Happy New Year from The Aero Experience! It's hard to believe we've been having aero experiences together since 2009, but it's true. Over these few years we have added regular contributors, and some guests as well, as our staff has gained media status recognition from civil and military authorities including at this year's EAA AirVenture Oshkosh event. Our travels have reached farther into the American heartland and beyond, and we have made enduring friendships and partnerships with area aerospace institutions. We have taken flights in aircraft from the Bell 47 to the MV-22 Osprey; Piper Cherokee, Tripacer and Cessna 172; Waco UPF-7, AT-6D Texan and Nanchang CJ-6. Most gratifying, The Aero Experience has participated in community activities that have brought honor to military veterans, recognized aerospace industry contributors, and introduced flight to the next generation of aviators.
December 2012 received the most readership of any month to date, and we are most grateful for your interest in our journey. This coming year looks to be the best ever, with more in-depth coverage of our first-hand Midwest aero experiences than ever before. We will include more guest contributors, interviews and trips to interesting places, and you are always welcome to come along. Check back early and often!
