Sport Shares program

Postby znurtdog » Sat Apr 21, 2012 5:40 pm

Hate to sound like an advertisement, but here is a new partnership program started by US Sport Aircraft, the importer of the Sport Cruiser by Czech Aircraft. It's a little hard to hear the understated Don Ayers, but is a cool program I think. It's already up and running in Dallas, Ft Pierce Fl and San Diego I believe. Here's the link to a vid. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xbbD55s ... kcsm6RUW0=

Sounds good but....

If you go to the web site, there's a "click here to email us and we'll call you back" link - there's no frequently asked questions, no details.

I smell a hard sell via telephone. I guess if you're 100% committed to doing this program, you'll appreciate the sales pitch, but one video with Super Dan and no other information published, I'll remain skeptical.

Oh...and one other thing (yes I'm a prude) - when you click on the Sport Shares link a huge photo of a really hot, really young, really blonde woman wearing a really short skirt sitting on the wing.

I dont know about everyone else's wives, but mine would not be very impressed by that.

Who knows...maybe statistically the market for these planes are 40+ year old males having their midlife crises and the subliminal message is get this airplane, get this girl. (if only it were true).

You're absolutely right. The web site needs major overhaul. No phone hard sell, in fact, unfortunately, at this point, probably the opposite. Thanks for your input.

These are decent people at Sport Shares program as far as I can tell. And there is plenty of info available with regard to ownership costs and how the program works. Download thew offered spreadsheet to calculate. Check it out for yourself. This is a great way for several people to own a brand new or low time SportCruiser for short money. Find a partner and get started. It's that simple. And it's a smart way to sell airplanes that many of us can't afford on our own. Thank you US Sportshares.
