    <P>East African animals are threatened by poachers in search of ivory and rhino horn. Protecting them are the bush pilots of the Kenyan Wildlife Service Airwing. We meet Danny Woodley of Tsavo West National Park</P> <P><STRONG><EM>What is the KWS Airwing and what does it do?</EM></STRONG></P> <P>The Airwing was set up by the Kenyan government as a division of the Wildlife Service to support wardens and paramilitary staff on the ground.

    <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/
