All,

You may have seen my 12/31/13 NYCAviation.com article entitled, "Meet the Dougie Howser, M.D. of the Aviation World" 

In it, I interview an amazing young man who is destined to turn the future wheels and wings of aviation.

He's been to 33 countries, speaks 6 languages, started his own business, created a non-profit to fight corruption, and wrote a book on aviation entitled, Amazing Airlines ($8.99 print, $5.99 ebook on Amazon: goo.gl/s4El2Q) . . . 

All before the age of 17!

Many of you have been clamoring for more info on this whiz kid, so below is our interview, "raw and uncut." In addition, I reserved some juicy tidbits to share just with you!

Interlude: The Tiny Blue Dot

#nasa #jpl #blog #video #avgeek #aviation


45 years ago, a single photo changed humanity's view of itself.

Taken by the astronauts of Apollo 8 in orbit around the moon,
the photo shows a tiny blue dot—an oasis—in the vastness of space.
That fragile blue oasis is called Earth.
This is the story of that amazing photo, taken almost by chance.
