SOOO, pick an airport, drive or fly in, grab a photo with the UCAP sign in the background, then post it here?? Perhaps grab a nice burger at the same time! (I could go back & listen to #67, but hey, I'm too lazy this morning!!)

hey, hey... no driving! That's cheating. You have to fly there. It's okay if someone else is flying just as long as it's a GA flight. Otherwise, I think that we just made up the rules.

Got a chance to fly in California this past weekend. Big thrill for an East Coast kid to fly around the San Francisco bay and up the Napa valley. The fog had come into the shore and over the Golden Gate bridge, yet the east side of the bay was clear and sunny. Fantastic topography in the bay area.

We flew out and back into Gnoss airport (KDVO). So now I have 1.2 hours of west coast PIC time!

While I admire the idea of flying only, I personally think that driving is OK, esp for those non- (but soon to be-) flying aviation fans out there.

And no, I don't mind you folks taking the lead with this.

OK, well, much as I'd love to fly more often than I do, it's quite a lot more expensive here Down Under, so I may have to improvise occasionally and use the car. My local airport is located next to a rural highway....maybe if I got my old '98 Ford Falcon up to about 150 km/h on the way over, that would be classed as "flying", wouldn't it???

I used to have a '68 Ford Falcon. The only way it could see 150km/hr is if it were dropped from a C130 or off of a cliff. It would do 70mph (112kph) but it wasn't happy at that speed.

Ford still make the Falcon brand here. They just released a new model this year - the last model to come with an Aussie made in line 4.0 litre 6. Nice, real nice!
