Is the worst of the recession over... at least as far as the aviation world is concerned? Hard to say... and though GAMA pronounced that 2011 was to be the turn-around year, we were sadly disappointed. Hopefully, though, the current doldrums may be the worst of it... Watching the trends in 2012, especially with trouble afoot for so much of GA, is going to be interesting. Hey -- remember that F-16 that went off the runway at Oshkosh this year... we now know what happened and fog INSIDE the cockpit is being named the culprit in the accident that hurt no one but one pilot's pride. And we're pleased to note that prep for Reno 2012 continues as the organization continues to research its practices and procedures in the wake of last year's tragedy... we have great faith in Mike Houghton's folks, so we feel good about their chances. All this and SO MUCH MORE in this week's edition of AIRBORNE!
As always, PLEASE keep sending us your feedback and ideas... you have no idea how important that is to us as we evolve the Airborne mission. As we listen to your critiques, we're getting a far better idea as to how to tweak and fine-tune future Airborne programming to fit your needs. We think you're going to like what we have in mind for the future.
