Seaplane Events Seaplane Events Coverage

Covering Seaplane Events Is A Challenge! The advantage of being the only up to date online only news magazine in the Waterflying world, brings news to our readers reliably, every day. Companies, Groups & Associations but also readers appreciate getting a timely response and coverage here.

We are able to bring these news much quicker than many other news outlets, with an average turnaround time of 30 minutes from receipt to publication. Our goal with this, is to establish as the site for fresh and genuine news from the Waterflying World.

With more than 250 articles published between January 2016 and July 2017, we have reached readers in 57 countries and we are doing quite well with our readers and followers.

The biggest current challenge for are Aviation Events, which tend to create short term social media fireworks, but then very quickly fade – in today’s social media landscape. Only 40% of our readers reach us through Facebook & Co, which shows just how many people love and follow this industry.

Goals For The 2018 Season

  • Airventure 2018 & Oshkosh Seaplane Base
  • The International Seaplane Fly-In In Greenville, Maine
  • European Events such as Biscarrosse, France & AERO Friedrichshafen

To do this, needs support from readers and our industry partners. To generate the funds for this next step, we will be implementing a voluntary subscription support feature and offer advertising to industry partners. We will not ever require payment from readers to learn more about Waterflying – as this goes against our mission of helping secure #TheFutureOfWaterflying with this website.

Of course costs money and lots of time. It could grow and get better, there are ideas from creating Reader Apps to actually providing live streaming from the larger events not everyone gets to visit. No matter how we turn it, we’ll need to find ways to do it.

In the near future, we will introduce what we have in mind to readers & potential event sponsors. Meanwhile, we appreciate your feedback & ideas via Email!
