The department of transportation has fined American Eagle Airlines $900,000 for recent delays on the tarmac exceeding three hours. Didn’t I read somewhere that the airlines have been deregulated? Are the fines a deterrent to delays or a revenue enhancement for the government? I doubt very seriously if any airline purposely plans to have one of its airplanes sitting on the ground for three…Continue

"On the Wings of Eagles" a true story of a barnstormer who became the National Flight Instructor of the Year in 1981. amazon.com $3.99"
I'll check out that book :) I was thinking this week, as I devour every book I can find on and related to aviation, there just aren't enough aviation books out there. Not to mention reading the older aviation books written in the 60s and 70s with the formal writing style of that age... its surprising how even writing styles change in 40 years.
I've had what I consider a bit more than my fair share of adventures in flying so far.. that's one of the things I love about it... the adventure. You never know what you're going to encounter or what you'll be called to do up there. And yes, I am going for an instrument rating too. I'm meeting with my CFI later this week to map out the next steps in my aviation career... so much to do and learn!
Loved the Meteor Crater story ... !
Happy to see someone busy writing more about aviation !
