Connecting Aviators Phase 2 design work has been completed

Connecting Aviators® Phase 2 UI/UX design work has been completed and turned over to the Development Team for programing. Phase 2 will add several significant new features to help pilots lower their flying costs.

For example, pilots will be able to find and post information about aircraft co-ownerships for free. Connecting Aviators® will organize co-ownership opportunities nationally by airport into three categories: 

Three Aircraft Co-Ownership Designations:

  1. Pilots seeking to Join a co-ownership
  2. Pilots starting a new co-ownership
  3. Pilots with an existing co-ownership that want add a pilot.

Participation in General Aviation can be expensive. But studies have shown the cost of airplane acquisition and flying can be reduced 50% to 75% through co-ownership which allows for the sharing of fixed expenses, such as, hangar, insurance, subscriptions, maintenance and capital acquisition costs. We’ve learned finding the right pilots to form a partnership can be time consuming and expensive. But it should not be that way.

Soar We Now . . . 2021

It’s Good Friday.  I hope you can take some time off and indeed say  “Christ the Lord is Risen,”  As Charles Wesley wrote, circa 1739 –

Soar we now where Christ has led;
Following our exalted Head;
Made like him, like him we rise;
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. Alleluia!

Your Glory hidden in creation is now revealed in Christ.

1 Cor. 15:1-8; & 12-28; 1 Tim 1:17

Clouds rising. Tribute to Soar we now, Charles Wesley, 1739

March is Women’s History Month

Celebrating women in history this month. One hundred years ago, Amelia Earhart was taking flying lessons. Even today, she remains in the news for her accomplishments and pursuit of goals. Although Amelia may be most frequently mentioned in discussions surrounding her disappearance on the circumnavigation attempt in 1937 she achieved celebrity status in her lifetime for different reasons. Amelia personified the pursuit of adventure, determination, and breaking of norms. She was a strong promoter of air travel and women in aviation and women in new world roles.

MeLinda Schnyder, aviation and travel writer, published 10 anecdotes about Earhart’s life in honor of Women’s History Month. Here are ten things you might not know about A.E.

  • Amelia designed a roller coaster at age seven.
  • She called Atchison Kansas her hometown
  • She had plenty of nicknames: Meeley or Millie, A.E. in correspondence, Queen of the Air, Lady Lindy.
  • She learned to fly before learning to drive a car
  • She loved fast, open, sporty cars
  • She was an influencer
  • She used her celebrity for good
  • She was a fashion innovator
  • She insisted The New York Times and other media use her professional name – Amelia Earhart.
  • She had a short but record-setting flying career.
