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.
The Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) was founded by a
group of Montana pilots who realized the threat of recreational
airstrip closure was of national concern. They also recognized that
there was the need for a unified effort by pilots everywhere to
protect public recreational opportunities. The RAF is dedicated to
preserving existing airstrips and actually creating new public-use
recreational airstrips throughout the United States.
