With 2012 still fresh in our memories it’s time for ANN to unveil our annual Best of the Breed – recognizing top aircraft in a number of specific categories.
You can see all of our choices on our website at www.aero-news.net over the next few days, but let’s face it, it’s the Best of the Best that most people will be interested in. This year’s award winner is a solidly built little four seater built by a trustworthy company that has weathered a fair amount of tough times without selling its soul. We speak, specifically, of the Diamond Aircraft DA40 XLS -- an outstanding GA airplane with one of the most impressive safety records in recent times. There were no long, drawn-out hearings and pointed questions that often make up the political theater surrounding the confirmation of a Presidential appointee. On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate approved Michael Huerta to be FAA Administrator. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
