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.
Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN via Aero-Linx. Suggestions for future Aero-Linx segments are always welcome, as well.
Aero Linx: ZenAir
The name of the site just seems to invoke peacefulness about it. But it’s not about doing yoga in a glider, if you could do yoga in a glider. Getting yourself into a glider can be yoga-like... but I digress. The real purpose of the ZenAir site is to bring together the builders, flyers and maintainers of Zenith Aircraft. Benefits include the usual newsletters, for sale ads, and meeting notices.
