Complying with the applicable legislation, you can find below the informations relative to the Search Engine Optimization and Flight Packs ranking in our Platform. If you have any question, do not hesitate to contact us by using the form here.

1. Search Engine Optimization and flights ranking in the results page

There is no capitalistic link or compensation of any nature between members of the community and Windiver which is likely to influence the search engine optimization or the flight packs ranking in our platform. This is also the case for authorized Instructors who post trained flights in the platform.

Any host, as a natural person, having an active account in the platform is authorized to post a flight.

The flight is published and posted among our search results as soon as it respects the search engine optimization conditions below :

You are only authorised to post a flight pack if you fulfill all the following conditions :

Furthermore, we are likely to dereference a flight pack or block your account in case you do not respect our T&C’s, in particular, as a planner, as mentionned in replicated Article 8.2 below :

2. Comparison of trained flights, coached by professional instructors

We allow professional Instructors to post some of their trained flights on our platform. These flights are ranked in accordance with the explanation in the paragraph 1 above.

There is no capitalistic link or compensation of any nature with the Instructors. After the approval of their registration, we don’t receive any compensation from these professionals : we only apply the same fee as the shared flight fee, paid by the participants. The amount posted on our platform for these trained flights includes thus the amount of the cost contribution of the flight time previously purchased to the wind tunnel by the instructor and our service fee (tax-included). The fees regarding the trained session by the instructor, which amount and terms can be stated in the flight pack description should be considered as an extra fee by the participant and must be paid directly to the instructor during the flight, windiver is not taking part in that transaction.
