ANN FAQ: Aero-Twitters Offer Instant Alerts For Breaking News

Say Hello To Aero-Twitter!

Twitter is designed to work on a mobile phone as well as on a computer (and can be accessed via your IM clients). All Twitter messages (called "Tweets", naturally) are limited to 140 characters, so each message can be sent as a single SMS alert. Brevity is a virtue when using Twitter, since you can't say much in 140 characters (then again, the world would probably be a better place if people spent less time reading their cell-phones, anyway).

ANN Special Report: Colorado NIMBYs Defeated... For Now

Vicious Campaign Against Skydiving Operation By Small, But Vocal, Group Loses Court Case

News/Analysis by ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell Those of us who work and play in the aviation world have seen it all before... a small GA airport falls victim to complaints as more and more homes are built/sold/occupied around it and a number of the homeowners (and not necessarily all that many, percentage-wise) decide that their own sensibilities take precedence over those they would seek to displace, silence, even destroy... despite the fact that the airport was (in most cases) there long before they arrived. These are the same people who ignore the noise made by their lawnmowers, motorcycles, music systems, and other audible properties but become positively unglued when an airplane drones by for a few seconds while in the process of taking off or landing... with durations far less lengthy than other audible attractions. That being said, an amazing court action came to a close this past week...

Deadline For $30 Million Google Lunar XPRIZE Extended To End Of 2017

Progress Continues To Be Made To Return Humanity To The Moon

XPRIZE and Google have officially confirmed a further extension of the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE. XPRIZE notes that they continue to see substantial progress from their teams, and after months of discussion, they have decided to provide additional time for teams to plan and make arrangements for a future launch. Securing an available window with a launch provider is a calculated logistical process that can be many months in the making, in some cases more than a year, so an extended schedule will benefit the teams a great deal as they move towards taking the next step in the competition.
