Aero-TV Takes A Look At The Start Of The 2008 Fly-In Season

Lakeland Got Off To A Muted Start... But There Were Some Pleasant Surprises

While Lakeland's annual Fly-In is not without its fair share (OK, more than its fair share) of problems, it is pretty much the lead off event for a new year's fly-in season... and thus looked forward to with great anticipation.

This year was no exception. We saw the first sight of the Pilatus PC-12NG, the Liberty Vanguard, Garmin's AMAZING SVT and just as it all concluded, ANN Managing Editor, Rob Finfrock, got his Sport Pilot's license... so despite all the nonsense we usually have to deal with, we not only found a way to have a good time this year, we did better than most--especially with Rob's triumph to brag about.

So... today, Aero-TV does something a little different... here are some of the sights and sounds of the 2008 Lakeland Fly-In, narrated by Paul Plack and EXPERTLY shot by Aero-TV Videographers Nathan Cremisino, Jim Grosser and Laura Jobe... all under the supervision of Aero-TV's Sr. Producer, Sarah "The Whip" Curtiss.

Much of the footage has been seen, in bits and pieces in recent Aero-TV features and there is FAR MORE to come, as well, from our work at this event.

We have some exciting footage currently being prepared for future Aero-TV programming... including an interesting interview with EAA's Tom Poberezny about the one Fly-In we can ALL get excited about... Oshkosh!

So... Let's Join Aero-TV For A
Video Salute To The Start Of The 2008 Fly-In Season!

About Aero-TV: It's DEFINITELY Show Time!!!!

OK, folks, here we go... we are NOW initiating the first feature programming series for Aero-TV... we're going to take it slow, but we're also going to try and be steady about this. DO UNDERSTAND that this is the most complex media program we've ever undertaken and what you're seeing is just the tip of the iceberg... but from here on out, we will be doing our best to educate, inform, and entertain YOU about all aspects of the exciting worlds of aviation and aerospace. 

If you've been an observer of the media and associated media industries over the last few years, it's not hard to mistake the fact that a massive revolution is taking place. Old sources for news and information are falling by the wayside, having to change their modus operandi or risk obsolescence (or extinction). Electronic media and print media are both under the assault of progress, and the online world has been a cornerstone for revolutionary change.

We've been ready to go for a while, but to be honest, there's so much more to this program than we've alluded to, and so we've been building and planning a massive new organization within ANN. That said, we're hiring talented new people as fast as we can find them (a far more difficult task than we had imagined -- REALLY good people are hard to find), and we're brainstorming at speeds that would make a deorbiting Space Shuttle feel like a slug. Suffice it to say that we wanted to do this right, rather than right-now, and that the development of this program has been the most carefully pursued undertaking we've ever undertaken. 

E-I-C Note: The complete feature shown above is embedded in this story, with most of the slick and useful functionality otherwise available on the main Aero-TV site (which will be upgraded aggressively over the next few weeks). The ability to embed a video on another web page is but one of the hundreds of amazing little features that we've worked hard on, for many months now, to implement in different phases of the initial release of Aero-TV. It is, BY NO MEANS, the only way to enjoy unaltered Aero-TV programming on other parts of the web... as we have extensive plans for future functionality, but this feature allows those with an interest in a specific Aero-TV News or Feature program to embed it on a different web site, though we must note that we reserve the right to forbid such use for those sites or purposes that we do not feel fit in with the proper mission of the Aero-News Network, Inc.  

Webmasters or Administrators of well-trafficked aviation or aerospace related sites, are welcome to contact the Publisher to start conversations on how they may be able to leverage some of the immense power of Aero-TV programming for their sites and constituency by clicking the I Want Aero-TV For MY Website! link.
