Four years into my career in defense/composite structure repair and I'm starting to feel a little rusty on things outside of my niche, so this is my first attempt at trying to use online information to stay somewhat sharp, or at least relevant. With that said, here's my question:

What forums (besides this one, of course), websites, RSS feeds, etc do you follow to stay up on industry news and to keep sharp on your area of expertise and/or a breadth of aeronautic topics?

RE: Suggested online sources

mit opencourse.

i wouldn't look to forums to "re-sharpen" your skills. i think this is a resource that can help problem solve.

if you like the repair world, i'd suggest the "Boeing" Stress Liaison course, at U.Kansas i think.

RE: Suggested online sources

Thanks, rb, you're right. And I'm not really looking to a forum as a way to sharpen skills, more just to keep my mind active on topics a little broader than my niche. I could phrase the question more as: what sites do you folks keep up with, besides say aviation weekly, to keep informed on the field. And what forums do you find worth contributing to?

I've looking around a bit and found airliners.net (forum) and of course there is news/articles on aviation weekly.
