As SpaceX’s Elon Musk pushes ahead on his development of rocket and delivery systems to supply the International Space Station, he is also looking at finding a way to provide high-speed Internet communications for the entire world. If that sounds like an ambitious plan… it is…and it’s reported that Google and Fidelity seem to agree to the tune of $1 billion. General aviation comes to the rescue. More than 200 dogs and cats were flown from Greenville Airport in Alabama to various locations in Florida last Saturday in an effort to find new homes for the animals. Called the "Plots N Paws Sunshine Flyway", the effort was coordinated by pilots Devon and Jill Barger. It involved 15 Florida planes and pilots working together with 22 sending rescue organizations in Alaba

Barnstorming: OK… What’s This 'Airborne Unlimited' Thing REALLY All About?

An Old Chinese Proverb Warns… Be Care In What You Wish For -- You May Get It!

Analysis/Commentary/Observations by Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief For a number of years, we’ve pondered what steps we might take to jump-start a woefully needed revolution to improve the fortunes of the aviation and aerospace world.
