Promoting General Aviation

Day -12: More help for us and more gifts for you

Giveaway giftThe world is small… Just after writing yesterday’s post about press releases, I sent a draft of the one I prepared for our stop in Baton Rouge to John, who is coordinating our stop there. And what did he tell me? His fiancĂ©e Katy (by the way, congrats on getting engaged) has some experience with non-profit organizations and writing press releases for major papers. And because John talked to her incessantly about our project for the past year, she knows everything about it and is willing to review our press releases. One more demonstration that General Aviation is a great community creating links, solidarity and generosity. Welcome aboard Katy, and thanks a lot for your help.

With our departure date approaching we’re also finalizing deals with our sponsors. It’s a great feeling to settle deals with sponsors, some of them following us from the very beginning of the project. Many are true aviation enthusiasts and some became real friends. It’s like collecting the fruits of one year of promotion effort… and this is all for you, generous patrons who bought or will buy miles to support our project.

We have great giveaways gifts and also negotiated discount rates by some very cool sponsors… We’ll announce all of that at once, shortly before our departure. Yes, this is teasing. Be sure that being a patron, even by buying a single mile at $3.75 will be a great opportunity. You can buy miles today - we won’t forget anybody!
