In this airborne VLOG, We go on a flight to Harnett Regional Airport and have a quick conversation on the GNX 375 and where it fits in the General Aviation market today.  We highlight some of the key feature's this piece of equipment has.  The small GPS navigators are great and economical as well! If your looking for the benefits of WaaS GPS such as being able to go 200' below minimums then this may be the answer for you! Check out our VLOG on the GNX 375 and let us know what you thing about these WaaS GPS Navigators! Stay Safe!

The FAA has reinstated the ADS-B Rebate, but the rebates are limited and time is running out as the program ends on October 11, 2019.  Are you eligible to receive it? There are several requirements that need to be met for you to receive your free $500 ADS-B Rebate.

We get question all the time on the Rebate.. "how do I do it?" "Does Sparkchasers handle it?" so I hope this helps you aviators out!

It’s late January but it’s still hard to believe we’re in 2018. It feels like the months fly by here at Sparkchasers and the next thing we know it will be time for Sun ‘n Fun 2018. We just had a company town hall meeting to begin the rollout of our plans for 2018 and to talk through our Mission, Vision, Passion, and core value statements. I’ve always thought of these statements are super important in the day to day culture, and when working on strategic planning.Have you watched our latest Vlog?

The Christmas season is upon us and I’m sure you are all getting the same questions I am getting. What do you want for Christmas? What do you think your brother would like? Personally, I don’t have a long list of things I want and most of the things I want would be hard for people to give me. However, after taking some time to think I have come up with two things I really want for Christmas….so somebody get to work on these two things!

Blue Light Special? Not So Much

Growing up I can remember Kmart’s infamous Blue Light Special deals and the announcements you would hear over the loudspeakers. Many thought this was the “cat’s meow” of all deals because you felt like you were getting something at rock bottom prices, but who was it benefiting? Was it a smart move for Kmart or an act of desperation? For most of my life, Kmart has been on life support financially with barely enough money to pay their employees and their bill, while still servicing their debt. Sound like a company you want to do business with?
