Wanna set a speed record? from DailyAviator by Dennis Collins
One of the ways aviation was first promoted, beginning a century ago, was by the official recognition of records. In that way pilots were encouraged to fly farther, higher and faster in various types of aircraft, and the media attention these actions drew advanced aviation and attracted money. Between the aging of the pilot population, and the current economic difficulties, maybe it would be a good time to set some records…

Commercial websites for women pilots from You Fly, Girl by Cathy Gale
Came across this website which has a desk calendar featuring dates in women's aviation. That's a calendar I've been searching for for a long time, indeed, if I had had the financial wherewithal myself I would have made one meself and put it on the market.Anyway, they beat me to it, and I ordered it today. I'll report on it when I get it, but if you know of anyone interested in aviation, (female or otherwise!) send 'em this as a Christmas gift! - They also have clothing - t-shirts, fleecy vests, a logbook (pink, with the powderpuff logo on the front), and Softcomm headsets.
