Member Benefits for 2018
by Andrew Broom
Every week I call all of the new, renewing, and expired members to hold valuable conversations about CJP. These range from a simple “welcome to CJP and how can I help” to deep discussions around Citation-specific operations. Each time I talk to a member, I explore what would help them the most regarding owning and operating a Citation. The common themes include discounts, online resources, advocacy, events, education, and comradery. These are not mutually exclusive, and there is tremendous overlap within these categories.
At CJP we are continuously looking to provide additional member benefits. Those benefits are listed on the website (https://www.citationjetpilots.com/about/benefits). I am excited to expand this list with a new W&B app developed and maintained by CJP member Yannis Arvanitis. We will continue to look for additional ways to enhance your Citation experience.
The online forums are an amazing resource to help with everything from pressing operational or training questions, or to exploring on-airport dining recommendations. Last year was the most active for the CJP forums with the highest number of posts in a year, in a quarter (Q4), and in a month (December 2017). Please keep the conversations going and remain active. For those who ae just watching, make sure to contribute from time to time. When talking to members, especially those who are researching Citation ownership, about the forums, the common theme is that the advice from other owners and operators is extremely valuable.
You will also see that CJP is enhancing your education and comradery experiences through our events. This will continue as we fine tune our annual CJP Convention, and announce new locations for the CJP Regional Events. Additionally, we are developing a series of safety education events to help you better learn your aircraft and systems, while achieving components of the CJP Gold Standard Safety Award.
I look forward to seeing many of you at our events and talking to you on the phone as you renew your membership. Please watch your email as we announce the new and exciting opportunities developed by CJP.
