Aero-TV: Rod Hightower -- Strengthening the 'Core' of the EAA (Part 1)

So; Half A Year Into The Job... How's He Doing... What's He Think?

We don't have to tell you that the landscape of aviation has changed dramatically in the last few years... especially in terms of the "leadership" that supposedly guides the world of aviation through the many storms we face (on a seemingly daily basis). With the AOPA's transition from Boyer to Fuller now looking more and more like a crushing disappointment (and the tenor of that organization morphing from something impressive to something somewhat embarrassing), the EAA transition takes on even more critical tones.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (05.16.11)

Aero-Linx: The Lynx Suborbital Spacecraft The Lynx is XCOR’s entry into the commercial reusable launch vehicle (RLV) market. This two-seat, piloted space transport vehicle will take humans and payloads on a half-hour suborbital flight to 100 km (330,000 feet) and then return safely to a landing at the takeoff runway. Like an aircraft, Lynx is a horizontal takeoff and horizontal landing vehicle, but instead of a jet or piston engine, Lynx uses its own fully reusable rocket propulsion system to depart a runway and return safely. This approach is unique compared to most other RLVs in development, such as conventional vertical rocket launches and air-launched winged rocket vehicles “dropped” at altitude from a jet powere
