After A Tough Year, Let's Celebrate What We Think Is The Best And Brightest This Industry Has To Offer
OK... 2012 is a year that many of us would just as soon forget. Still, we believe (and hope that you do, as well) that there was still a fair amount to celebrate about the year that is quickly coming to an end.
That being the case, we'd like to ask your input as we try to decide what planes, products, company and persons made this tumultuous year better than it might otherwise have been. Let's face it, the year kinda sucked, and did so in a lot of ways... but if not for the best effort of a number of companies and people, it could have been a whole lot worse.
SO... let's hear from you... what companies impressed you this year? What was the best airplane produced in 2012? What were some of the best products -- and why? What people really impressed you with their actions, initiative and efforts this year? Who and/or what made 2012 a lot better than it might have been? Feel free to opine on all aspects of the business... commercial, general, sport aviation, what have you... but PLEASE fill us in on the stars of 2012... and let's hope that 2013 shows serious improvement over recent years!
