    Most of my email is pretty routine stuff, but sometimes I get caught off guard. It's really kind of shocking what some people think of our beloved hobby, for example this email just received (paraphrased a bit, and atrocious grammar and spelling corrected):

    I have read articles regarding web sites that are trying to turn people away from the hobby. Some of the reading is so shocking that web sites will do anything just for the money. FlightSim.Com ...

  2. Owls Head Transportation Museum

    One of my favorite flying destinations is the Owls Head museum, located right on the Maine seacoast in Rockland. It's a very scenic flight up there and just the right distance...too far to drive but a perfect day trip by light plane. About twice a month they have some kind of themed vehicle show and this weekend it was cars of the 50's and 60's. Plus they fly many of their old planes, when the winds permit and of course there is the museum itself.

    Most of the planes they fly are from ...

  4. Flightsim Meets Real Aviation

    This is the time of year here in New England that I start thinking about outside aviation activities in addition to flightsimming. This past weekend I attended my first aviation event of the year, a little open house at one of the local airports. Even small events have their little pleasures (in addition to the hamburgs and hot dogs!) and this one offered a look at the Terrafugia Transition, the roadable light sport aircraft. I've seen the videos...it really is a car that flies (or a plane that ...

  5. Single Login Is Here

    This month FlightSim.Com completes another major upgrade: single login. For some years now we've had a situation where FlightSim.Com was almost like two separate web sites, with one registration (login name/password) required for the file library and a second registration required for the message forums. We're not the only site that has this problem, but it is confusing for many people.

    The problem is that the file library software and forum software are written by different people ...
