We are happy to announce in this issue a partnership between Midwest Flyer Magazine and Connell Aviation Group of Cedar Falls, Iowa. The Connell family has a long history serving general aviation in the Midwest, and has resources that complement and expand our marketing services for advertisers.
From new advertising sales, to ad layout and design, and online services, we look forward to working with Connell Aviation Group, as we have since they began advertising with us two years ago. You can see examples of their advertisement design work on pages 9 and 27. (See article on pages 24-25 for details.)
If you enjoy reading about aviation history, you will enjoy an article by R.J. Reilly in this issue about his encounter with a Douglas DC-3 in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1952, as well as a feature article on the Aviation Heritage Center of Wisconsin, and their efforts to restore a DC-3 flown by North Central Airlines from 1953-1964. (See articles beginning on pages 29 and 31.)
Continuing our aviation history theme, is an article entitled “Vintage Beech Across The Big Pond” by Klaus Plasa, who shares his experience ferrying a 1942 Beech C45H across the Atlantic Ocean. (See article beginning on page 33.)
Columnists Pete Schoeninger, Greg Reigel, Mark Baker, John Beasley, Mick Kaufman, Harold Green, Hal Davis, Cassandra Isackson, and Frank Nix will entertain, inform and educate us with topics ranging from instrument flight, pilot proficiency, flight safety, aviation law, aircraft ownership and maintenance, and pilot health, to state and federal issues, as they do in each and every issue. We could not ask for a better editorial team to work with.
