SkyWriters Update

I have several more posts started and underway for this blog. But until they're finished, this little post of shameless self-promotion will have to do:).

The reason the posts are slow in getting done is because, as noted previously, I've been very busy getting SkyWriters Publishing up and running. SkyWriters is my aviation publishing company. I'm using it to promote and publish a series of aviation training manuals for ab-initio students. ("Ab-initio" roughly translates to the first 250 hours, private, commercial, multi-IFR, although I also have products for instructors—both practicing and candidate).

Right now, SkyWriters Publishing has three products on the market.
  1. Applied Aerodynamics for Private and Commercial Pilots
  2. Private Pilot License: Written Exam Preparation
  3. Instructional Air Notes
There are also a host of products under development.

Each of these products offers student pilots (or instructor candidates) an opportunity to build their knowledge and improve their performance.

At the moment, I'm the only author being published by SkyWriters. But this will change. In the near term, an aerobatics quick-reference guide is under development by another author. In the longer term, some other products are under development, or at least being discussed. This will eventually bring other authors into the SkyWriters fold. In the meantime, if you know any aviation authors looking for a place to publish, have them drop us a line at SkyWriters Publishing.

We've recently entered into a tentative agreement with www.flyingcanuck.ca to carry our products. Hopefully, this will work out, and both SkyWriters and FlyingCanuck will benefit from the partnership. Further distribution channels are also being explored, but building this thing from the ground up is a slow process. Bear with me!

Happy Flying!
