Advertise With Me - Thank You, But No Thanks....

FLAPS 2 APPROACH in Aviation News

When I began this website, I had little insight that the site would be as regularly visited as it is; last month the site received 152,555 visits from different ISP addresses not including robots & spiders.

Can We Advertise With You....

Two companies that produce flight simulation merchandise have contacted me asking that I write about their products and actively support heir products on this website.  In return for my favourable response, the company will give me free products and a percentage of any sales that are generated from my website.

'Money is money' and everyone can probably always use a little more.  The funds generated will probably cover the annual cost of hosting this site and leave a little left over to pay the power bill…

I have thought about the offer; however, have decided to not support or promote any company for the sake of profit… 

Flaps2Approach was developed to document the building progress of a Boeing 737-800 simulator, and evolved to include technical and theoretical information. If I commercialise this website, the unbiased nature of the site will be compromised and the site will become another 'megahorn' promoting 'coloured beads and trinkets'.  To alter the style, flare and direction of the site from essentially what is a hobby-based website to that of market-orientated site, does not sit favourably with me; therefore, the website will continue along the same footing.

I believe it’s important not to be swayed by business (and money) and to continue to 'tell it as it is', or at least how I see it…

I dislike Advertising Pop-Ups....

I dislike the blanket-style of unwanted advertising that many websites have, whether it is generated by google or as adverts for products from particular companies, and  I certainly do not want to add to this advertising glut.

I hope you agree with this philosophy and continue to enjoy the website and its content.   'Blue Skys',    F2A
