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: American Association of Airport Executives
It’s hard to imagine that an organization born in the early days of aviation in 1928 with a gathering of 10 airport directors would eventually grow to become one of the largest and most influential associations in Washington, but that’s precisely the history of the American Association of Airport Executives. AAAE ranks in the top 1 percent of professional trade associations in terms of budget and staff size and has an equally impressive reputation in Washington for providing outstanding representation on behalf of airport executives.
While the growth of AAAE over the last eight-plus decades is notable, the goal of the organization has never been to get bigger simply for the sake of doing so. Rather, the goal established by generations of exceptional airport leaders has been to grow AAAE in order to better serve airport executives by providing ever improving products, services, and Washington representation.
