Put the Donate button or first class thing back up again..I will throw some money at it and I am sure a lot of others will....maybe also its time to think about a subscription arrangement...setup a paypal for say 10 bucks a year with the recurring feature or something like that for everyone. I donate to a few via patreon and thats US$1.00 per month via paypal and that works well for them to keep content coming
""Charge members an annual fee equal to a magazine subscription or part thereof. ($20?)"" Unfortunately it needs to be more than that! I would envisage $10 per month, plus maintain the gold members! Those are people with spare cash the they can afford and which some of us struggle to.1/
Ian perhaps consider going wider to the whole aviation community via a crowd funding organisation. Us members can help make that fund request "go viral" posting it to all the existing aviation media be it online FB, Instagram print media orgs etc and to flying organisations such as AOPA, SAAA, RAAus etc. That's a lot of people I am sure don't know about the site.
With some of the funds place ads in aviation media to gain new members, site awareness benefits etc.
Charge members an annual fee equal to a magazine subscription or part thereof. ($20?)
Offer a 3 month trial fee of $5.
See if you can become a spot/ click fee agent for sales on all/any aviation shops, products (EFB memberships) /organisation and list links on your site. Don't know how hard this is to set up.
I am happy to contribute a membership fee or donation.
Keep your chin up and keep networking out to that big ocean of abundance, it usually bring rewards and support as you can see from this thread. .
