Merry Christmas! If you’re traveling – safe journey. And, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season. May the blessings of Christmas be with you throughout the New Year!
“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, –
And done a hundred things You have not dreamed of —
Wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.
Hovering there, I’ve chased the shouting wind along,
And flung my eager craft through footless halls of air . . .
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
Where never lark, or even eagle flew;
And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and [sought the shekinah glory] of God.”

We trust your flying this year was remarkable and wish your best dreams of flight become a reality in the New Year.
Connecting Aviators® development phase has begun which includes programming and architecture to support the native iOS iPhone and iPad applications.
The high-fidelity UI/UX prototype of the Connecting Aviators® app is complete. It’s what developers call the front end user interface and we’ll reveal more screens in the near future. Many thanks to the pilots that have provided feedback on the design.
The Dev Phase for backend buildout has now started. And, we’re still on schedule for release of the app in early 2021.
