Industry event attendance down, gratitude for emergency responders, veterans up in this week’s Avionics Intelligence Report

AVIONICS INTELLIGENCE REPORT, 13 Nov. 2012. Avionics Intelligence’s Executive Editor Courtney E. Howard has had the pleasure of being out and about among peers in the aerospace and defense community the past couple weeks. This week, in fact, she is touring aviation facilities throughout Northwest Florida. Keep pace with her online at and Twitter.

Attendance at annual industry events has been down, due in part to budgetary challenges and, in part, to Hurricane Sandy. Those affected by the recent hurricane are certainly in our thoughts, and we offer our sincere thanks and gratitude to all those involved in the relief effort, both on the ground and in the air. Both military and civil helicopters have been integral to the emergency response and recovery efforts, and we thank you.

We also celebrated Veteran’s Day this past weekend, and I offer my appreciation to veterans past and present for your hard work, dedication, courage, and sacrifice.

This week, be sure to visit or follow me @coho on Twitter to read all the news as I travel Florida’s Great Northwest visiting innovators in aviation.

That’s all for now. Thank you for watching the Avionics Intelligence Report.
