The hits just keep on coming... as Aero-TV is pleased to present
another intriguing interview from the floor of the recently
concluded AEA 2008 Annual Convention. During the latter part of
this busy event, ANN's Jim Campbell was able to corner Ric Peri,
AEA Vice President Of Government & Industry Affairs, in order
to get some into the state of the avionics industry... from where
he works in Washington, D.C.
Despite the many issues and challenges this industry faces, Peri
remains upbeat about the future of the avionics industry as well as
all of aviation. Still; Peri discussed his concerns and ideas about
a number of topics... repair stations, third-party maintenance, the
FAA including some GOOD things its doing at the moment), changes in
field approvals, the Part 145 re-write, recent media reports about
government supervision of the aviation industry, Re-Authorization
and ADSB... and more!
The Aircraft Electronics Association represents more than 1,300
aviation businesses, including repair stations that specialize in
maintenance, repair and installation of avionics and electronic
systems in general aviation aircraft.
AEA membership also includes instruments facilities,
manufacturers of avionics equipment, instrument manufacturers,
airframe manufacturers, test equipment manufacturers, major
distributors, and educational institutions.

About Aero-TV: It's DEFINITELY Show
OK, folks, here we go... we are NOW initiating the first
feature programming series for Aero-TV... we're going to take it
slow, but we're also going to try and be steady about this. DO
UNDERSTAND that this is the most complex media program we've ever
undertaken and what you're seeing is just the tip of the iceberg...
but from here on out, we will be doing our best to educate,
inform, and entertain YOU about all aspects of the exciting worlds
of aviation and aerospace.
If you've been an observer of the media and associated media
industries over the last few years, it's not hard to mistake the
fact that a massive revolution is taking place. Old sources for
news and information are falling by the wayside, having to change
their modus operandi or risk obsolescence (or extinction).
Electronic media and print media are both under the assault of
progress, and the online world has been a cornerstone for
We've been ready to go for a while, but to be honest, there's so
much more to this program than we've alluded to, and so we've been
building and planning a massive new organization within ANN. That
said, we're hiring talented new people as
fast as we can find them (a far more difficult
task than we had imagined -- REALLY good people are hard to find),
and we're brainstorming at speeds that would make a deorbiting
Space Shuttle feel like a slug. Suffice it to say that we wanted to
do this right, rather than right-now, and that the development of
this program has been the most carefully pursued undertaking we've
E-I-C Note: The
complete feature shown above is embedded in this
story, with most of the slick and useful functionality
otherwise available on the main Aero-TV site (which will be
upgraded aggressively over the next few weeks). The ability to
embed a video on another web page is but one of the hundreds
of amazing little features that we've worked hard on, for many
months now, to implement in different phases of the initial
release of Aero-TV. It is, BY NO MEANS, the only way to enjoy
unaltered Aero-TV programming on other parts of the web... as we
have extensive plans for future functionality, but this
feature allows those with an interest in a specific Aero-TV News or
Feature program to embed it on a different web site, though we
must note that we reserve the right to forbid such use for those
sites or purposes that we do not feel fit in with the proper
mission of the Aero-News Network, Inc.
Webmasters or Administrators of well-trafficked aviation or
aerospace related sites, are welcome to contact the Publisher to
