New Post

You would like to add a new post in our forums?  Great!  Remember, we have a wide range of registered members and a huge amount of knowledge in this forum, so you’re likely to get a high quality response.  We don’t just cover long distance IFR flying and welcome questions on all topics related to General Aviation.
Pick from the topics below, though don’t stress over it – if you post in the wrong topic we may move your question.  As a shortcut, most general flying conversation happens in “Flying”.  General chat is in “Hangar Talk”.  And questions from less experienced pilots (though not exclusively) go in “Learning & Starting Out”.  If you’re really not sure, pick “Flying”.
Please note you will get a better response if you have filled in your profile at least to some extent.
