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.
Recently, 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.
There are A LOT of truly valuable resources out there... from
pages devoted to nearly every kind of aircraft imaginable, to some
well-thought-out blogs, to the official websites of such
organizations as AOPA, EAA, and NAFI -- you name it and its
probably out there.
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: Tucker School Of Aerobatic Flight
What better place to learn the ins and outs of aerobatic flying
than at the Sean D. Tucker School of Aerobatic Flight? Who better
to teach you than Sean’s son Eric, that’s when
he’s not doing his “Stars of Tomorrow”
thing? The school has other instructors, naturally. King City
Airport (CA) is the school’s location. There are several
different programs available, all designed to make you a better,
safer pilot. Whether you’re at the controls of a Cessna 152
(that ultimate terrorist instrument of destruction), twin Comanche
or a Lear jet, the skills you learn at SAF may help you out if you
find yourself in an unintended jam.
