American Futures: Visiting America by Small Plane

James Fallows, national correspondent for The Atlantic and an IFR-rated pilot (currently of a Cirrus), has been flying around the U.S. and writing about the experience of visiting cities and towns that are reinventing themselves (more details and stories at American Futures). You can view an album of photos taken along the way here.

He and his wife Deb were featured in a program on C-SPAN last week, talking about their experience so far.

Using General Aviation to report on American Futures

James Fallows, national correspondent for The Atlantic, has begun his latest adventure, American Futures. He’s flying his Cirrus SR22 around the U.S. to report on communities that have reinvented and revitalized themselves.

Jim is an experienced pilot and a terrific journalist. This new project is a good showcase for general aviation.
