Wow... what a wild week! The aviation world got more than it fair share of news this week -- good and bad -- as the Obama Administration set its course on User Fees but also finally an FAA reauthorization Bill... while the Helicopter industry gathered in Dallas and sold HUNDREDS of helicopters in one of the better gatherings we can recall. Boeing finalized a monstrously big order, LightSquared finally got its comeuppance and ANN shows that there are still some affordable and solid values in the LSA market. All that... and SO MUCH MORE in the latest episode of AIRBORNE!
PLEASE keep sending us your feedback and ideas... you have no idea how important that is to us as we evolve the Airborne mission. As we listen to your critiques, we're getting a far better idea as to how to tweak and fine-tune future Airborne programming to fit your needs. We think you're going to like what we have in mind for the future.
