Aviation Blog Links


Good Information, in Good Formation

I’m certainly not the only one in cyberspace blogging about aviation and my reasons for blogging on the subject are not the same as everyone else’s.

On this page, I present a selection of other aviation related blogs that I enjoy reading. Each has their own unique angle and style. Some of them you may recognise from the reference links I put at the end of some of my own blog articles.

Solent Aviatrix
The Solent is the strait the separates the Isle of Wight from the British mainland. In aviation history, it is best known as the homeground of the legendary Supermarine aviation company and birthplace of many classic flying boats, Schneider Trophy winning air racers and the immortal Spitfire. Less known is that the area was also the homeground of many legendary female flyers, such as Lettice Curtis and Jackie Moggridge, who made names for themselves in the high risk job of ferrying aircraft in the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA). Solent Aviatrix was created to remember these and other women pilots originating from the Solent area:
