We’re new here

I started this blog at blog.com with the very nice address:
www.aloft.blog.com.

Catchy, easy to say and to remember. I liked the service as it was uncluttered, had nice themes and was easy to use.

However…

However, over time it became apparent that the operators of the blog.com service do not pay as much attention to details as they should (or even would like to, who knows…). The service was down a lot and veeeery slow.

So after checking a number of alternatives, I decided to do my own website with the new – even cooler domain of www.aloft.aero!

This will give me more control and the readers better performance in the future. And turning my hobby into a learning experience in WordPress can’t hurt either!

Over the next few days I will move the old blog posts over here step by step. I also have to decide on a nice theme and finally, to complete the move – I will link the new site from the old blog. Farewell blog.com, I really liked you!

We miss you, Captain Dave!

We miss you, Captain Dave!

There are many blogs on aviation out there. My all time favorite, however, is Captain Dave’s “Flight Level 390″ blog.

.

A while back it disappeared from blogspot and I did not find anybody who knew much about it. This is tragic and I miss Captain Dave’s view on the world from above a lot. After all he was an inportant inspiration and influence on me to start this blog!

.

I hope you are well, Dave! And I hope to read from you again in the future. Happy Landings until then!
