Re: UCAP #466 - "Crush Your Soul"

I propose the "Skyhawk" as 385 nm, or 3.5 hours @ 110 knots.

And Jack, I don't remember exactly which airport you and Jeb mentioned in the podcast, but you're surprisingly (to me at least) well within one Skyhawk of several Lehigh Valley airports with good on-field eateries.

UCAP #414 - "Debbie's Older Sister"

Jeb, Re: KDCA If you insist on calling DCA by its former name, then I get to call NYC's gateway international airport as Idlewild (KIDL). What about the airport in Latrobe (KLBE) being renamed for Arnold Palmer? You win some, you lose some; and sometimes it rains. :D ( Airports named after US Presid...
