    FlyNano is it a rehash of a Ligetti Stratos?

    The Extra and Edge aren't racing airplanes. Try the Laser series York Enterprises - Laser Aircraft Or Dan Rihn's designs from Ashcraft Aero Works -- Kits and Plans for Aerobatic Airplanes

    Cessna debuts turbodiesel 182 new Xtreme Decathlon

    When a new 172 has a price tag over $300,000, I think this is a bargain.:roll:

    Commercial Ag Application in E-LSA

    This is a career and you have to start at the bottom. If your dream is to be an airline pilot, then the regionals are pretty much the only way to do that.

    I got layed off by Delta.
