We received the following email regarding multiple airpark homes. My answer is below.
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 by 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?
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.
I’m copying our advertising manager, Larry Price, who can assist you in preparing an advertising budget for your project. Please send us details about the community, whether it is currently existing or in planning, so we can add it to our list in the appropriate category.
Please keep in touch.
