Thursday's amazing live-streaming programming of the AEA 2010
New Products Introduction session is now behind us andwhile we had
GREAT expectations, we also KNEW that it was going to be tough to
accomplish to the extremely lofty standards we set for all things
we do under the Aero-TV banner. As usual, the Aero-TV crew did NOT
disappoint us and pulled off a truly spectacular effort. I am
phenomenally proud of them... but we still have three exciting

that we've been flogging the video geeks to within an inch of their
lives to make it all happen and today's AMAZING programming proves
it was all worth it... Still, since we really put the pressure
on, we've decided to give them a SLIGHT break and will be offering
classic episodes of Aero-TV, most of which with an Avionics Theme,
in order to make up for "hell week."
