    Thanks to a successful collaboration at Concordia, simulating the experience of being an aircraft pilot is now as easy as using a joystick with a computer that has an Internet connection. Ensuring a safe landing though — that part is still difficult.

    U.S. air show planned to re-enact atomic bomb attack on Japan
    Toronto Star
    A popular air show has cancelled plans to stage a re-enactment of the devastating World War II atomic bomb attack on Japan after protests, officials said. Dayton Air Show spokeswoman Brenda Kerfoot said the June 22-23 event at Dayton International Airport will keep a planned "Great Wall of Fire" pyrotechnic show but not as an event meant to re-enact the Aug. 6, 1945, bombing of Hiroshima. The B-29 plane "Fifi," similar to the Enola Gay B-29 bomber used to attack Japan, will remain in the show but in a separate role.

    How loud does a 'whisper jet' sound? It depends
    The Globe and Mail
    It's 4:30 on a rainy afternoon near the foot of Bathurst Street, and somewhere up above the drone of turboprop engines is getting louder. The incoming plane materializes out of the clouds, heading for Toronto's island airport. Its wheels touch the runway and a few seconds later the plane reverse-thrusts to slow itself down. At that moment the noise level suddenly peaks and, even with a stiff wind blowing the sound away from shore, it's a distraction.

    With handy island airport, Toronto can jet ahead
    Ottawa Citizen
    It may be hard for many Canadians to accept, but Toronto is rapidly becoming one of the most important cities in North America. In relation to other major municipalities, the city is growing in population and relevance. It's more cosmopolitan, entrepreneurial and multicultural than ever before. And compared to cities of a similar size in the U.S., it's remarkably clean and safe. And hey, Toronto’s hockey team just made the playoffs for the first time in nine years. So it has that going for it.

    The impact of sequestration on travel to the U.S.
    COPA
    I never heard of the word sequestration until the U.S. fiscal condition resulted in measures to curtail spending. While to a certain extent sequestration does not affect Canada, some U.S. government services that we need, such as Customs, are being curtailed.
