    New Waiex Owner

    It's been awhile since I posted anything here, as I've just been in and out to see what's what for quite some time.

    ATC changing from radar to GPS?

    This morning while driving to work, I heard a short news clip on the radio which mentioned ATC was going to be making a change from radar based to GPS based tracking. I didn't get to listen to the entire thing so I didn't hear if this was a proposed plan or a new Administrative Regulation which...

    Hi everyone. I'm Tom and I'm addicted to flying:gig: I'm actually not even a pilot yet but have been lucky enough to go up for a couple of flights and all it took was 1 flight to get me addicted and bring me to the realization that I need to fly. I've wanted to get my PPL for a few years now...
