Airport Database by Wizard of Draws
Does anyone know where I can lay my hands on an airport database with name, ID, lat/long and elevation? I've found two from separate sources that are close, but each is missing at least one element that I'd like to have and I don't relish the thought of trying to merge them into one. -- Jeff 'The...

Senate Bill S.786 could kill NWS internet weather products by FlyBoy
As a private pilot, I make frequent use of the NWS's Aviation Digital Data Service (see 1). I especially like their "Java Tools" graphic presentations of METAR, TAF, and AIR/SIGMET data. Senate Bill S. 786 (see 2) could well kill such NWS weather presentations in favor of private sector...

EAA Hops and Props - OSH by Jim Burns
Well, we survived. Didn't get drunk. Didn't fly any airplanes after our beer. Didn't crash our car on the way home. Only a data point of 1, but maybe pilots really can get close to airplanes while drinking alcohol without becoming statistics! :) Saturday evening my wife and I attended the EAA...

How safe is a new teenaged pilot? by anon
Our 17 year old son want to fly as a passenger with his 17 year old friend who is a brand new pilot. We think the boy is level-headed and mature. He grew up flying with his dad who is a retired test pilot for an aircraft manufacturer. These credentials not withstanding, I'm guessing that there...

Lakewood NJ is looking into selling its airport, which it purchased about a decade ago, to be used for other uses. The airport commission isn't happy about that, but the municipal government has its own ideas... ---- Township Attorney Steven Secare said Lakewood may be able to sell the 192-acre...

My friend and I are planning a flight in a new Cirrus 22. We intend to leave Denver May 26 and would appreciate the groups thoughts as to possible routing. Is it practical to go a direct as possible? Or would the best advice be to travel south then west to avoid crossing the mountains. Any...

I'm (hopefully) taking my first trip to South Lake Tahoe on Sunday as part of a mountain flying checkout with my club. I noticed that the control tower is no longer active - but the AF/D (and sectional) still has the Class D active during normal hours. I know it doesn't really matter from...

Went to Dallas IFR from Mobile on Wednesday, my first time to fly there. It's a 475 nm trip, about 3.5 hours in my C172RG with a little lucky tailwind. I filed BFM MCB GGG direct DAL. As expected, when I got near DFW Regional airspace, I got an amendment to my clearance: direct GGG, DUMPY2...

evidently there have been some 180+ aircraft 'incursions' that for some reason didn't get into the news item. I'd worry more about the trucks on the nearby roads

Would a NASA form help? by Jesse Wright
Just had a thought... could the two pilots who busted the DC restricted airspace avoid a certificate action by filing an ASRS report? Here's my thought process on this. Was the violation inadvertant? Probably so. From the limited reports that I have seen, they were aware of the restricted zones...

Discussion on dealing with future ADIZ Incursions by light A/C by Hank Rausch
I would like to start a thread on what I see as the most pertinent take-away from yesterday's incursion: How can the current responses be modified to make the response more relevant to the threat, when the inevitable occurs again and a pilot gets lost? Assuming pilots won't get lost in the future...
