Pilot's Guide to Avionics Available in Oshkosh
It continues to be a busy week for the AEA staff at EAA AirVenture, as the crew is distributing thousands of the 2012-13 edition of the Pilot's Guide to Avionics. The free Pilot's Guide is available throughout the week at the AEA's AirVenture booth, No. 2035/36, Hangar B.
This year marks the special 10th anniversary edition of the Pilot's Guide to Avionics, a consumer's directory published by the AEA containing buyer's guides, educational articles and timely information about the avionics industry, its products and its people. The publication helps pilots make better buying decisions and locate more than 1,300 companies in the industry, including government-certified repair stations around the world specializing in maintenance, repair and installation of avionics and electronic systems in general aviation aircraft. The back portion of the Pilot's Guide includes a directory of AEA members that sell, install and service avionics and instruments. It also includes the manufacturers and distributors of these products, as well as technical schools and universities, engineers and consultants for the industry.
