Hello Flyover Reader!

Today, we’re sending our very last edition of 2023.

About a year ago, our small team sat around a table and started dreaming about building an email newsletter that everyday Americans would actually want. No bias. No bloat. Just the news. (And a little fun).

A few days later, we quit dreaming and got to work. On March 17th, we sent our first edition to less than 50 friends and family members. Yesterday, we delivered The Flyover to over 520,000 people. 


That’s a heck of a year, and it never would have happened without your support. Thanks for reading and telling your friends about us. We appreciate you! 

Now, we’re turning our attention to the future. We’ve recently hired two more employees to help with writing and editing, and we’re focused on improving The Flyover‘s quality in 2024 and delivering even more content. 

Despite our large number of readers, we’re still a small operation and could use your help. 

If you’ve enjoyed The Flyover this year, would you help us cover our increasing expenses?

I’m amazed at the level of support you’ve all shown this year, and I take it as confirmation that we’re building something worthwhile. 

Here’s to an even better 2024 together!
