Welcome to the July 5th issue of Aerotech News and Review! Aerospace Valley fan-atics: Do you LOVE this cover photo as much as we do?? We paid a visit to Blackbird Airpark, to get an inside look at how some of our area youngsters are spending their summer. The fantastic Junior Test Pilot day camp program, sponsored by the Flight Test Historical Foundation, is underway once again in Palmdale.  So great to see our future aircraft mechanics and engineers taking advantage of the aviation history resources we have available in our own backyard. (How about an excursion to Joe Davies Heritage Airpark this holiday weekend – now that’s an idea!) Click on the link below to read more about this great program in this week’s edition of Aerotech News.
