E-I-C Note: I
am inordinately proud of the work that ANN's Aero-TV teams do when
it comes to online video... we have (from the very start) eschewed
the awful, amateurish video styles so many other organizations
favor in an effort to be a part of a media revolution that they
neither respect or understand. Like with our online audio
offerings, ANN was one of the first to adopt such new technologies
and has watched a number of other entities try to keep up. We wish
them luck with that (grin). "Aero-Minutes" are a new programming
option from Aero-News... already well-known for our longer form
features, news programs, Daily News Updates and so much more,
Aero-Minutes are designed to give you a quick but professionally
produced summation of an intriguing topic or breaking news in a
faster paced format, which also allows us (in terms of news
coverage) to turn such programming around in a lot less time --
without sacrificing the quality that has become part of our ethos.
We hope you are as excited as we are to see yet another innovation
in our news and feature programming -- as you can plainly see, we
don't sit around here much when we could, instead, be innovating...
-- Jim Campbell, ANN-I-C.

Carter Aviation Technologies has revealed reveals their
four-seat personal air vehicle at AirVenture 2009. Designed to take
off and land vertically, the aircraft is able to cruise at high
speeds with the efficiency of a fixed-winged airplane.
Carter Aviation Technologies is a research and development
company, pioneering new aviation concepts. Their primary focus is
the slowed-rotor compound aircraft, a vertical takeoff and landing
aircraft that uses the rotor for takeoff and landing, and a small,
efficient wing for high speed flight, up to 500 mph, all with much
less complexity than a tilt-rotor or other vectored thrust vehicle.
Carter successfully demonstrated the slowed rotor concept with the
CarterCopter Technology Demonstrator (CCTD), the first and only
aircraft to reach mu-1.
