Sellers! Beware of Scams using Paypal

There has been an increase in the occurrences of purchase scams using Paypal across the internet. The signs may be similar to other purchase scams: poor English, asking for information that's already in the ad, insisting on getting your PayPal account information before other details are covered, an "agent" to pick up the item, etc.

"A Must-Read for Every Pilot" 

Understanding Air France 447 by Bill Palmer

An in-depth and comprehensive coverage of Air France 447, an Airbus A330 that crashed after the loss of airspeed indications on the morning of June 1, 2009, killing all 228 persons on board.
Hailed as a "must read for any pilot" by numerous reviewers, the book details the important lessons to be learned from this accident for everyone that flies.

Written by A330 Captain (and Glidersource developer), Bill Palmer, this book details the actions of the crew, how they failed to understand and control the problem and why. You'll learn about aspects of weather, international communications, high speed-high altitude aerodynamics, fly-by-wire technology, and the part they all played, all in easy to understand terms. Find out how this airplane went from cruise at 35,000 feet to crashing in the ocean below in only 4 minutes—triggered only by a loss of airspeed indications!

What if I already have my item listed on another site?

Successful advertisers across many industries place their ads in many places, not just one. All soaring related ads are welcome here. But, a prominent glider classified provider does not appreciate this effort for glider and motorglider ads. Check with your current ad carrier to see if he requires exclusive handling of your ad. I think competition improves the market. What do you think?
