Hmm, the western PA yankees are filing in, may as well add to the collection.
Home base is McVille (p37), a small but friendly grass strip, but I live almost exactly in between McVille and Rock (9g1 - formerly West Penn; now you could say formerly an airport :-lol - a new runway is being built there). I live just outside Natrona Heights.
A lot of PIT traffic comes over this area. Either a visual approach following the Allegheny River or just a coincidence.
Love the small restaraunt at Zelienople!

yes...last time i was over by the "Rockport" it was raining so hard i thought the entire runway had washed away! Love crusing over the allegheny valley with my mom (a Natrona Heights native and a Highlands '73 grad!)- very scenic especially in fall. Try "The Runway" restaurant at Butler County sometime- great views and a little more traffic! happy flying

I never thought I would see this sentence in an FS forum! :o :D
But FS2002 isn't released in Sweden yet, so I'm wondering; does it really treat you like a dog? ;-)

LAST EDITED ON Nov-02-01 AT 10:01PM (EDT)[p]Don't intend to make you feel 'older,' but I'll be a 2003 (30 years later-wow) graduate of Highlands. Did you know they're tearing down the old football stadium at the Middle School? (used to be Har-Brack H.S. - my mom grad. from there in '67) The new stadium is going to be built inside the track I think, and the Middle School is being renovated/added-on to.
LET'S GO PENS! LET'S GO PENS!
As if losing Kovy and Mario for a month wasn't bad enough, we've lost Marty for a year! :'( I can't wait until the Pens play the Caps. I want to see Kasparaitis hit Jagr so hard that #68 is out of the Caps lineup for a year due to a groin (or shoulder) injury :-lol I'm sure at least a few Pittsburgh fans would appreciate that last comment.
EDIT: By the way, if you happen to be flying around here and hear the callsign "Cessna 5432H," don't get any 'ideas.' There's only a small chance it would be me (it's a rental at McVille). There's about a 25% chance if the voice you hear doesn't sound as deep as all the other voices on the radio (there are 2 or 3 teens taking lessons at P37). I just like that plane a lot. It's the plane I made my long x-country and took my PPL checkride in.

Glasgow, Scotland. ICAO code is EGPF. Scenery by Iain Gallacher is best for all Scottish Airports. I generally fly out/into Glasgow International or Edinburgh International. I use other English based airports such as Manchester or London Heathrow to integrate with the large amount of traffic generated at these airports.
I hope flightsimming will become truly interactive one day. Our thoughts are with New York + America at this time.
