It's been an interesting week for the Airborne crew... in addition to souring the aviation world for news, we've had the chance to look at the long range ramifications of some of the stories that we reported on in 2011... stories that will obviously still be affecting us throughout this year. The NTSB hearings into air race and airshow safety issues went off quite professionally and we believe the aviation world showed the world what it was... concerned professionals who have always had safety foremost in their minds and actions. In other areas, though, it's obvious that the EU ETS scheme will be a costly one, although it seems that the Administration may actually be waking up to do something in response. We're glad to see the FAA consider he Whooping crane grounding, and we're VERY pleased to see that BRS scored another save with the airframe parachute system that ANN's Jim Campbell had a hand in testing so many years ago. Yeah... a VERY interesting week...

PLEASE keep sending us your feedback and ideas... you have no idea how important that is to us as we evolve the Airborne mission. As we listen to your critiques, we're getting a far better idea as to how to tweak and fine-tune future Airborne programming to fit your needs. We think you'e going to like what we have in mind for the future.
