Sporty's Pilot Shop

Sporty’s Pilot Shop was founded in 1961 by a young flight instructor. From the very beginning, we focused on providing the best products backed by the best service. While Sporty’s operations have grown over the years, our commitment to the customer has remained the same. From products for the beginning flight student to the perfect headset for a 25,000-hour ATP, Sporty’s only sells the best products. ASA shares this same commitment to the customer and we are proud to offer their excellent products to our customers.

History of Sporty’s Pilot Shop

The very first product Sporty’s developed and sold was a small radio that could pick up airband transmissions. The idea was that student pilots could listen to other pilots on the radio to learn how to communicate. It worked. Product development continued to be strong as Sporty’s flight school was the perfect laboratory for innovating new products. Radios, training courses, bags, and kneeboards were all made for pilots by pilots. Today, Sporty’s remains a market leader in the development of new products.

In 1987, Sporty’s Academy was founded to develop aviation education courses and to produce videos that teach pilots everything they need to know about aviation. From weather and safety to technique and air traffic control, it’s all focused on real-world flying. Today, Sporty’s Academy is an FAA-approved Part 141 flight school and provides flight training for hundreds of students a year, including international students as well as for the University of Cincinnati’s Professional Pilot Training program.

Eastern Cincinnati Aviation (ECA), Sporty’s fixed base operator, provides flight instruction, rental aircraft, service and fuel sales for Clermont County/Sporty’s Airport. ECA also operates, maintains and manages all airport operations on behalf of Clermont County. Avionics installation and repairs are available on the airport through Sporty’s Cincinnati Avionics.

Sporty’s is one of the most respected names in aviation. With corporate activities in every segment of light aircraft from training to maintenance to aircraft sales along with hangar space for more than 150 aircraft, Sporty’s has evolved from the “World’s Largest Pilot Shop” to “More Than A Pilot Shop.”
