Here are answers to a few of the question that you may have:
Q: Why did Internet Brands buy Airline Pilot Central?
A: Internet Brands is a leading Internet media company that operates community websites in a variety of categories. One category that they have just started to build out is that of careers i.e. sites that have communities that focus on employment and networking within a particular career.
Airline Pilot Central fits into this category, as it offers outstanding advice and support about the aviation industry, issues that are affecting the industry and ways to improve ones career in the industry.
Q: Why did Airline Pilot Central agree to the acquisition?
A: Since 2005, APC has grown from a single page site to a destination web portal for pilot's seeking career information and networking opportunities. The explosive growth and success of the site has challenged the founder's ability to meet user demand. The acquisition of APC by Internet Brands allows us to shed the IT management and funding. Instead, we'll now be able to focus on website development and concentrate on providing relevant updated content to pilots.
Q: Will Airline Pilot Central become part of another Internet Brand site?
A: No. Internet Brands plans to keep APC a separate, thriving site and to continue expanding its content, community and traffic.
Q: How will the acquisition help Airline Pilot Central?
A: The main benefit will be having more infrastructure and technology resources behind the site. Better servers and hardware will mean better performance for the site and admin tools.. The additional technology resources will also mean faster bug-fixes, quicker turnaround on site changes and more frequent updates in site software.
Q: Will my Airline Pilot Forums log-in or password change?
A: No you will still access the forums as you always have
