About us- our company, Mountain Technology Systems, Inc., is a small company that provides business services to other small and medium-size companies. These services include website development, technical writing, and virtual assistance.
Bill is the owner and President of the Company. He has been a pilot for over 36 years, seven with the U.S. Navy, and 29 with a major U.S. airline. He was a Captain on the Boeing 737, and type-rated on the Boeing 737,757 and 767. He was also a Flight Engineer on the Boeing 727. He is currently a 787 Captain.
This website was derived from a small booklet that Bill wrote years ago entitled "Understanding Your Flight- Boarding to Deplaning". The idea for that booklet and this website was generated, in part, by the many questions that passengers, friends, and family would ask about why this or that was happening on their airline flight. But, and this is important, they wanted explanations in everyday terms and not in pilot or other aeronautical technical terms! This website is developed to help bridge that information gap!
Thanks for visiting us!
We hope that you have enjoyed the information you have viewed so far. As stated above, this website was something we had always wanted to do. While we had built simple websites before, we wanted a more complete solution to the whole business of internet information and commerce. To try to build a successful business online takes more than just figuring out how it looks, organized, and created. That's half the battle, the other half is the the tools, knowledge, and help in marketing the website.
We looked at a lot of software packages to develop our website including various content management systems (CMS) such as Joomla and even a relative's own CMS. While they were all good in the design and organization of a website, we feel they didn't have the "complete package" that we were looking for. While there are certainly a number of website products and services, that combined, could probably provide the whole package of website development and marketing, how long and expensive would it take to compile these to use? After searching and knowing that a complete solution must exist, we finally came upon Solo Build It! (SBI). To say that we found the complete package we were looking for, is an understatement!
First of all, the philosophy of SBI is one that we have always had and have tried to follow. Be true and honest in all efforts to build a successful website, it is not a get-rich quick scheme and takes hard work. Anything short of that is suspect. All the tools to host, build, develop, and market a website are in one place. The Forums are an unbelievable place to get advice and see what other people have gone through. The learning guide and subsequent learning articles explain everything in great detail, and the support, if you need it, is very responsive and free!
There is so much more to describe what SBI can do for you if you want to build a website. It's a great oppurtunity to build your own business and convey the knowledge and enthusiasm you have for a particular subject. Please click below for more information, and if you have any questions feel free to email us at our Contact Us page. Thanks!
Here's another option if you can't or don't want to pay for a year subscription! Also there are specials from time to time, so here's another way to build the website that you have always wanted to!
