General aviation is doomed by the states and commercial aviation decision!

To the best of my knowledge the worldwide situation is pretty much similar, and General Aviation is loosing not only future pilots by not acheiving new student pilots, but also loosing present pilots (some that also work as liner pilots in real life) to the microlight and ultralight (recreational) world.

And it is right to happen so, for three main reasons.

The most important of all is people want to fly, but: NOT AT ANY COST, so they get oriented towards flight machines of similar or even better performances than the GA machines, just registered in a "inferiour" class. (who the heck decides what is inferiour or superior??)

They know they are loosing their hard worked PPL and all that pile of cash that went down the drain to get it, but in between not flying or accepting a loss to can fly, one makes a choice, and flyes!

Second reason is the bureaucracy involved in GA flight, it's simply overwhelming and extremely expensive.

Dudes calculated that for every flight hour they waste some 150 euro of paperwork, permits, telephones, and nerves, plus 3 hours of headache.

One must be nuts to waste 3 hours of his life just to take a flight of 1 hour out of which 20 to 30 minutes waiting on the runway for the clear!

The third reason is the price involved in purchase, manttainance and operational costs of an G A airplane.

A Piper GA plane that is so basic even some bicycles are more sophisticated, costs "used" more than a brand new Microlight plane, burns lots of more fuel per hour, requires lots of more paperwork to have it, fly it, and repair it, not to mention all the ground time wasted around it for nothing but mere bureacracy issues.

An Ultralight, microlight (recreational) that has more instruments, and more elctronics than the first "moon module" that went up there and came back safely, operates at 20% of the hourly costs, mantainance is at 30% or less of GA (just do it yourself), you fly it whenever you see fit, no stupid bureacracy and limitations.

Want more? Ask any pilot, the GA industry is about to die, worldwide, the States is killing it.

I wrote it in my book and I am not afraid to say it out loud, there is an worldwide interes to kill GA to free the airports for the comercial liners, whilst the ultralight world is not using their structures, so it has no problem.

Give the people what they want!

So want do those people want?


To be spammed, naturally! Or not?

You know what you want, to sell your product / service, to make a buck, to pay your bills, to make a living bottom line, but them?

You might be surprised but they are not much different from you, they want the same things.

You don't want to be spammed, nor do them.
You want to make a living, so do they!

Untill here is all clear, but apart this vicous circle where all want to spam and nobody wants to be spammed, what else they want?

Some want to simply talk about issues next to their heart, some want to share knowledge and would charge nothing, just to be sure they can deliver, and moslty is a qulaity knowledge, you'd better pay attention because if you don't later on you will pay money for the same thing.

Some are looking for informations, some go window shoping just to see how much more things cost here rather than there, after al it costs them nothing to look.

Some are looking for former friends and coleagues, some are digging for their roots, and some are just digging, for the sake of digging.

Would they buy your product?

Most likely yes, but not from you.

You pissed them off by spamming them, that's why.

They might pay more to their shop beneath the house, but at least they are buddy buddy with the dude since forever, and he never spammed them.

So how can you sell than?

Easy, do what the dudes under the house did to have them for a client, a nice smile, a good word, some advice, a tip. Never sell them your product.

One day they might wake up and say: I need widgets!

It's Sunday, the mall is closed, the nighbour store is closed and the owner is gone fishing, but... there was this dude online that always had a good word for me, a tip, something, and if I recall he has a store ore similar, and also sells widgets.

Let me check if he delivers on sundays too?

Holly smock he does so!

And he buys the widget, downloads it, you earned 2 cents, and MADE A FIRST SALE TO THE DUDE!

My first sale to a multinational GSM telephones company brought me 22 cents profit, but I broke the ice!

They bought from me for years, and when I changed company they followed me, my former employer did all he could to keep them, but they followed me, because I never spammed them.

Give the people what they want, give them a little respect, and some room so they can breathe!

Don't focus on the bogus!

Internet is a whole new world.

Some find green pastures, some simply get lost.

Many found a way to make a living in here, and that's ok since making a living is essential, even in a new world, but it depends how.

Old world, new world, same thing, there are good people and bad people.

So some just throw in a pyramid scheme to make a buck.

There is nothing you can make use of, you pay "X" dudes above you in the cheme to let you in (and the pyramid owner takes a small percentuall of it) and than fight hard to fool as many as you can to buy entry rights from you, so you can get rich (and the pyramid owner retains some percentuall of it for him)

What is that you sell?

Thi is a reciprocating croockery, where you knowingly of the theft accept to be ripped so you can jon the game and ripp off others.

Sometiems there is a product/service behind this offer, mostly you can have the same for free online, but they charge huge ammounts to let you in, and you must find those willing to buy entrance from you.

What's the difference from the above scheme?

Nothing in substance, just better covering, and they call it MLM.

Than there is the real working dudes that sell some real product/service for some real prices, and deliver personally.

And they rely on word of mouth, computerised mouth.

Social networking, and that's a jungle, many forests, meadows, and trees, lots of trees.

Some folks can't see the forest because of the trees.

So what do you do in there? You spam, BAM...

To whom? Followers naturally!

How do you gain followers? You buy them up.

Those gentile dudes that offer you to have hundreds of followers each day joining your network so you can spam them. Just click the link and buy the list, and you will be aded to the list.

You spam them and they spam you.

But who reads your messages? Nobody obviously, it's a game of numbers, rather a dialogue of deafs, all yell nobody hears.

The numbers are made by the dude that sold you the list, and sold you into the list.

Take my word I never bought into such thing, I don't have millions of bogus followers, just a few thouands across all the networks I am acitve in, real folks that joined me in more than 5 years, one by one, because they provide and seek for value. Not numbers.

There was some one couple of thousands of years ago this great networker. He has being followed by thousands and thousands. By feet, naturally, there were no computers than.

They followed Him for the VALUE in his words.

And the spammers?

Well they felt threatened by Him and made in scuh a manner to have him LEGALLY crucifyed. It was subminating their croocked market system, just like I do now.

Lucky me I network from a computer, at maximum they can ban me or "unfriend" me out.

And as 2 K yers ago, networking, the real networking, is in seek of giving and scouting for VALUES.

The values we exchange in my network are ideas, tips, clients, and we pass some jobs to eachother, or order from eachother.

If one needs a client, and by mistake I find someone that needs that product/service, I refer it to my networker, same with a job, or else. No charge, nothing.

I know for sure somebodye else in my network when will have a chance will do the sme for me.

It's called Synergetic Simbiosys. Or briefely SOCIETY.

This is why they are called social netwoks, otherwise they should cal them spam networks.

Wanna join me?

What is your worth?

What is the VALUE you are giving away around?

Do you have the time and the patience that this value returns to you another value in time?

For that's the way it is.
