First off, I'm not entirely here to self-promote - but this piece was supposed to have been on Flight Club until they let me go. I ended up writing it for NYCAviation, who some of you fellow aviation geeks might already be familiar with:

And because several of you have asked where I'll be writing next, I'm freelance writing for NYCAviation.com, AirlineReporter.com and AirwaysNews.com

Thanks again for all of your kind words via email.
