Happy New Year! I’ve been waiting to say that for about six months now. While there is no guarantee 2010 will be any better than 2009, it always feels good to flip the calendar to a clean sheet, full of possibilities.
That said, looking forward I find loads of challenges (or opportunities if you prefer a positive outlook) ahead. The ongoing dialogue around the future of fuel, new pilot starts, the public perception of general aviation, amazingly insane proposed rules and regulations from the FAA, and aviation as a business are just some of what we’ll be discussing in 2010 and beyond.
