Paris In Miami? Maybe In 2012 from AVwebFlash Current Issue
With a growing aerospace industry and a location that provides access to the Latin American market, an economic development group in Florida hopes to bring a major commercial air show similar to the one in Paris to Miami every other year. Airbus has moved its Latin America and Caribbean sales team from France to Miami, and trains about 2,000 crew members at a center there each year. The Miami show could attract small and medium-size companies that can't get to Paris, and would also be attractive to the U.S. military, said Frank Nero, CEO of The Beacon Council, an economic development group working for Dade County. The show could launch as soon as 2012, though "there are still many hurdles," Nero told the Miami Herald.

A Bright Finish For "Sploshkosh" 2010 from AVwebFlash Current Issue
The challenging wet weather in Oshkosh leading up to opening weekend was surely a factor in keeping this year's attendance figures about 7 percent lower than last year, but EAA President Tom Poberezny says the drop was expected after last year's "blockbuster" event. But he added that the second half of the week was "outstanding." The weather turned clear and comfortable, and the Saturday night airshow was a hit -- it will be back next year, Poberezny said. Also, commercial exhibits were up to 777 this year, compared to 750 in 2009. If you missed any part of this year's show, check AVweb's media round-up for all the news, video and podcasts from EAA AirVenture.
