List & Lettershop Services
AccuData
AccuData can help you select key information for a list purchase from consumers or businesses. They are excellent at fine-tuning the demographics to give you a very targeted marketing campaign.
Aerodata
Aerodata is a list service for just aviation. They can pull mailing lists of pilots by rating, zip code, radius to your location etc. Bill Culbertson is the contact there and can be reached at bill@aerodata.com. They are very helpful, and their pricing is quite reasonable.

This is the one I've used for the last few years.

Pricing is also very competitive. Mark Goodwin or Robb Sartori can help guide you in the right direction.

Low-cost Image Resources
stock.xchng
Outstanding site! Thousands of aviation images covering all areas. High resolution and completely free to use commercially! I can't recommend this one enough for quality and quantity.
Dreamstime

 Outstanding image library with over 2,000,000 images. Prices are usually $1 to $3 for high resolution. The best bang for the buck if you need a shot for your marketing.

iStock Photo

One of the best high-resolution image resources that is a fraction of what most photo stock houses charge. However their prices have been creeping up. Their library contains over 3,000,000 images and counting. Depending on the size of the file, pictures range in cost from $1 to $20. I would recommend always purchasing the largest size for the most flexibility, but before you do, check out Fotolia or Dreamstime to see if they have the same image for less.

www.fotolia.com
Outstanding library of almost 400,000 quality images with most going for $1 or $2. Quite a few aviation shots included. This is what Istockphoto used to be.
Morgue file
Another great resource with all of the images free of charge to download. There aren't quite as many aviation shots as iStock Photo, but for clouds and weather images that are outstanding, do a search for the photographer "cohdra".
Rosebud's Aviation Image Archive
Great site that consolidates vintage copyright-free, public domain images for free downloads. A very well-organized site.
Library of Congress Image Library
If you need vintage aircraft shots, here is the place to look. Shots before 1923 are in the public domain along with many other later ones.
Web Work
CFIs Nationwide
They offer low-cost, custom-made web pages for flight instructors without ads or popups. A very economical option to get in the door and have your own site.
Freelance web design
