“NextGen Program Gains ADS-B Implmentation”

Another one bites the dust!

avion

I was published this week in my school’s newspaper (on the front page!!!), The Avion, for a story I wrote about the Next Generation Air Traffic Control System phasing in ADS-B. Want to know more? Read the whole article HERE!

The funny part about this story was I pitched to to a fellow blogger (who has a LOT of aviation journalism experience) and she didn’t want to pick it up… so I changed a few things around and made it better suited for my school’s paper and they picked it up the week I submitted it.  It’s funny how that worked out, I thought I had spent all this time researching and writing this article only for it to be turned down… yet I actually got it in print media rather than online. (And kudos from the editor!)

Thanks for following my journey.

Till next time!

Flying, My Journey

Ride-Along to VRB

Tuesday Morning I headed out to Daytona Beach to join my friend Christopher (ha! Chrissi & Christopher!) on a short trip to Vero Beach. We took off from DAB and joined the coastline for about an hour. Christopher introduced me to the G1000 for the first time–and I think after the first moment of cluelessness I may have fallen in love! Photo Jan 19, 11 36 13 AM The trip was nice — and courtesy of Christopher you can join us on our trip with this video! Here are a few photos that I took during our trip that I thought turned out pretty good!

Landing 7R

We’re heading back to VRB next week to tour the Piper Headquarters — but unfortunately I won’t be able to take pictures while I’m there as they have a no photography rule 😦

Till next time… Blue Skies!!
