Over the past 10 years, the number of aviation related informational websites has proliferated.
Some of these are frequented by pilots and others with an interest in aviation.
Among our favorite resources when we want to learn something are sites run by the EAA, the
AOPA and the FAA.
The EAA website has a variety of resources, but among our favorites is a primer for potential
student pilots, called "Reach for the Sky". Many years ago the AOPA launched a similar initiative
called "Be a Pilot" to build the pilot population. The current version of which is "Let's Go Flying"
and the website continues to contain a plethora of information and resources for student pilots.
The FAA has a variety of sites with valuable information. Among the best is their collection of
online student pilot resources.
And when we want to bone up on the latest news (especially Europe aviation news) we always
go to the same place: The "Rumours & News" forum at the Professional Pilots Rumour Network.

Did you know?...
You can build your own airplane.
Among the categories of aircraft that
can be registered in the US is
"Experimental Amateur-Built". To
qualify an airplane needs more than
50% of the work in building the
airplane must be performed by the
owner, not the company. Luckily, the
50% refers to the man-hours used, so
an efficient factory can create a kit and
the owner can then complete it in high
hundreds to a few thousand hours. If
you are interested, you should check
out the EAA page.
