EAA and the Aero-News Network are pleased to release the latest in a series of novel Aero-TV/Airborne programs designed to draw attention to the most innovative and aggressively oriented companies in the aviation universe -- and most particularly, those with REAL news to impart at AirVenture 2018.

So... we present this year’s "AirVenture Innovation Preview," (which we call the "AIP", for short), to allow dozens of innovators who worked with us over the past few weeks to produce informational video presentations with our media staff. This comprehensive program containing some 30 or so short, 2 to 5 minute, online media presentations that offer a glimpse at what is really new and innovative at AirVenture. Terrafugia has announced new features in the Transition production vehicle, a two-seat auto and aircraft. The latest features and systems will be incorporated and verified in the next test vehicles. The first production vehicles will reportedly come to market in 2019. Sporty’s has introduced Stratus 3, the latest generation of aviation’s best selling and most trusted weather receiver. The new model includes popular features like subscription-free weather, dual band ADS-B traffic, GPS, and backup attitude information, plus additional app options and a new low price. “With our partners Appareo and ForeFlight, Sporty’s keeps making a great unit better,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. Stratus 3 has an introductory price of $699. Pilots will find thoughtful additions like an automatic shutoff mode that senses the conclusion of a flight and saves battery life. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
