Sporty’s Dealer Program
Sporty’s knows the challenges of operating a flight school and FBO in today’s economic climate. That’s why we have designed our dealer program, to offer high quality pilot supplies and educational products at an excellent value. Whether you’re looking for aviation curriculum, which can be found in Sporty’s offering of DVDs and our Complete Flight Training Courses or a complete line of pilot supplies, including Flight Gear Bags, kneeboards, logbooks and more, Sporty’s has the products to help your students and your business.
Sporty’s Dealer Program offers convenient on-line ordering and since we stock every item we sell, you can be assured your orders will arrive within a few days after you place the order.
If you're an FBO or Flight School, we encourage you to fill out an application to become a Sporty’s dealer so your students will have access to many of the great products offered by Sporty’s, right at your airport location.

Minimum Resale Price Policy
In an effort to protect the long-term interest of Sporty’s, its dealers and customers, Sporty’s has adopted a Minimum Resale Price Policy.
The minimum resale price for each product identified by Sporty’s is the retail price that appears on Sporty’s web site, www.sportys.com. This Policy has been unilaterally adopted by Sporty’s and it will be enforced strictly and uniformly. Although resellers remain free to establish their own resale prices, Sporty’s will, without assuming any liability, cancel all orders and indefinitely refuse to accept any new orders from any reseller immediately following Sporty’s verification to its satisfaction that such reseller has advertised, offered, or sold any of the identified products at a net retail sales price less than the minimum retail price described above.
Sporty’s may modify its Minimum Resale Price Policy at any time. Sporty’s will not discuss any conditions of acceptance related to this Policy. The Policy is non-negotiable and will not be altered for any reseller. In addition, Sporty’s neither solicits, nor will it accept, any assurance of compliance with this Policy. Nothing in its Policy shall constitute an agreement between Sporty’s and any reseller that the reseller will comply with this Policy. Sporty’s sales personnel have no authority to modify or grant exceptions to this Policy. All questions regarding the interpretation of this Policy must be directed to the Distribution Policy Coordinator at 513.735.9100, ext. 338.
Note: FAA charts are specifically excluded from this minimum resale price policy.
Sporty's will accept dealer returns for refund or exchange for a period of 60 days after purchase. Merchandise must be in resaleable condition. FAA charts are not returnable.
