Wichita, KS. August 5, 2008 — The aviation web site, Wings Over Kansas, www.wingsoverkansas.com, has introduced a new feature page called, "Kansas Aviation Legacy." The new feature was created to build a database of retrievable Kansas aviation history information to be published on the web site, Wings Over Kansas. Feature articles will be added to the new page on a programmed basis to build an extensive archive of articles. Kansas’ long and storied aviation history began soon after World War I and included names like Cessna, Beech, Swallow, Stearman, Mooney, Swift, and later Boeing-Wichita and Learjet. Over the years, the state has been host to about eighty aircraft manufacturers. Today the major players are, Boeing Integrated Services, Cessna Aircraft Company, Hawker Beechcraft, Bombardier/Learjet and Spirit AeroSystems. A wing design component of Airbus North America has a project operation in Wichita. These manufacturers and hundreds of aviation sub-contractors have made Wichita, the "Air Capital of the World."
Wings Over Kansas website owner/editor Carl Chance said, "For nearly nine decades, the development of aviation has unfolded naturally and yet extraordinarily under the vision and creativity of the states aviation pioneers. Yet despite the unparalleled heritage we have here, few have adequately told the story. My goal is to have a major influence in expanding that magnificent story."
Chance doesn’t stop with his focus on aviation history but has also made aviation news, feature articles, education, photos, videos, careers, learn-to-fly and much more aviation resources a weekly discovery for visitors to www.wingsoverkansas.com. Much of these resources are attributable to the content contributions of a host of valued writers, authors and historians. Collectively, they are the magical glue that holds this website up to the Internet audience to discover the treasure that lies within its pages.
