On 4/21/2010 the International Seaplane Pilot Forum launched off my website. I am in the process of securing a domain for it to make it easier to find for pilots. After my resignation as SPA Forum Administrator, I made the decision to offer a standalone, easy to use forum that could be used as a platform for seaplane pilots to congregate and communicate seaplane specific topics. The forum is launched in a non competitive, non political environment that offers greater flexibility and the opportunity for members to network. It will have a “sponsors spotlight” that enables members to show their fellow members what they do and why they do it. People buy from people they know, and print advertising is quickly becoming a thing of the past. The forum is set up in several categories, which makes browsing for interesting content easier and tailors more to the target audience. There are several categories already pre-selected – however members will have their say in how categories will be used. Even though our industry is an extremely hard place to find employment in, there is a Seaplane Employment section. Further, features include a WTB/ For Sale section. The goal is to keep the forum from requiring advertising in the form of google ads, so supporters and sponsors are cordially invited and much appreciated.
The current plan is to offer industry support sections that can be used by seaplane related businesses to attend to their customers. My hope is that the new forum will be perceived as non competitive with other forum spots across the web. Please sign up today!
