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: Flying the Hudson River
A private pilot's web page about flying the Hudson River corridor, Scott Germaise has put together a tremendous amount of info that "discusses rules, regulations and best practices for flying light aircraft on the popular sightseeing route of the Hudson River, passing through the metropolitan New York City area. The instructions are intentionally verbose and try to include all of the things a prudent pilot should know about before flying in the area."
