With 2012 still fresh in our memories it's time for ANN to unveil our annual Best of the Breed -- recognizing top aircraft in a number of specific categories. You can see all of our choices on our website at www.aero-news.net over the next few days, but let's face it, it's the Best of the Best that most people will be interested in. This year's award winner is a solidly built little four seater built by a trustworthy company that has weathered a fair amount of tough times without selling its soul. We speak, specifically, of the Diamond Aircraft DA40 XLS -- an outstanding GA airplane with one of the most impressive safety records in recent times. There were no long, drawn-out hearings and pointed questions that often make up the political theater surrounding the confirmation of a Presidential appointee. On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate approved Michael Huerta to be FAA Administrator. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!

Airborne 01.04.13 is chock full of info about the half-week period ending Friday, January 4th, 2013... Presented by Aero-TV veteran videographer and Airborne Host Ashley Hale, and supported by ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell, Chief Videographer Nathan Cremisino, and Aero-Journalists Tom Patton, and Glen Moyer, this episode covers:
