The Glasair Aircraft Owners Association (GAOA) exists to promote the exchange and dissemination of information about the building, flying, purchasing, repairing, or modifying, or owning of Glasair, GlaStar and Sportsman homebuilt 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 (formerly Stoddard-Hamilton) 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 brand of airplanes who is current with their Glasair Aircraft Owners Association membership dues.
The Glasair Aircraft Owners Association is completely independent from Glasair Aviation.
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. GAOA forums rely 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.
While the administrator of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. All posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of their author and GAOA is not responsible for their content.
