Photos from Edwards

here's an amazing collection of photo's from the Edward Air Force Base flyin/open house. It's worth taking a look. (Thanks Jay J.)

One a side note, winter is almost over. Looking forward to flying more regularly again. Hopefully will be dusting the rust off tomorrow (March 1)!!

Opening skies to women

Just doing my small part to promote Women of Aviation Worldwide Week, coming next week, March 7 through 13. To find an event near you, click here, or go to this link:

David vs the USPTO

Never before has the issue of how broken our patent system is (and tort law for that matter) been made as clear to me as the case of RunwayFinder. I sincerely hope that Dave Parsons has the perserverance to see this through. A I also hope our legislators succeed in their efforts to change our current system, one that allows patent trolls to profit while adding no value to society.
