I'll admit, I had misgivings when I passed through the gates of
Sebring last week for the start of US Sport Aviation Expo 2007.
Right there, front and center, was the (loyal EAA sponsor) Ford
Motor Company display... and prominently featured was a new Mercury
Grand Marquis, a popular full-sized sedan with retirees, and top
contender for Official Car of Central Florida. "Well," I thought to
myself, "they know their market."

TBM Owners "Off The Hook" For Expensive Fix... If Needed
The documentation supplied with a recent FAA Airworthiness
Directive proposal is rumored to have caused heart palpitations for
some owners of Socata's speedy TBM 700 turboprop. Despite Socata
statements published last year, the FAA reported that the cost of
full compliance with the ADs and the replacement of the TBM's gear
(for those so affected) would set back owners as much as
$127,040... whereupon a number of TBM owners commenced to start
having serious heartburn (or worse).

Mesa, AZ and relocate tooling and employees from the
company’s Long Beach, CA service center. The new facility
will open in a phased transition by the first quarter of 2009.
'Heritage To Horizons' Exhibit To Sport More Than 30

AirVenture? If you work here at ANN, it's never too early! This
year, the EAA and the US Air Force are teaming up to bring
attendees something special.
Aero-News has learned Master Instructor Rich Stowell, who was
also named the FAA's 2006 National Flight Instructor of the Year,
recently released a new book entitled, "The Light Airplane Pilot's
Guide to STALL/SPIN AWARENESS."

"Pierson began slowly lowering his trousers and saying
'I have nothing more to give.' He then allowed the trousers to fall
around his ankles."

Airbus," author John Newhouse describes the rather -- ah,
unconventional -- tactic employed by Airbus ex-CEO Jean Pierson to
secure a 400-plane order from US Airways in 1997.
