    <p>GRAHAM WARWICK / WASHINGTON DC</p> <p>The first certificated synthetic-vision flight displays face the ultimate test with general aviation operators plying the mountains and fjords of south-east Alaska</p> <p>Alaska is a tough testing ground for aviation technology. But the US state's challenging and isolated flying environment makes it an ideal laboratory for the operational evaluation of avionics advances intended to improve general aviation safety. Given the atmospheric and topographic hazards routinely faced by Alaskan operators, any technology that improves their safety record should benefit general aviation in more benign environments, where weather and terrain continue to be major causes of accidents.</p> <p>Alaskan pilots are the first to gain operational experience with a new generation of electronic flight instrument system (EFIS) designed to improve situational awareness and help avoid controlled flight into terrain and inadvertent entry into instrument meteorologicalhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Northern-exposure-168227/

    <p>NAMIBIA</p> <p>NAMIBIA DEFENCE FORCE</p> <p>Namibia gained independence from South Africa in 1991. Its small defence force has been creating an air wing since an order was placed in 1994 for two SA315 Cheetahs and two SA316B Chetaks from India's Hindustan Aeronautics. The two Cheetahs were lost in a collision in 1999. The air element also has six ex-USAF Cessna 337/O-2A Super Skymasters and a Cessna F406 Caravan II for surveillance duties. Air transport is provided by a handful of Y-12s. These aircraft, with a Falcon 900 acquired in early 1992 and a Learjet 31 used for government/VIP transport, are based at Windhoek's downtown Eros airport.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>NATO</p> <p>NATO AIRBORNE EARLY WARNING FORCE</p> <p>The NAEWF was established in January 1980 to provide a European AEW force.

    <p><img src='../Assets/GetAsset.aspx?ItemID=288' /></p> <p>John King/TEKAPO </p> <p>IN common with other countries with deregulated aviation industries, New Zealand has seen a proliferation of small airlines in recent years. Also in line with experience in many countries, some of those carriers have met problems. </p> <p>It is the old story of enthusiasm attracting under-capitalised players into setting up small organisations to fill a niche, often with inadequate back-up. While they may at first operate with outward efficiency, after a while cracks start to show and can lead to incidents. </p> <p>Two small New Zealand airlines - Soundsair, with a Cook Strait operation, and United Aviation, with a wider network of freight and passenger services in the lower North Island - have had public problems in recent months. Each had a fatal accident and was grounded by the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand (CAANZ). United has been grounded permanently, such was the state of its in-houshttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/The-right-way-32084/
