So if you’ve been following this blog for the past several years you might recall that we moved from Liberty, Missouri (a suburb of Kansas City) to Cupertino, California in 2018. That move was the result of a fantastic career opportunity for my wife Amy. Well, two years later she has been offered a promotion with a relocation to Austin. There are few things worse than moving, but in this case I’m looking forward to it. The Bay Area is beautiful, and the weather is fantastic, and it’s so absurdly expensive that growing a small “bootstrap” (i.e. self-funded) business is a significant challenge. The move to Texas will reduce costs (like my $630 / month T-hangar) and make it much easier to grow.
The down-side to the move is that it will disrupt things for a couple of weeks while everything is in transit. Orders for FlightView systems, FlightBox Pro systems and most accessories that come in after May 15 will be shipped as soon as things get unpacked – probably somewhere close to June 1. Orders for FlightBox Plus systems (the portables) should ship next-business-day in most cases. I will be providing tech support by email / trouble ticket throughout the move, but there may be slightly longer delays in response time.
The new address for the company will be:
Open Flight Solutions
2901 Kenai Dr.
Cedar Park, Texas 78613
Thanks in advance to everyone for their patience. I look forward to working with you from the new digs in Austin.
