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.
Aero Linx: General Aviation Awareness Council (UK)
The GAAC claims to be the most representative UK body in General Aviation, and says it is recognized as such by Government, the CAA and others to be the organization that speaks for General Aviation on planning and environmental issues. The orginazation says it intends to widen its‘awareness’ campaign to other issues where there is consensus. The council says it can answer questions on topics ranging from model aircraft flying to new airport planning.
