Chickasaw Kids Go Flying from AVwebFlash Current Issue
Chickasaw Nation Aviation and Space Academy offers a five-day summer camp that this year doubled in size. Some 82 students signed on for the five-day experience that put each one of them in the pilot seat of a Diamond DA-40, thanks to US Flight Academy in Denton, Texas. The children ranged in age from 10 to 18 and spent one of their five days at the academy taking ground school, visiting the control tower and going for rides. "There's no substitute for the real thing," said US Flight Academy's Mark Taylor, who acted as event coordinator. "When these kits take their first ride in an aircraft, their eyes light up like the sun," he said. The camp brings children together from all over the Midwest. Through the program they gain exposure to everything from model rocketry to the basics of space medicine.

Parajet SkyCar flying vehicle evolves, now ready for pre-orders from Engadget by Darren Murph
The historians once pontificated that we'd all be cruising about in flying cars right around the year 2000, and while that whole Y2K fiasco threw us a tad behind schedule, it looks like the future may actually still be upon us. Parajet, the same company responsible for that downright unnerving
personal flying machine we peeked back in '05, has now placed its long-awaited SkyCar up for pre-order. Said vehicle has evolved quite dramatically over the years, but now that dollars (er, pounds) are being dropped on it, we have to assume that the design is near final. The vehicle is completely street legal and can accelerate to 62mph in just 4.2 seconds, thus making it the world's first "usable, road-legal flying car." If you're champing at the bit to be the first on your block with one, you can drop £10,000 ($16,381) now and pay the remaining £50,000 ($81,905) just before it ships in "late 2010." Of course, we're not making any promises about it actually shipping, but that's a risk you'll have to take.
