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.
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.
100LL is becoming a rarer, and more expensive, commodity,
particularly outside the U.S. That has
prompted some engine manufacturers to build
engines designed to burn mogas, and others to consider
STC's that will let pilots save some money by purchasing
the less expensive and sometimes more available
fuel. Here is a website exploring some of the research into
the use of automotive gas in airplane engines.
