When it comes to the people, planes and products of the aviation
business, ANN firmly believes there is no such thing as an
embarrassment of riches. 2006 saw a spate of new programs and
'gadgets' designed to separate a pilot from his flying dollar...
fortunately, the vast majority of them are quite worthy of

novel program in which SR20 and SR22 Avidyne Entegra Multi-Function

enhance a pilot's safety focus as he or she starts each flight.

people as snow fell across central Wyoming around the time the
planes took off, according Al Ross, meteorologist with the National
Weather Service in Riverton, WY.
