Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough,
if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows
us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not
that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often
hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts
confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this
is done on the Internet.
Recently, the ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some
of the neat sites, info resources, and organizations we've
discovered to ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx.
These are the sites that WE check out -- when we need added
perspective, a new spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape
into cyber-aero-space for awhile.
Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN via
Aero-Linx. Suggestions for future Aero-Linx segments
are always welcome, as well.
This site looks to improve flight safety with a focus on human
factors, by analyzing, discussing, and reflecting on the pilot's
roles, functions, and responsibilities in the cockpit; cockpit
leadership and management; and pilot judgment and decision making.
The site also links to the NTSB, NASA & FAA Accident, Incident
& Miscellaneous Databases, and is home to "Hangar 13," a
subscriber section with a pilot lounge and document library.
