News Flash: The Internet is changing the way we live our lives.
OK, so that is not news. And this post is not, per se, aviation related. However, it makes an interesting point that applies to the airfield and everywhere else.
Wired.com brings us news as YouTube celebrates its fifth anniversary that the video site dwarfs the number of people watching network television in prime time.
The article above goes as far as to wonder whether YouTube will replace broadcast and subscription TV altogether in coming years. Considering its impact in a half decade, it is an idea that is not out of reach.
As mobile entertainment and communications platforms continue to morph with technology, iPads, Droid phones and Skype, it changes the way we do business.
For instance, we now have a feature so someone interested in buying an aircraft can send a text message to the person selling it. Clients are meeting face to face via web cam.
Information is more accessible and moves much more freely. Just as the aircraft revolutionized business and personal travel in its golden age, information technology continues to do the same today.
It is important to make sure your business is visible in the ever-growing 21st Century marketplace.
We have delivered many tools over the years to help aircraft sales departments and FBOs do just that, and we are hard at work creating even more such platforms.
As a destination for pilots and flight staffs to find aviation information, we are a high-value target for anyone in the industry to utilize to get seen.
Register for a My Flight Department account, list your business in our aviation directory, advertise with us.
Weigh in below and let us know what you like about what we have done with the site, and what you would like to see.
Thanks again for reading.
