I'm not so sure it's the way to go. Folks who want to come out to take a looksee are discouraged by the spectator fees IMO. With NASA I'm allowed 3 crew members which is often my friends/family.

Getting anyone else to jump up and head out seems to be an often discussed option that never materializes. Add a fee and they seems to never "find the time" to get out there. Make it free and you can bust 'em in the chops come Monday - Hey, where WHERE YOU??? No excuses. LOL.

Sort of like making that first hit free, once you get them out there to see what is going on, then you get them a ride with an instructor - addicted for life after that. YMMV.
