Ghost Ship by Jay Honeck
The silver plane sits lightly on the tarmac, gazing skyward at that cocky angle that makes taxiing a Stearman such a chore. It is clearly ready for flight. It's been sitting there for three days, as I write this. Full of gas, fabric freshly redone, immaculately painted -- all dressed up, with no...

Google Maps by MC
Anyone seen the new feature of Google maps.google.com search for your favorite airport identifier, then click on the satellite view in the upper left hand corner. Google keeps putting out amazing stuff. Matt

a quick question: local procedures FRG-HPN transition by Journeyman
Planning a flight tomorrow to BOS-FRG (Farmingdale, on Long Island). My home airport is HPN (White Plains), about 15 minutes North. After I drop off my passenger, what's the best way to get back into White Plains? FRG and HPN have different NY Approach frequencies, and HPN is a pseudo class C. ...

Confession time (long) by Alan
In my 10+ years of flying, I've set several personal minimums for myself. One of them is to never be in the air with much less than half tanks of fuel. My Skylane burns 11.5gph like clockwork and holds 65 gallons total in both wings, 55 gallons useable. I usually fly for about 2.5 or 3 hours...

Newbie VOR question by Bruce W.1
I'm not a pilot but I have been reading up on VOR stations. And I'm looking for practical information. You can calculate your position by triangulating from two VOR stations. How many pilots do this? Or do most just fly between omnis? When you fly cross country do you just fly VOR to VOR, or do...

Any New York City pilots? by No Such User
Perhaps someone from the NYC area can identify for me a closed airport. It appeared quite large from the air, so it must have been someplace important at some time. It's marked as a closed airport on the New York terminal chart, on the 260 radial from JFK, near the OGY NDB. Does anyone know the...

Here we go again by Roger
We have some turf wars going on and it looks like the pilots may be the losers. First: we have a small airport with two runways 18/36 at 3000' X 75 and 06/24 at 3800' X 75. No scheduled flights or even charters at present. We are finally reaching the point where pilots are congregating around a...

FBO Purchase worth it ? by Toņo
Hi all, I have a friend that is about to purchase a small FBO. Now we all know that owning a small FBO is a labor of love at the very least. However, he is wondering if it is really financial suicide given the trends of today's laws, governmental regs, legislation, TSA, etc. His (my) question...

Owning vs. charter vs. airlines by Scott Jensen
There is usually a point where it is cheaper to do it yourself than have someone else do it for you. What I'm wondering is what would that point be when it comes to trans-world air travel. When does buying your own jet and employing your own pilots make economic sense than using an airline? ...

Interesting ELT fact by Ben Jackson
I just discovered that my ELT (Pointer Model 3000-10) has a microphone jack on it. Of course, in any accident where I would be able to take advantage of that I probably would have checked the ELT for proper operation and discovered it. Still, it's a good thing to be aware of. I'm surprised I'd...

AOPA Credit Card scam by George Patterson
AOPA warns that someone is trying the scam of spamming pilots saying that MBNA needs for them to verify their account info. These mails are not from MBNA. Do not click on the link. This, by the way, is true of every similar scam. No legitimate company will send you mail asking for account info by...

Ping Hilton by Steve Foley
Hilton, I'd like to apologize for my 'troll' response. I have been reading the TSA BS about the 'GA Threat', aliens being denied flight training, and the rest of the BS going on, and then I saw your post. I replied too quickly without thinking , and am sorry if I offended you. Steve Foley

Any recommendations or suggestions about where one can get checked out in a 172 anywhere in the Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Lansing, or Grand Rapids areas of Michigan. I'll be five days there this July and want to take some family members sightseeing.

Would you go? by Dan Luke
You have to take off at dawn to pick up an Angel Flight patient 200 miles away, so you call the FBO the night before to have the airplane pulled out and fueled. When you arrive at the airport, you find the fuel truck parked in front of the airplane, blocking it. The FBO is locked up and no one's...
