    Default Something I learned today

    KATN. Atlanta Airport, Atlanta is not where you think it is and is no place to spawn your A320. Probably pretty good fishing though.

    Default Rockcliffe

    Is this your name, Rockcliffe? I ask as it happens to be where I learnt to fly in Ottawa.

    Turns out that KATN is a grass strip in Atlanta, in northern Michigan. I’m sure the locals were surprised to see an A320 suddenly appear for takeoff.

    Well, I’m an Ottawa guy. And I once took an intro flight at CYRO.* But it’s really just one of those names that pops into your head at registration time all those years ago.
    At least it’s a little more sonorous than another online name I use: Carp.

    * Cooler still, when I was a kid I won a raffle for a circuit of Ottawa in a Vickers Vanguard out of Rockcliffe.

    Default Rockcliffe and Carp

    And I made both those for FS9, and a bunch of others in the neighborhood.
