    Looking for current DC pilots

    Hey guys! I’m wrapping up my IR at KGAI with Pilot in Training, and I am relatively new to the local aviation community since I’ve been in the DC area for about a year.

    The Adventure Begins at Currahee Mountain

    Toccoa is situated in North Georgia and was used during WWII as a training base for the paratroopers. It was the setting for the first Band of Brothers episode. We flew our Mooney there to check out the Currahee Military Museum and the Currahee Mountain.

    Is a plane faster than a car over 126 miles?

    I recently decided to test, which one is faster. Dropped a video of the trip on YT. This was a flight through busy Atlanta class bravo. Let me know in the video comments if you like the “24” style format. Had a lot of fun flying and creating the video.

    Grumman Tiger Vs Mooney M20C or E

    So I've been hunting for a plane for months now and I'm down to these. My mental debate right now is operating costs. The vintage Mooney M20 C or E with the manual johnson bar gear and constant speed prop...how much more do these factors add in maintenance costs versus a fixed gear Grumman...

    M20K Owners

    My partner and I have zeroed in on an M20K as our plane of choice. We were contemplating several different models in the M20 series, but as part of our individual missions, we will both need to fly from the Midwest over the Rockies, and the Turbo seems like a must-have for that. I have owned in...

    Cockpit size

    Mission: 2 seats and a little baggage. 300+ nm X-Country + IFR. The most bang-for-the-buck seem to be experimentals. I thought the Thorp T-18 was the perfect answer: great performance, simple, low cost of entry... Until I sat in one recently. I'm not huge...6' and 180lbs, but my knees were...
