uAvionix was the new kid on the block at AirVenture just a few years ago, and this year it was showing a maturing and diversifying product line that includes a variety of ADS-B equipment (over 50,000 units have been sold) and flight displays. Larry Anglisano spent some time at the uAvionix booth with Shane Woodson and prepared this video report.
The years between the world wars are widely considered the Golden Age of flight. In the midst of it, Charles Lindbergh flew the Atlantic, air races were wildly popular, aircraft were making huge strides in performance and safety and passenger flights were accessible, if not cheap. Americans couldn’t get enough of airplanes and this was reflected in movies like Flying Down to Rio, with chorus lines atop a Lockheed Vega.
