Can you lead Planephd.com to be an industry game-changer?

Who are you? Passionate about aviation. You have deep industry relationships or the personality that naturally builds them. You are disciplined and relentless in chasing after big dreams.

Who are we? Planephd.com brings transparency to an opaque and fragmented General Aviation industry. Our mission is to empower the end-users, the aircraft owners and pilots. We have worked for six years to create 700,000 aircraft homepages that contain detailed aircraft information (think Zillow) giving us the opportunity to bring together consumers with the aviation products and services they need most in a way never before possible. The typical aviator has a net worth of over $1 million, of which we have over 50,000 users a month, and growing rapidly.

What needs to be done? We have the data. We have the aviators. Now we need to connect them with products and services. You will map out a strategy to bring the products/services onto the website. Potential business lines include aviation data services (to consumers or manufacturers), aircraft brokerage, financing and insurance, marketing and advertising, and targeted sales of products ranging from avionics to t-shirts, and services ranging from overhauls to flight instruction.

Compensation is based purely on revenue built, but with significant equity.
