Sad news.

Why does the media insist on "stunts" instead of aerobatics or a similar more accurate word? Does anyone ever "roll the roll," or "spin the spin?" Or, do people just "loop the loop?"...

Foreign hours count

Around Atlanta you can find dozens of places to fly. Many of them are probably pretty busy. I wouldn't wait too long to set something up. If you head out of town a bit you'll find the...

What training would you like to do?
