We hope you will consider advertising with us. As you can see, we have allocated advertising space in several locations. We have 125 x 125 pixel image ads in the right sidebar, banner ads in the header, and more ad space throughout the site. All our ad space is designed to allow for click-throughs to your site. Your advertising objectives may be to establish your brand or to target specific products to which visitors can click through directly and purchase from your site.
If you have a product or service geared specifically for glider pilots, then we’ve got the audience you’re looking for. Soaring Café offers ads in various placements on the site and each one allows click-throughs to your site. Advertisers on Soaring Café get the benefit of AdRotate, a valuable tool that provides the number of times ads are displayed and how many times a user clicks through to a site or product listing. By monitoring this data, you can determine the effectiveness of your ad and its return on investment.
Below is a table of our advertising rates.

*To place a Product Ad in the Right Sidebar at the $25 rate, you must also place an ad in one other zone.
We have the ability to constrain ad placement. For example, you may not want your ad to display on a page at the same time as you competitor's ad; so, we can create a rule that prevents you and your competitor(s) from displaying on the page in a zone at the same time. Restrictions will not be allowed which prevent other ads from displaying as often as your ad.
