Hello Flyover Reader!

Today is set aside for feasting, family, and thankfulness. 

We’ve got plenty to be grateful for here at The Flyover—starting with you. We mean it; without our loyal family of readers, we’d have to taxi into an empty hangar somewhere and leave The Flyover to rust. 

Thankfully, we’re taking off six days per week with 470,000 of you. Honestly, this has grown even faster than we thought it would, and we count it as an honor to have each of you as a passenger on our journey. 

We don’t charge any airfare for The Flyover, and we never will. Our goal is to deliver a quality news product to as many people as possible. We rely on the kindness and generosity of our readers, and you have blown us away with your support!

If you can count The Flyover as something to be thankful for this year, would you drop us a tip?
