Welcome to the June issue of highlights from the flights.
The Flying Doctor specialises in fast response to computer problems for homes, people running business from home and in small offices.
Call The Flying Doctor because we will sort out your computer, web and network issues in a businesslike, sensible way. But, if there’s no affordable cure and it’s cheaper for you to buy a new computer, we will say so.
With 30 years’ experience of fixing computers, there isn’t much that we haven’t seen before. But we’re honest too - if we can’t fix it, we’ll tell you!
Remember we offer free email and telephone support and you can read our collection of free guides
We’re so sure that we’ll sort out your problems that we say: if The Flying Doctor doesn’t sort your problem then you don’t pay!
And some more news! The Flying Doctor is getting so successful that he is expanding his fleet and flying to new destinations to help people suffering from computer panic.
I am creating new operational bases by franchising the business: Do you know anyone who would like to be their own boss as a pilot with the Flying Doctor?
With a franchise with The Flying Doctor they can run a successful, enjoyable and profitable business from home.

First we had rogue programs telling you that your computer had '1203 problems' and to 'click here to fix it'. All that happened was that you paid a lot of money to fix issues that weren't there.
Then came the 'undeliverable items' email that downloaded nasty stuff onto your computer and again involved money to remove it.
The latest scam is by phone - you are called at random and told that Microsoft has detected a problem with your computer and would you like the company calling to fix it - once you have got your credit card out.
Firstly Microsoft would not know that there was something wrong with that specific computer even if there was something wrong. And how would they get your phone number anyway?
Best thing to do? Just put the phone down.
Email here, there and everywhere
We rely on email all the time, but what if we are out and about a lot?
Most ISPs (broadband providers) will give you email, but there is a lot of concern about spam where an email address may be 'spoofed' by someone else. So more and more ISPs lock an email address to a specific broadband line to try and combat spam. A great idea and invisible to most people.
But what if you plug your computer into another connection – say a wifi hotspot or a mobile broadband stick? This has a different address to your line at home and you can't send emails!
Panic ensues, but we can solve the problem with four options:
Use the webmail that most ISPs provide. This will sort out most people, but the limitation is that you can only use the email address(es) that your ISP gave you. If you are a business or use a different email address, then your emails will be sent from Joe.Smith@isp.com, for example, rather than email@example.com. So not great for the image.
Use a third party email provider. These usually give you access from anywhere in the world and lets you use your email client as normal.
Try a mobile phone with email. Most modern phones will let you link to your email account and you can send emails to and from the phone. There are practical limitations – no attachments, small keyboards and so on.
Run your own email server. Maybe for the brave, but it does work!
Help people to fly their own Flying Doctor franchise!
The Flying Doctor's mission to prevent people throwing their computers through the window by giving them reliable, trusted help with great value has been a great success story. It's busier and busier from all the new customers that come from recommendations by happy customers.
Can you see yourself running your own successful business that gets people's lives back on track by sorting out their computers?
Do you want to earn the money that you deserve?
So if you want to use your skills to be your own boss, but are worried about the business side, then a Flying Doctor franchise can help. We provide you with a full business system, training and marketing support to help you get customers: a professional approach to business that builds your credibility from the beginning. So you can become your own boss and make your own success story.
There are over 3½ million households in the South East and 44% of businesses are run from home. That's a lot of computer problems.
So now The Flying Doctor is launching franchises in the Bucks, Berks and Wilts areas.
I'm looking for people with a passion for computing, but who are fed up of working really hard just to make money for others; people who dream of starting their own business to get the rewards of their skills, but are scared of the plunge.
As a franchisee of The Flying Doctor you get a complete business system. So if you want to pilot their own Flying Doctor franchise then please call me.
