US pilots licences and photographs by Sylvia Else
This is background research for an article I'm writing. Can someone tell me whether the FAA (or other agency) retains a photograph of people who hold private pilot's licences in the USA? Sylvia.

L-18 Birddog aerobatics? by Marten Kemp
So, writing a story where a bunch of young college-age women discover some crated L-19s in a corner of a hangar. I'm planning that they assemble them under the watchful eye of a semi-retired pilot and A&P who can sign off on the FAA paperwork. Once the airplanes are assembled and flying, then...

Pay for your OWN traffic control. FAA has NO idle staff that works for free. EAA charges outragous prices for tickets and can afford to PAY UP. Sweet Jehovah, what a self important and arrogant bunch !!!

Anybody take a small plane into LAX? Is it crazy? by Bug Dout
I know a guy who flew his Ercoupe into JFK, so that it could be disassembled and shipped to Europe. I think they wanted him to arrive in the early morning hours, but he did it. If you still want to try it, find the tower phone number and give them a call. You'll have to figure out an FBO to keep...
