Sporty’s DVD Aims To Help Passengers Relax


Sporty’s Pilot Shop is offering a new “Introduction to Flying” DVD program that aims to help passengers feel more at ease in the cockpit. Passengers will learn about what the pilot is doing and why, and also will learn how to be helpful in the cockpit and how to cope with an emergency. The program is also available via download from the Sporty’s site. The company also said this week that its popular Flight Gear bags have been redesigned, with five different products each optimized for a specific type of pilot. Each bag is reinforced to hold up to 200 pounds, and prices have been cut. The company also announced the date for this year’s popular Open House event at their headquarters in Batavia, Ohio. The fly-in to Clermont County/Sporty’s Airport is set for Saturday, May 17.

Seminars, airport tours, industry exhibits, and hot dogs will be offered to all. The event, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., is free.
