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: Cardinal Flyers Online
The web site came about through the urging of a number of Cardinal owners who wished for a central location for information about the Cardinal. The goal has always been to capture and retain the accumulated wisdom of the Cardinal Owning population in a way that helps most of us learn and helps all of us remember. Much of the material on this site is based on the CFO Email digest created by Paul Millner. Paul does a great job of editing and moderating that list, and the members of that list do a fine job of telling their experiences for the common good.
