https://vimeo.com/125017353 I was sorry not to be in Hamburg this week, for the plethora of connectivity and IFE announcements that swept through my inbox. Sounds like it was a truly exciting show. Luckily my friends at Gogo, Thales, Inmarsat, Panasonic, Rockwell Collins  and the mighty Global Eagle Entertainment kept me updated from afar.

Was suddenly getting a lot of comments on a post I wrote 2 years ago. All very complimentary - then I realised this must -sigh- be spamming. It has nudged me into a quick update today. Sooo busy finishing a book on private jets, writing a couple articles prior to heading to Hamburg next week for the Aircraft Interiors Show (http://www.aircraftinteriorsexpo.com) for Inflight magazine (www.hmgaerospace.com) , which I edit , then to China for the Asian Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition. Hamburg's going to be very buzzy. Thales, Panasonic and Lufthansa Systems have kindly invited me to go visit them for [...]
