Our main focus audience is not only the Aviation Professional but also the Non-Aviation Professional, the guy wanting to become a pilot, The Guy next to the runway at an airport doing some plane spotting, The Guy with his PPL that just enjoy flying, and the guy attending an Airshow!

The Business we would like to advertise on our page are Flight schools, Aviation Event organizers, businesses doing flips and Scenic flights, Charters, Hobby shops and Aviation Shops, Flight and Aviation Organizations, Accommodation offers at Event Venues and Airlines.
