    BTSR- Were you flying out of Nassau Flyers at KFRG? I did some training there last summer until the day I walked in and was told that my instructor had abruptly quit and that I had to do yet another "let's send you up for an eval with " on my dime. I liked flying out of KFRG, it's about the only place left on Long Island that's connected to aviation. I got a thrill thinking of the F-105s and Hellcats that took off from the same runways that I was using. I'm planning to take my PPL check ride at the end of this month. Yesterday I completed my first solo x-country and will of my long x-country on Friday.

      @bigtruckseriesreview @ Youtube No, I'm not familiar with Fine Edge Fliers. Is that that a flying club? I have to check my log book, I think I may have flown the same 172 that you did.

    I found my log book and flight training manuals in a dusty bag in the garage over the weekend. Oh for those care-free days from my twenties before mortgages, family and 401k's ruled my financial life.

    A lot of pilots here. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. People interested in moving machinery have all sorts of crossovers: boats, cars, airplanes, tractors, etc. I'd guess we have a good percentage of divers here also. I'm an Embraer 145 pilot. I have about 700 hours in Cessnas.

    What? A lousy video of a LOUDMOUTH flying a plane. Editorial license, and not at its best. Here's a flying video worth watching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxOSkzlTDGc
