The principles of general event planning should be applied to community aviation events as well, with the specific needs of the industry applied. In order to define and measure “success,” the answers to the What, Why, Where, Who, When, and How should be self-evident before even the draft of an event plan can be taken seriously. Time lines for obtaining financial and logistical support are essential, and commitments from participants and support staff are needed early in the planning process.
Aviation News Journal has been published since 1991 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The current Producer/Publisher/President, Elke Robinson, an active pilot herself, took over the business in 2011. "We focus mainly in getting AVIATION to everyone - young and old - and believe Aviation is a skill to be learned by anyone," she told The Aero Experience. She also stressed that Aviation News Journal features communities, human interest stories, flying schools and clubs, air shows and events, and the various categories of available aircraft. You can keep up with her adventures by checking the Pacific Pilot.

We also encourage businesses who wish to reach audiences in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest and Canada to advertise with The Aero Experience and Aviation News Journal.
