New Partners Join in Supporting CJP

By CJP Executive Director Andrew Broom

CJP2016-Andrew Broom-LinkedIn-0916As we prepare for what promises to be a tremendously entertaining and successful CJP Convention next month in Phoenix, it’s important that we recognize the support and confidence expressed by those companies that have chosen to become CJP partners. Without their gracious support, this association would not be the vibrant and influential group that CJP has become.

Among the many objectives I have as Executive Director is to continually seek new partners to join our association. At this writing, I am grateful to count 35 respected and admired companies and organizations as CJP partners, all of whom have extremely close ties to the Citation owner/operator community. This includes 14 new partners that over the past year have agreed to join in supporting our organization:

  • Gogo Business Aviation, a leading provider of in-flight connectivity solutions that increase the productivity, safety, and enjoyment of the business aviation travel experience.
  • *

  • Executive Aircraft Maintenance, your complete source for quality General Aviation Maintenance, Installations, Service and Support
  • Flight Research provides upset training in all types of aircraft, and a CJP-specific Citation upset training course.
  • *

  • Aeromania, a provider of in-aircraft Citation flight training
  • Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), the largest advocacy group dedicated to the interests and concerns of the general aviation (GA) community
  • Concorde Aircraft Batteries, providing electrical power in many of our Citations
  • Derrick Schmidt Aviation, offering Citation jet acceptance, mentoring, and management services
  • DFW Instrument, providing flight line maintenance and avionics sales and support
  • Fixed-base operator Eagle Aviation at Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE)
  • Gulf Coast Avionics, a leading supplier of avionics, pilot supplies and aircraft services
  • MedAire, a business aviation medical, safety, and security support provider
  • Partners in Aviation, experts in arranging aircraft co-ownership opportunities to reduce aircraft acquisition and operating costs
  • SierraTrax, providing a simple, intuitive, and affordable maintenance tracking solution
  • SkyBlue Jet Aviation, offering initial & recurrent training for the Citation 500, 510, 525 Series and also offering single pilot exemptions
  • *

    Of course, just as CJP relies on the welcome support from our Partners, these companies and organizations also depend on support from the Citation community. I encourage all CJP Members to reach out to all of our partners to learn more about their products and services.

    These new companies join a phenomenal group of CJP partners including Textron Aviation, FlightSafety International, Garmin, jetAVIVA, Rockwell Collins, TRU Simulation + Training, Tamarack Aerospace, Dsvis Estates, Gogo Business Aviation, Alpine Airpark Refuge, BendixKing, Executive Aircraft Maintenance, Flight Research, Williams International, 1st Source Bank, Aviation Dynamics, CAE, Duncan Aviation, Eagle Creek Aviation Services, Heads Up Technologies, Ladd Gardner Aviation Insurance, and PNC Aviation Finance. Links to all of their websites can be found here.

    In fact, you will be able to see all the CJP partners during next month’s CJP Convention. During breakfast, or the breaks, or at lunch, you will have opportunities to hear the latest from all our partners and at least 15 more vendors. Many of these companies will also be at the social events, providing additional opportunities for you to meet with them.

    On behalf of CJP’s Board of Directors and all our Members, I thank our valued partners for their work in ensuring that CJP remains the preeminent owner/operator organization throughout the light jet segment, and across the entire aviation industry. I hope you’ll join me next month in Phoenix, where we may all express our thanks to these companies and organizations face-to-face.
