    Back country pilots wanted!!

Where I live in WI, you can't go a mile into town without seeing at least 5 signs that say "Hiring, starting at $16/hr" But, I know at least 3 people who claim they need jobs, they just want to work in the field...

    X-country flight from WI to NH

    Liquid cooled / fuel injected A65 cylinders

    X-country flight from WI to NH

    How possible would a flight from KHXF to KEEN in a Piper Super Cruiser? In December? Skyvector says it will take me about 10 hours, but that is for today's weather. Are there any tools that let me use typical December weather to factor in for a flight? I know this is not related to Experimental...

    Jurca Plans West

    What happened to Jurca Plans West? Whenever I look for it, it comes up as "for sale." And, are the plans that you get from France in French, or is there an English version? I have been to the French website, but all of the Google translate-isms are kind of...Interesting.
