Will Cover Homebuilts From Sheet Metal To Composite
Aircraft Spruce & Specialty
Company, an aviation supply house, has renewed its sponsorship of
the Experimental Aircraft Association's SportAir Workshops for
another year. The one-, two- and three-day hands-on training
courses are held nationwide, teaching necessary skills and
techniques to build a safe aircraft.
With the increasing interest in homebuilt aircraft throughout
the nation, EAA's SportAir Workshops, which cover all the key areas
of aircraft building like sheet metal, fabric and composite
construction, have become an essential resource for builders.
"EAA is pleased that Aircraft Spruce is renewing their
sponsorship this year, continuing a partnership we began in 2000,"
said Charlie Becker, EAA's Director of Aviation Information
Services. "Our combined efforts will continue to grow the homebuilt
Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co. offers over 35,000 products
ranging from airplane parts to pilot supplies. The Company's
ability to serve aviation seekers of all stages has combined with
the EAA to recognize the importance of pursuing a hobby in
homebuilt aircraft, while ensuring safety and best results.
"Aircraft Spruce recognizes that EAA's SportAir Workshops
provide the knowledge and training that people need to start
building an aircraft and we want to support that effort," said Jim
Irwin, President of Aircraft Spruce & Specialty.
