There are reports that Touch 'n Go Aviation Warehouse, Carp Airport's pilot supply shop has closed its doors.
One local pilot reported on 10 February 2012 "Was at Carp today and touch n go aviation has gone out of business according to sign on the door".
Indeed their website is returning "The server at www.touchngoaviation.com can't be found because the DNS look-up failed."
Owned by local retailer and pilot Chad Wilton, Touch 'n Go opened to great fanfare on 26 September 2009. Wilton purchased the entire hangar, turned the ground side into the new store and used the rest for aircraft storage.
The store boasted a large square footage of retail space and even a pilot lounge in the back. If indeed the business is closed it leaves a hole in the local aviation community that will be hard to fill.
