Q: I don’t have an Aerostar. Can I still join?
A: Of course. We have lots of members who are just checking Aerostars out or looking to buy an Aerostar. Some just fly them. Some just want to learn more about them. Some have become a member and then decided not to buy one. We think they made the correct decision by learning, weighing their options and making a decision that is right for them – a win-win for everyone. The Aerostar is not for everyone.
Q: What is the right Aerostar for me?
A: That depend on a lot of things. Read the “What’s Your Mission?” article By Executive Director Ken Bacon to understand more.
Q: Why is your Forum closed to guests?
A: The Aerostar Mart is open to guests. The rest of the Forums are closed as a service to our members. There is no advertising and it is not really a social forum. The purpose is to provide quick and accurate information to our members. The forum is very effective at doing so. We do not have the problem of disruptive, inaccurate and rude posters (also known as trolls) in our forums.
