FAA Began The Light Sport Aircraft And Sport Pilot Programs In
The idea was to make it so that more people could experience
flying from the front of the airplane, rather than the back. And
according to the FAA, more than 2,000 people have earned Sport
Pilot licenses since the program began in 2004. Aircraft
manufacturers have come up with more than 90 LSA designs, and there
are more than 800 factory-built Special Light Sport Aircraft
recognized by the administration.

Last week, ANN and Aero-TV broke big news as Alan Klapmeier disclosed his plan for the possible buy-out of the Vision jet program from Cirrus Aircraft and Arcapita. As usual, we got the salient details to you right away... hours before official details leaked out and several more hours before some other so-called aviation publications could transcribe and copy the interview... (grin).

New Trainers Very Similar To Front Line Combat Jets
The first of the RAF's GBP450m fleet of 28 new Advanced Jet
Trainers, the Hawk T Mk2, arrived at RAF Valley in Anglesey this

with systems closely compatible with the latest front line
Paper Reports Mars Could Have A Warmer, Wetter Climate In The
Favorable chemistry and episodes with thin films of liquid water
during ongoing, long-term climate cycles may sometimes make the
area where NASA's Phoenix Mars mission landed last year a favorable
environment for microbes.
Aerojet announced this week that it has completed manufacturing
and assembly of an advanced 5,500-lbf Liquid Oxygen (LOX) Liquid
Methane (LCH4) rocket engine. Aerojet will soon begin testing this
advanced engine to provide data that will validate the design
features necessary to extend the technology development of
next-generation propulsion systems being developed by NASA.

Aero-Linx: NASA Phoenix Mars
Launched in August 2007, the Phoenix Mars Mission is the first
in NASA's Scout Program. Phoenix is designed to study the history
of water and habitability potential in the Martian arctic's
ice-rich soil. The Phoenix Mars Mission has a collaborative
approach to space exploration. As the very first of NASA's Mars
Scout class, Phoenix combines legacy and innovation in a framework
of a true partnership: government, academia, and industry.
"Not only did we find water ice, as expected, but the
soil chemistry and minerals we observed lead us to believe this
site had a wetter and warmer climate in the recent past -- the last
few million years -- and could again in the future."

interpretations of data that Phoenix returned during its five
months of operation on a Martian arctic plain fill four papers in
