There's been no shortage of exciting developments in general aviation this year. As we approach the mid-point of 2006, AVweb asked our readers which continuing story or product-in-development is generating the most excitement.

Our answers were evenly split, with one exception: Diamond's D-Jet excited only 48 AVweb readers accounting for a somewhat-small 10% of the responses to date.

On the other end of the spectrum, the FAA's ongoing struggle with ADS-B garnered the most votes. 24% of respondents cited this as the most exciting ongoing news story in general aviation right now.

23% awarded that honor to the ongoing strife between the FAA and NATCA.

22% were most excited by the promise of a "Cirrus Killer" from Cessna.

And the remaining 21% of respondents are looking forward to Cessna's entry into the realm of Light Sport Aircraft.
