    I have a friend of mine who just moved back home to Dallas, TX and is looking to find some sort of flying opportunities in the area. I Dallas is quite the area and am not sure exactly where he lives but once he gets back from his honeymoon, I can find out. He's at about 500TT and has his single & multi-commercial certificates. Does anyone know any tips or have any directions I can point him towards? A connection or two would be great. I'm not familiar with anything in the area at all.

    Well, Dallas is BIG, so where he really is in the grand scheme will make a big difference in opportunities. If he is north there are clubs at Denton, McKinney, and one other place I can't think of. Rental opportunities at all those as well. Centrally located is Addison. East is Mesquite. South is a bunch a stuff. West is a bunch a stuff. Have him look me up. We'll go putt around in the 182

    It's been awhile, but he says his closest fields are Dallas Love, Dallas Exec, & Addison. If your offer still stands, I can PM his information so you can talk. I know he'd appreciate anything right now.

    No, his family is doing a great job of making him want to leave. PM me and I'll see what I can put together.

    A bit of a "threadjack" here, but that sounds pretty damn unfortunate.

    Sounds like he's in Dallas proper, since those are really the three principle airports within the city limits. You might warn him that DFWPilots can be slow sometimes so don't fret if he doesn't get a response right away.
