Cirrus SR22 demo flight by [email protected]

Great Lakes Temperature Charts by Happy Dog

anyone ever met Burt Rutan? by jim
Was watching a video on the minivan that Bert designed and shot into space. He seems like a interesting person but I can't believe he is that laided back when designing planes and minvans that fly into outer space, is he a dick or a cool dude?

Are there any requirements (for either the pilot or the aircraft) for towing a banner (specifically using a late model C172S)? I'm a private pilot with about 145 hours TT and no banner towing experience. The only reason I ask is that my fiance and I are planning on getting married in Sedona, AZ...

The last couple students I've sent for checkrides have taken about 6 hours. This is with two different examiners. Both did excellent on the oral.
