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.
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.
Aero Linx: Capital Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association
The Capital Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (CHGPA), founded in 1974, is a non-profit association dedicated to the growth, safety, and solidarity of the sports of hang gliding and paragliding. CHGPA is an exciting, active organization of about 150 members, most of whom live in Washington, D.C. and the surrounding suburban areas of Maryland and Virginia. Pilots, family members, and non-flying hang gliding enthusiasts comprise their membership. They regularly hold fun and informative meetings at which everyone, members and non-members alike, is welcome. The CHGPA is an official chapter of our national organization, the United States Hang Gliding Association (USHGA). CHGPA also organizes many exciting events each year; fly-ins, competitions, glider displays, out-of-town flying trips, seminars, and parties all provide opportunities to meet many new friends and learn more about hang gliding and paragliding.
