments, and most importantly provide the seamless ability for our instructors to manage and view their past and upcoming flight history; again at no added costs to you;
• Aligning with our new hangar affiliate will now afford us the opportunity to permanently hangar our planes and powered parachutes. This will provide us the ability to keep our planes clean and safe from adverse weather conditions. Within the hangar, at your immediate reach, will be servicing materials such as rags, oil, and cleaners to limit your “back-and-forth” trips you previously had to make from the hangar to the tie-down spot;
• Maintenance is co-located with dedicated oversight of the aircraft. This will allow us to commit to a fixed maintenance schedule for both planes as well as having the support to address immediate concerns keeping the airplanes mechanically safe, fueled, and flight-ready;
• We will be returning to the use of 91-Octane automotive gas. This mitigates the added maintenance times related to unnecessarily using 100 Low-Lead, reducing down-time and again increasing the availability of our planes for your instructional use.
What we ask of you in return:
• Be a part of our team and make Eagle Sport, LLC your school of choice. We recognize there are many other Light Sport flight schools for you, however, our dedication to our planes and our instructors is value-add is immeasurable. Partner and trust in Eagle Sport, LLC, united we can build the best Light Sport school this country has ever seen!
• Lend a hand: We have done marketing by providing our aircraft for display at events such as Aviation Day at the State Capital, Car Shows, etc. If we have an event scheduled, help us and boost your client-prospects by getting in on the action! Participate, volunteer, and we certainly want to hear your ideas if there are other events which would be beneficial to participate in.
• Care for our planes, as if they were your own: While I will be personally washing and helping to maintain these aircrafts, I ask the same from you. Help keep them clean, timely report concerns or discrepancies, and provide feedback if we can be doing things more efficiently and effectively. By now, I demonstrated the difference I make when I am home and present. This company is my baby and our instructors (you) are my friends. I want the best for us and I want you to have pride in the birds you fly. Working together to keep up the appearance of the planes will boost our brand recognition and reputation, which will again bring clients to you.
• Lastly, attend our monthly Eagle Sport, LLC hosted instructor meetings. The point of these monthly meetings will be to have an open forum to address concerns, any upcoming changings, as well as swap tips to help promote teamwork and safety.
I believe the best strategy for long-term growth and success is through you. Keeping our instructors happy means our clients are happy; happy clients leads to happy feedback and more referrals. This is our chance to get back to what I started Eagle Sport to do in the first place, to provide a fun and affordable way for the masses to realize their dream of flight.
I want to personally thank you for your patience and understanding while Eagle Sport, LLC makes this transition.

Please contact me to discuss any questions or concerns regarding the transition at your leisure, I am always open to hearing your candid feedback and want to ensure you know you’re a valued partner.

SkyStriders LLC

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

nelson prosserWelcome one of our newest representatives, Bill Nelson, SkyStriders LLC, based out of Prosser, Washington.

Here is a personal message from Bill:

Happy New Year to all of you who fly ultralights and light sport aircraft in WA state, and in nearby locals.  My purpose in sending this email is to let you know about a new business that will hopefully soon be opening in Eastern Washington.  So if you’re on the Wet (West) side you can pretty much ignore this. 

 But for those in Central-Eastern Washington, North Eastern Oregon, and Western Idaho (especially the powered parachute and light sport airplane crowd) let me introduce myself.  My name is Bill Nelson, I live in Prosser, WA, and I am developing a new enterprise called Skystriders Light Sport Aviation LLC.  My plans are to provide light sport service, instruction, Discovery Flights and rides, annual inspections, flight reviews, and Six Chuter specific sales and service to current pilots and to those who would like to get into our sport.  Now if you already have someone providing such services for you please know that I’m not interested in trying to steal you away for myself.  But for new and prospective pilots who don’t have someone to provide any of these services, I am available. 

Now before you get too excited about a Six Chuter rep. in Eastern Washington, let me say that while I already do represent Six Chuter, have built my own SLSA trainer, and have been through the 120 hour training for Light Sport Mechanics down at Rainbow Aviation in CA, I still need to finish my CFI in PPC’s.  I have my CFI in Light Sport Airplanes so if you need instruction in your own plane, or a Biennial Flight Review, I can help.  But my hope is to center my business around PPC’s and that will require a PPC CFI and the add-on module for PPC’s at Rainbow (which I’ll get in May).  So this email, as much as anything, is just to let you know that such services are coming, and hopefully by this next summer I’ll be in full operation. 

Now if you want to know more about me and Skystriders, please take a moment to check out my web page at www.skystriders.com.  You can also email me at bill@skystriders.com.  And I especially would like to hear from you in a reply to this note if you would like for me to take you off this mailing list.  Or, if you know of any pilots who aren’t a member of EAA UL Chapter 127, and who might need my services, or if you know of someone who is interested in getting into our sport, I would appreciate your sending me their email, or you’re telling them about me and sending them to my web site.  One way or another I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you.

ELSA Kit Customer Update

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

A very nice note from Daniel McGregor who is currently assembling one of our Legend XLss “ELSA” (Experimental Light Sport Aircraft) kits. We remain one of the few manufacturers that offers our aircraft fully assembled and FAA certified, or as a factory Experimental Light Sport kit and now as a fully owner assembled Amateur Light Sport Kit (ABLSA)

Hi Doug. Just a note to let you know I received your email. Building the new Legend is incredible! The documentation and guidance is brilliant! You’ve made some great progress since S/N 3002! I can’t believe how comprehensive and professional the instructions are – great job.

Bottom line is I’m very pleased with the new PPC kit. Thank you, but I’m sure you’ve heard this before. If you don’t mind, I’ll send some pictures. Thanks so much!

Dan McGregor
