Improved use of the Internet and paperless solutions is essential, but most AMEs underestimate the time and complexity involved with setting up and promoting a web site. FlightPhysical.com encourages AMEs to Grow at your own pace. Our Internet Professionals are also pilots and AMEs. We speak your language, and we're here to guide you through each upgrade...on your schedule. This Table presents the different levels of web sites you can maintain. All Designated AMEs have a "Basic" package by default. Compared to a yellow pages ad, the Web is a great value! Depending on your interest and the regional demand for Internet technology in your locale, you will probably want to start by customizing your free site then decide when its right for you to upgrade in the future. AMEs are a diverse group of physicians in multiple practice types. We are here to help you decide which web options are best as your practice joins the modern trend of increasing Internet Presence.
|Option #1: Basic Web Site. Everyone has this for free by default unless they have outstanding, unpaid charges. This is your basic web listing that flightphysical.com will maintain and host for you. Click here for an explanation of domain hosting. Even if you do nothing, this has already been constructed for you in a conservative but informative format. We echo public data in a easy to locate format that is well-publicized in pilot Internet circles.If you have not yet seen your personal web site click here. The default web site is initially limited to the data from the public AME directory. Click here to customize your site. You also might want to see what other AMEs have done.See example site.
Beyond this default site, most AMEs provide us with additional specific input for their sites (directions, office policies and hours, maps, pictures, etc). Whether or not you include your exam prices is up to you. But don't include general policies (like Part 67 information) because that is the same for all of us and will be accessible from the a link at the bottom of your page. Keep your site specific to you practice. Here is a sample site.
You can change you site as often as you like, but in the beginning, you may wish to direct pilots to call or email your office for pricing and scheduling information. As a service to them, they will be able to email you directly from your web site, but because of the risk of spam generation, we will conceal your actual email address and use one of our "alias" addresses to help combat the spam problem. No email links will be posted unless you specifically request them. We augment your default web site with any practice-specific information you provide us and nothing else.

Link to Pre-Existing Site: Linking to your external Web Site from flightphysical.com. $3.50 monthly. You will increase your site's page rank in search engines when you have popular sites maintain inbound links to your web address. Many AMEs already have remote web sites and hundreds already own their own domains. If you fall in this category, you can immediately benefit from our pilot promotional services. Give us the word, and we will add a link from your FlightPhysical.com page to your private web site. When pilots see your profile page, they will be provided with a direct connection to your existing remote site. External AME sites vary widely in sophistication but all share a common promotional requirement. The bottom line is that independent sites are difficult to find and not meaningfully targeted to a pilot audience. It is almost impossible that a new pilot will stumble on any particular site belonging to a single AME. FlightPhysical.com solves this problem. See How.
Prospective examinees will locate you through our highly publicized umbrella site. A single AME has minimal leverage to promote his/her practice; for example, large airline web sites will not link to an individual AME site, but they do link to us because we represent all AMEs. Our site promotes 4500 flight doctors, and we have a full staff working on publicity. Our site targets one audience -- pilots needing physicals, and we funnel a huge volume of pilots through FlightPhysical.com to AMEs every day. If you already have a functional external web site, or even a single external web page, place a link from FlightPhysical.com to your site. We charge a nominal $3.50 a month for outbound links unless we host your other site. If you want to switch hosting services, you can have your site hosted here at extremely competitive rates. We host for $6-400 a month depending on the package you select (unlimited bandwidth, no transfer fees). For those who are simply interested in linking ($3.50 per month) or to discuss hosting options, Email inquiries to flightphysical.com Please remember to include your URL if you desire a link from us.
Check out the FAQ page for more info on outbound links.

AMEs desiring to be listed in more than one location can purchase additional directory listings. This costs $4.50 per month for the first additional listing (2nd location) unless you also subscribe to Online Scheduling. If you use our web scheduling service, the fee for the first additional listing is waived (online schedulers get a 2nd listing for free). After that, your 3rd and subsequent listings cost $1 per listing per month. Your default listing is always free and based on your primary "official" FAA location. If you have 2 official FAA locations, let us know which you want to be your FlightPhysical.com free listing.
Sub-Domain: I want FlightPhysical.com to host my own Sub-Domain Web Site. Price $6 per month. 1MB of server space, unlimited bandwidth, 2 email accounts. This level of service enables you to have complete control over the appearance and layout of your web pages. There is no need to register, own or pay for your own domain because you will use a portion of one of the flightphysical.com domains (ie. http://flightphysical.com/your practice). Many find that it is a good way to start out experimenting with web site design (HTML) until they are ready to transition further toward becoming a full "e-practice." We provide server space but no construction or maintenance services. This cost $6 a month...and compares favorably to other forms of advertising. With this strategy the AME or the AME's web designer builds and tests the files locally then emails them to us for posting. You can change you site weekly, but more frequent updates would require an upgrade to a higher level of service. If you want to own your own domain, this can be a good way to bridge your practice's evolving "web presence" until you arrange formal hosting of your own domain. For specific questions, Mail inquiries to flightphysical.com

Virtual Domain Hosting (Most Popular Starter Option): For AMEs that want FlightPhysical.com to host their own Virtual Domain Web Site. Price $8 per month. This includes sub-domain static pages (as above), but appears as your own domain. You also get 5 MB of server space, unlimited bandwidth, 5 email accounts. This level of service enables AMEs to have greater control over the appearance and layout of their web pages. This option is ideal for those who want an available domain name or own their own domains (ie: www.YourPractice.com).
To be eligible for this option, the domain must be unclaimed and you must allow FlightPhysical.com to register it on your behalf or if you own it, you would allow us to transfer it from your existing registrar (eg, Verisign, Register.com, etc) to our registrar. You will retain all rights to your domain name, and any pre-paid time will transfer. You don't loose any of the time you've already purchased. As with all FlightPhysical.com services, everything is 100% satisfaction guaranteed. You can transfer back to any other registrar or hosting company if dissatisfied (this has never happened since our company launched in 1999!) The inbound transfer costs $16, and this also gives you an additional year of registration beyond your current domain expiration date. If you haven't previously registered, the process is even easier if you let FlightPhysical.com register for you.
Many AMEs find Virtual Hosting is a good way to start out experimenting with web site design (HTML) until they are ready to transition further toward becoming a full "e-practice." We provide server space, Internet level referral from your actual domain name, and basic construction and maintenance advice, but you are responsible for building your HTML pages or hiring a professional web site designer to do so. As a temporary option, we can refer traffic from your domain name to your templated (default) AME web page which has already been designed by FlightPhysical.com. This cost is $16 per year for registration of the domain name and $8 a month for hosting. The publicity gained from the FlightPhysical.com popularity is the most valuable part and it is free because you are an AME. This option is the most popular starting point and is superior in price and effectiveness to all other forms of advertising. As more AMEs use FlightPhysical.com services, we continue to stratify additional services levels to better accommodate your unique Internet needs. Our goal is to provide only the actual services you are using--no more--no less. With our services, you are free to upgrade or cancel anytime as your practice evolves. If you want to own your own domain, virtual hosting can be a good way to bridge your practice's evolving "web presence" until you arrange formal hosting of your own domain. For specific questions, Mail inquiries to flightphysical.com

Hosting your own Domain as an Dependent Web Site. Everything in a Virtual Domain plus your own FTP access. Price $14 per month. This is an excellent option for AMEs with relatively uncomplicated sites who still want the added flexibility FTP access to their own pages. This would be a required minimum for those making frequent (more than monthly) updates to their web site. These are still relatively uncomplicated sites and there is a limit of 20 MB and 100 separate files for this option. Sites above this space requirement, or complex sites (animated or interactive), or sites with multiple domains resolving to a single IP address put a significant load on our servers and must be upgraded to the Independent level of service or higher.
Back to Options Table
Hosting your own Domain as an Independent Web Site. Everything in an Dependent Web Site plus up to 40 MB of space. Price $22 per month. This level is the minimum required subscription option for AMEs with complex sites defined as: more than 100 files, over 20 MB of space, daily updates, animated or highly interactive content (ie. Flash, WMV, SWF files, etc), or with multiple domains resolving to a single IP address. This is an excellent option for AMEs (or their web designers) who want the added flexibility of controlling their own domain, or people who already own their own domains or have web sites elsewhere and prefer to have FlightPhysical.com take care of the hosting. This includes 20 POP email accounts for your practice. For example, you can set up your staff email to be:
You will have maximum flexibility with your web presence and you get practically unlimited bandwidth, 20 email POP accounts, up to 4000 files and 40 MB of server space per IP address for $22 a month. Since you are a registered AME, the set-up fee and minimum contracts are waived. Just pay month to month, and you are free to change hosting services whenever you like. We evaluated over 100 hosting services before choosing this one, and ours is an excellent service at an unbeatable price. Bargain basement hosting services are unreliable and too slow for professional medical practices. This is the minimum level of service for those AMEs anticipating frequent 2-way interaction with pilots and patients over their web site. For those interested in this option, Mail inquiries to flightphysical.com

Additional Domains: I want FlightPhysical.com to host and register Additional Domains as Virtual Domains after I already have a primary domain with FlightPhysical.com. After the first domain, some AMEs chose to add 2nd or additional domains that have independent content or "mirror" to the original domain. Price $5 per month per independent domain (separate static HTML pages), or $3 per month when this domain resolves directly to primary domain (mirrored domain). This is a very economical level of service for those who own or wish to own more than one domains (ie www.yourpractice.com and www.yourpractice.net). We will register your domain with the InterNIC and host it as a parallel virtual subdomain. If you register your own domain, we may be able to offer this service depending on the registrar's policies. It is better if you allow us to register it on your behalf (no extra mark-up charge). Registration costs an additional $16 per year. The only time-critical item is registration of your own domain before it gets claimed by someone else (they are being registered at 30,000 per day as of Jan 2008). For specific questions, Mail inquiries to flightphysical.com
Professional Image Optimization $15 one time fee up to three images. The biggest mistake novice web designers make is to take an image straight from a digital camera or scanned image and try to place it on a web page. First of all, a single picture will probably exceed your total 200K space allotment, but more importantly, these graphics must be optimized for the web. We can usually manipulate and optimize full size images (as big as 4 MB) down to approximately 60k which translates to a much better user experience, and saves you the cost of subscribing to additional server space. Graphics on the web are always a tradeoff between file size (small is better = faster downloads!) versus image quality (no pixelation, minimal stranding, good color balance). The resolution of the monitor for most viewers is 72-96 dots per inch (DPI), so it is pointless to try to post a high resolution image on a web page. It will either display too big and distort the page, or download very slowly without any discernable increase in image quality. Some web designers try to force the client (viewer's) browser to squeeze the image into a given pixel dimension for proper layout, but this is poor technique because the client has to download the complete image and this is wasted bandwidth (download time). In plain English, pilot's have to wait for a slow page load, and don't get any improved image quality. Let us examine or manipulate your photos, or use Photoshop yourself and adjust size, resolution, compression and color palette settings for optimal web appearance balanced against quick download speed. For do-it-yourselfers, set color depth 24 or less, set dimensions to maximum pixel width of 500 (150 for upper right graphics), resolution must be 72 DPI, and max file size should me below 100K. For specific questions, Mail inquiries to the graphics department at flightphysical.com

Full Service: I want FlightPhysical.com to register, host and build my own Domain as a Web Site. This is the highest level of service currently offered, and details are negotiated on an AME by AME case basis. This is the minimum level of service to be eligible for a unique IP address and your own HTML domain control panel. We will register your domain with the InterNIC, host it, and provide various construction and maintenance services. Prices range from $25 -$400 a month...this compares favorably to other forms of advertising (soon the Yellow Pages ad and direct mailings will be obsolete!) The only time-critical item is registration of your own domain before it gets claimed by someone else (they are being registered at 30,000 per day in Feb 2008).
