Local pilot and business owner Chad Wilton is moving ahead with his plans to open a pilot supply shop in the Roots hangar at Carp Airport, just west of Ottawa, Ontario.
He sends this report on his plans:
“The goal is to be a complete pilot supply store for both pilots and people looking to buy gifts for pilots. We will be carrying a wide range of products including charts, oil, handheld GPS units, novelty items, clothes, headsets, artwork, books, puzzles, and much more.
“As a consumer I found it very frustrating to be ordering products online as there was no way to try the product before I bought them. I had to rely on descriptions and on more than one occasion what I thought I had ordered was not exactly what showed up at my door. Also there were times where I needed a chart ASAP for a flight and didn't have time to wait for it to be shipped to me. This is the reason I started Touch N' Go Aviation to be another option for pilots in this area who need aviation supplies.
“We are located right beside the new FBO at the Carp (CYRP) airport and will be open Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. Our grand opening is Saturday, Sept. 26. Any support your members could give us would be greatly appreciated.”
