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.
Recently, 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.
There are A LOT of truly valuable resources out there... from
pages devoted to nearly every kind of aircraft imaginable, to some
well-thought-out blogs, to the official websites of such
organizations as AOPA, EAA, and NAFI -- you name it and its
probably out there.
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: Texas Aviation Association
The future of our space adventures need to start right here on
Earth, in our own backyard. Where will we train our astronauts if
they can’t start flying at the FBO on the edge of town? Texas
has put together an organization to fight the NIMBY syndrome (Not
In My BackYard) and show the importance of local airports in out
National Airspace System. They even have a message from Buzz Aldrin
on their site.
