We received the following email regarding multiple airpark homes. My answer is below.
Questions: Could you please, help me with:
- Do you think that Americans already living in a Fly-In Community could be interested, as a secondary home, to buy one in Canada?
- How popular is it to have a home in more than one Fly-In Community? Is that the exception?
- How would you promote a new Fly-In Community?
Answer: Thanks for inquiring about secondary fly-in homes in Canada.
There is a certain number of Americans who live in residential airparks and other pilots who don’t live in airparks who probably would be interested and financially able to acquire a second home in Canada, particularly on an airpark. I think the primary group of interested pilots are ones who enjoy fishing and hunting and could find a place on or near a lake or other somewhat remote area where they could enjoy their sporting activities.
I think the idea of having a second home in a fly-in community is very popular, but I don’t think there is a large segment of the aviation community that currently enjoys such a lifestyle. In other words, I think it is the exception.
Finally, promoting a new fly-in community is relatively easy. We constantly print stories about such projects and our advertising section lists numerous fly-in communities.
