For those of you that may be following my attempts to complete one of the items on my bucket list ('get an article published in a magazine'), here's an update:
You may recall that EAA Sport Aviation had responded to my submission of the formation clinic article with a request to shorten it up a bit. I did so and re-submitted the article. In their most recent communication, they said that the 2nd draft was still a bit too long, but that it was close enough that they could do the final edits themselves. Once they have done so and gained my approval of the edits, they said that they would schedule the article for publication.
