One thing ByDanJohnson.com can do to introduce more people to aviation is to attempt to distribute news of recreational flying and Light-Sport Aircraft to a wider audience, preferably to a potential community of non-pilots many tens of millions strong. Our goal may sound ambitious but we want to do our part, bringing the message of more affordable aviation to the interested public. *** More than any other, we believe, ByDanJohnson.com concentrates on LSA news, reporting almost daily on this dynamic new sector of aviation. We can more widely circulate this news… to power sports enthusiasts, tech fans, and sportsmen of many stripes. *** In a related, parallel development, more and more folks are getting their news online or via mobile. Major drivers for this shift from print magazines are giant news-gathering websites like Google News. To be considered by this Internet leader a website must be a genuine news organization, not simply a blogspot. OK, fair enough. We decided to work on meeting their requirements; additional professional writers were part of the equation. *** Since the launch of ByDanJohnson.com in 2004, we’ve gone from an online library of hundreds of pilot reports and thousands of photos to a full-featured website with all sorts of free info resources such as our SLSA List, FIRM List, LSA Videos, PlaneFinder 2.0, and much more. But perhaps more importantly than any other, ByDanJohnson.com offers LSA news, right where you’re reading it now. *** We have some big plans for the future as this website grows and matures, and we’ll explain more as they emerge. At this time, we’d like to bring your attention to our growing editorial staff, part of meeting the Google News requirements. Perhaps you’ve noticed the bylines at the beginning of each home page article? With more reporter diversity than ever, we wanted to properly credit those who contribute. *** Please let me introduce you to each of our team members. Click here to read a few words about each person connected with ByDanJohnson.com. I am deeply grateful to have each of these people assisting me as I publish this website. –DJ *** One More Thing… Today, we added more videos to our list, bringing our total to more than half of all SLSA. Check out the newest ones and remember to turn on Alphabetic Listing to more easily pick the videos you want to watch.
