What is PilotMarket?
PilotMarket.net is designed to advertise
aviation products and services. Anyone who is interested can advertise with us.
All listings must be aviation related and must be appropriate for the category
where they are listed. Our goal is to provide our visitors with quick access to
information about aviation related products and services. PilotMarket.net is a
modem friendly website. We provide the fastest page loading possible. In
developing PilotMarket.net, we analyzed the strong and weak points of hundreds
of aviation based websites. It has come to our attention that the aviation
community needs a website were it is possible to find any aviation related
product or service without having to filter out tons of irrelevant information.
Our goal is to bring you the maximum information in the minimum time. We will
continue developing our Site in order to reach these goals.
How do I place an
To advertise with us you must register first.
The registration form is a very simple one-page form designed to collect all the
necessary information about you and your company. Some of this information may
be used in your listings and will be disclosed to any visitor. If you are
concern about any of the information you submit to us, please read the
After submitting the registration page, you will be invited to log in using the

clicking the Log in button or link at the top of any page. Once you have
logged in, you will be taken to the My Profile page where you can place any

How do I make my listing
All forms are designed to make your ad look as
appropriate as possible. However, it is impossible to create a completely
universal form that will fit everyone's needs. Please use common sense if any
field seems inappropriate in the form. If you do not like the output of your ad,
you can always edit it. The bottom line, it is all about the presentation of
your product or service. Do not underestimate the importance of your ad's
appearance. If you think that just telling the world that you have Cessna 172
for sale is enough, you are wrong. To get a good price for your aircraft you
need ALL potential buyers to conceder it. Take advantage of the space we
provide. You are allowed to load up to 30 pictures. Use as many images as you
can, and make sure they are of the best quality you can get. There is no limit
to the space provided for you to describe your aircraft. Describe every single
detail in the manner you would like to read yourself. Please read the next
section for HTML tips.
What is HTML and how I can
Here are a few tips:
- If you want to start new line, type <br> at
the end of the sentence.
- If you want to start new paragraph, type <p>
at the end of the sentence.
- If you want to show some text in bold, place
the text between <b> and </b> tags.
- To show a bullet at the beginning of the
line, type <Li> before the sentence.
Please use tags only in the fields where
allowed. Do not use all CAPS.
To make any description field exactly like you
want it, with fonts, colors and pictures, you will have to use HTML tags. If you
are not familiar with HTML you may use any HTML editor (such as Microsoft Front
Page, which is part of Microsoft Office.) Using an HTML editor is easy. No
programming skills are needed. If you can create a Microsoft Word document, then
you can create an HTML Document in Microsoft Front Page. After you give your ad
the look you want in Microsoft Front Page just click the HTML button on the
bottom of the screen, copy all codes and paste them into the description field
of the proper PilotMarket form. If you used pictures in your description (do not
mistake this with the pictures you are allowed to upload) please read the next
How can I use a logo and
pictures in my listing?
You are allowed to advertise with your logo,
which you can submit either during registration or later, on the [change
personal and contact information] page. You are allowed to place one
picture with any product you are advertising, and up to 30 pictures for every
aircraft you advertise. There are no pictures allowed for services, however, you
may advertise as many pictures as you want in the body of an ad by using HTML.
(please refer to the previous paragraph with questions How to use HTML.) To
place pictures using HTML, you will need storage for them somewhere on the Web,
or on your own website. There are lots of companies who offer storage space for
a very small fee. For example: www.fotki.com.
Simply copy the picture from your storage place on the web and paste it to your
listing while preparing it in Microsoft Front Page. Please respect privacy and
copyrights if you are using pictures placed somewhere else on the web.
Remember: you assume all responsibility for copyright violations in your
listings. If you need help to prepare your ad in HTML format, please do not
hesitate to ask. We are here to help.
How can I advertise my
Aircraft as a featured aircraft?
It's very easy. Any aircraft can be advertised
as a featured aircraft if a regular listing already exists and at least one
picture of the aircraft is uploaded. In My Profile page click on the link: [
Sell your aircraft fast!!! Place it as a FEATURED!!!
] A list of all your aircraft listings will be opened. Check the boxes for each
aircraft you would like to advertise as featured aircraft and press the "submit
order" button. You will be given a choice of payment methods using either your
credit card or check. Your aircraft will appear as a featured aircraft the same
day we receive your payment.
There is no link on My
PilotMarket Page to the Aircraft for sale form. How do I get there?
There is a link, [advertise
your aircraft here], in every aircraft category. For example, if you
would like to advertise Cessna 172, click on Aircraft for sale on the
Home Page or in My Profile Page. Then click on Single engine
Piston. A list of all Single engine aircraft will open. Now click on
Cessna 172. A list of all Cessna 172 will open. At the top of the list
next to the heading, you will see the link: [advertise
your aircraft here]. Click on it and, if you are logged in, the
appropriate form will be open. If you are not logged in, you will be taken to
the log in page first.
