The forums purpose is to enhance and enable national & international Seaplane Pilot communication while at the same time being a relaxed & laid back domain for such discussions and networking. The major backbone of a good forum is it's quality of content & reach, not the amount of advertising links and product plugs placed. As the sites owner, I ask you to refrain from selling or advertising any specific product, or to lead members of this forum to sites that serve no other purpose than to sell them something. We are also not the right site for you to solicit investment opportunities for free. Technical information and sites that enable the fellow member to research and learn are however encouraged to enhance the quality of content & information.
