Terms of Service (TOS)

The Glasair Aircraft Owners Association (GAOA) exists to promote the exchange and dissemination of information about the building, flying, purchasing, repairing, or owning of Glasair (formerly Stoddard-Hamilton) and Symphony aircraft between builders, owners, and enthusiasts. GAOA and its website and forum in no way take the place of your communication with Glasair Aviation, the manufacturer of Glasair brand aircraft kits. We do, however, expect the forum to act as an addition to the other communication channels, and allow all members to communicate in a fast, easy, and timely manner about any relevant topic, without restriction or moderation.

GAOA website and its resources are available to anyone interested in the Glasair, Symphony, and Advanced Aero brands of airplanes who is current with their Glasair Aircraft Owners Association membership dues.

The Glasair Aircraft Owners Association is completely independent from Glasair Aviation.

Forum Etiquette

All GAOA members will try to help other members whenever they can, and verify the accuracy of the information they share in a reasonable manner. The GAOA forum relies on trust and honesty.

GAOA reserves the right to remove any member at any time for violating the TOS or Etiquette rules. Anyone removed will have the prorated balance of their subscription fee returned upon request.

Private email received by a GAOA member should at no time be posted in GAOA forums unless prior permission is granted by the author.

To encourage the responsible and civil use of the forums and to better allow other members to know the author of a posting, anonymous postings or user names that obscure the identity of the author will be not allowed.

Suppliers are encouraged to publicize the fact of availability of relevant products, but sales pitches are discouraged.

Suppliers may not disparage competitors or their products in postings, nor may other members do it by proxy for the supplier. This does not restrict factual discussion about parts, services, or safety issues. Anyone may state facts on which they have first-hand knowledge or official notification regarding purchased items from a supplier.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented, or other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned. Unless directly related to aviation, political and religious discussions shall be avoided. The webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time as they see fit.

General Notice

Forum FAQ

Purchases and Returns

For any problems with your order or membership, contact us via email.


Memberships run for one year and will auto-renew unless you cancel before the renewal date listed on your order, or switch to manual renewal in your account dashboard.

Physical Goods

We do not keep an inventory of most of the products sold through the web store – items are made to order by a 3rd party vendor and shipped directly to the buyer. Please select your clothing sizes carefully using the size charts in each product’s description. Returns of undamaged goods are discouraged because we don’t have a convenient way to put them up for sale again, but if you must return an item, please contact us via email first. Shipping costs and taxes are not refundable and the buyer is responsible for shipping the item to GAOA. Returns will incur a 30% restocking fee.
