I’m excited to announce some major changes for eHangar.com in the very near future that will fulfill its original website vision!

When I first started eHangar.com in 2003, the original concept was to make it a site for “everything aviation”. As it was technically too challenging to make it so, I decided to focus on one area initially to establish the site, and that was aviation art.

Even while eHangar.com grew over the years and became the foremost aviation art site in the world, I had always thought of ways to increase its membership base beyond aviation art enthusiasts, into the general aviation world.

Today, we have the mature technology of social networking sites, and so I have decided to convert eHangar.com into the social network site for everything aviation. Yes, I know many aviation enthusiasts are already using Facebook, but I believe a social network site specifically for aviation has real potential.

Who wants to wade through dozens of posts of babies, pets and birthday parties before you chance upon a photograph of a Spitfire or some other aircraft? What if every post was of an aviation nature, by people who are enthusiasts, collectors, pilots, crew, etc, from every sector of aviation, past, present and future?

As a social networking site, I believe eHangar.com will finally be able to fulfill its original vision and mission to be “Everything Aviation Under One Roof”.

What do you think? Would you welcome the chance to be a part of a global aviation social network where everyone is of like mind and focus? Let me know what you think about these plans in the comments section below or in the eHangar forum.

I think this is an excellent concept to test out Sunny.  While Facebook is a good sharing and discussion platform, things tend to get lost because there are so many different dialogs on so many different topics.  And most of my Facebook friends couldn’t give a rat’s petuti about my thoughts on a specific artist, or collecting prints vs originals, etc etc etc.  A social networking platform dedicated to aviation art creation and collecting has a lot of potential for some extended and interesting conversations.  So, give it a shot, and sign me up!

Thank you for your reply on this, Gus. 

Actually, you may have misunderstood me. The intent is to convert eHangar to a social network platform, from the current blog and forum format. However, the site will position itself as the social network for all things aviation; not only aviation art. eHangar will not be an Aviation Art Social Network per se, but will be the Aviation Social Network, which would welcome all aviation-related posts, including aviation art.

Of course, unlike Facebook, we will still have the forum, which will be re-structured to include on a bigger scale aviation topics in general. The original aviation art forum posts all the way from 2003 will still be accessible always within this forum, within the aviation art section. Also, unlike Facebook, we will also have other sections including a marketplace or classifieds site, and other features which I will add later on, such as exclusive online stores, if there is sufficient interest or demand for them from members.

This being the case, would you (and other current eHangar members) still be for it?
