PartsBase.com has introduced a Web-based aircraft parts and services listing and locating program called AeroPages that the Boca Raton, Fla. company describes as the industry’s first “smart” aviation directory. Listing formats are on display at the PartsBase booth (No. 4626).

Aerospace product and service companies can select from four levels of Internet display complexity at annual subscription rates of between $100 and $2,400. PartsBase said its directory is different from similar online listings because features include a “new, user-friendly format with proprietary search technology,” unlimited keyword search for featured company listings, and sort filtering by city, state and country.

Listing levels begin at Basic, which provides Web site exposure by company name, city and state. Basic listings “ride on the coattails” of more detailed listings in a “very focused aviation-specific directory,” the company said. CrossLink listings add bold oversized lettering, a one-line teaser tagline and link exchange between the listing company’s Web site and PartsBase’s AeroPages.

A Featured listing includes a company logo, the ability to offer streamlined video, a Request for Information form and a company detail page elaborating on the subscriber’s products and/or services. The Premium listing places a Featured listing in a “Top 10” position in its subcategory, along with a banner advertisement.

Prices for one-year subscriptions are: Basic Listing, $100; CrossLink Listing, $500; Featured Listing, $1,000; and Premium Listing, $2,400. Multiple category and subcategory discounts are available.
