Donation time, please!

It's that time again - to call for donations to keep this place running. I just renewed the domain hosting for three more years, and this week I will rent new server space and address for Teamspeak that will allow for more slots so we won't have to limit people in the room during group flights this year.

We had some funds left over from the last round, but they've now been used and after the domain renewal we're back in the hole. If you get enjoyment from Mountain Air, please consider donating. If all active pilots would donate as little as $5, that would be enough to keep us running for about three to four more years.

If you would like to help, click on the "Donate" button that appears on the footer section of almost all our web pages. That should bring up a PayPal link that will accept PayPal and all major credit cards. Thanks all!

Edit 8/5 - We're shooting for a goal of $150. This will pay the current deficit and give us about a year of cushion.


The thermometer below shows our progress as of 8/10 - We have EXCEEDED our goal in just a week!

A big thank you to Gary for his time and resources. Without his input MountainAir would be just another waste of time. That being said I challenge every member of this airline to donate whatever is possible of your hard earned money. If everyone donated .25 cents it would come to 650 dollars for our airline. Once again thanks Gary.

Thanks to all who stepped up to the call for donations! We've exceeded our goal in just a week. As I've known all along, Mountain Air pilots are the best around. Thank you all!

The donation button always stays on the footer of our website, so anyone who wants to make a small donation throughout the year can do so. If they do trickle in throughout the year, we may not need to have a new call for donations for a couple years!
