  1. 4 Tips For Preparing to Go On a Long Distance Flight

    If you've only flown short distances, flying might be something you consider a breeze. Just pack a magazine and a snack and you'll be fine for a couple of hours. But flying long distances, sometimes 12 hours or more, is a whole other ballgame. You'll have to be prepared for the challenges, both physical and mental, of your journey. Here are a few tips for making your next long-distance flight a little easier.

  2. Washington, D.C. to New York

    Washington D.C.:From Norfolk, Virginia, I flew the Cherokee Six to Reagan Airport in D.C. Once again, even though I knew there was a lot of water in the area, the extent of shoreline was surprising. The approach into Reagan follows the Potomac River, and the national monuments were easily visible, but I decided to land and go sightseeing the next flight.

    After resigning myself to fly without my beloved CH yoke, I was determined to get to Miami. It did not take long to get used to using the joystick; I didn’t really use the mixture or prop controls that much, anyway. (Never worry about fuel price or engine damage on the computer.) The mouse could be used to adjust trim, and the C172 is very stable once trimmed out.

    Once again I spawned at Okeechobee heading north, but I back-taxied on the runway to take off to the south. (The twist ...
  5. What the Best Airlines Offer During Overnight Flights

    Anyone who has flown a bit knows that airlines sell seats by category. Each category has specific policies regarding baggage, cancellations, and rebooking fees. Beyond the ticket policies, each class of ticket provides specific amenities, and depending on the airlines, they can be quite accommodating. If you choose the no-frills, basic economy ticket for your travel, your experience will be significantly different than those purchasing first-class accommodations. These differences become more pronounced ...
