Check out Art's Aviation Website for all sorts of useful aviation information and dozens of links to other flying websites. Art Flior is a CFI and a FOC (friend of Cindy), so you know he's a good guy. What a perfect place to go to wake up with the morning coffee and you might learn something useful too!
