The days of Lincoln Beachey and Didier Masson are, for the most part, a thing of the past. You may not recognize their names individually, but as part of a group collectively known as “Barnstormers” they flew their way into the hearts and imaginations of many a would be flyers. Mounted in the cockpits of their CURTISS JN-4 (Jenny) Bi-Planes, they swooped and swarmed all over the country, creating one of the most romantic periods in Aviation History. But, alas, those ARE bygone days, and if you are thinking about getting into the Aviation Industry today in any realm, you should be most interested in the WORLD’S TOP BUSINESS JET MANUFACTURERS AND KING AIR 300 TRAINING.
Have you ever, when the sun is sinking lazily in the west and the sky is just a tint between “red at night” and “blood orange”, thought about how you would splurge if YOU won the multi-hundred million dollar lottery? If you have, and you are like most people, you undoubtedly have envisioned opulent surroundings like Louis XIV’s Palace at Versailles, or Kublai Khan’s Xanadu. Most of us will never find ourselves surrounded by that kind of elegance, but rather live in much more humble abodes. But, as a pilot, you might find yourself whisking around the world in HNA Aviation Group’s “tricked out” 787 BA, thus making OPULENT PRIVATE JETS AND KING AIR 300 TRAINING something pretty germane to your plans!
If you were to take a poll today (NOTHING to do with Hillary or Donald!), undoubtedly most Americans will tell you that the two most prevalent modes of transportation in the country is by air and by car. And, if you watch TV commercials, you will note that both industries spend a great deal of money to woo prospective customers to their particular areas. That’s why it is so intriguing to note that FORD MOTOR COMPANY recently donated the aviation-inspired FORD “Ole Yeller” Mustang at the EAA AirVenture event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, which was then sold at auction and raised $295,000 for EAA youth education programs, including Young Eagles. If you are concerned about the preservation and perpetuation of General Aviation, you, too, should be interested in FORD’S “OLD YELLER” MUSTANG, EAA YOUTH EDUCATION AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING.
It’s hard to believe that on December 17, 2016 we will be celebrating the 113th Anniversary of the first motorized flight at Kitty Hawk! That momentous flight took twelve seconds and covered a total of 120 feet - - meaning that the craft was flying at a whopping 10 feet a second! At the rate, a craft would travel approximately seven miles an hour! But, it didn’t take long for the Aviation World to surpass those lofty numbers. And, one of the members of the Aviation World to advance their field was the BOEING AIRPLANE COMPANY. Interestingly enough, 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the firm’s inception. If you find that you refer to such things as rudder and yaw on a regular basis, you undoubtedly understand the importance of AVIATION HISTORY AND AIR 300 TRAINING!
Do you remember Amelia Earhart? And the tragedy that beset her? She had so many Aviatrix “firsts” that you might think there are no “Firsts” left for a lady pilot. In fact, you might think there are no “Firsts” left for anyone. Yet, such is not the case in either instance. For example, Julie Wong, a Palm Beach-based flight instructor just announced that she is going to attempt to be the first Chinese woman to solo around-the-world, which will also make her the first Chinese woman to circumnavigate the world in an aircraft. As a result, AVIATION FIRSTS AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING is something that might very well be possible for YOU!!!
