“If your destination is less than 100 miles you drive. If it is more than 500 miles you take an airliner. If it is someplace in between, you take it.”

“We have one on order. This is the first time I have gotten to see it.”

“Airports used to be an attraction, like the circus coming to town. Now they are part of the infrastructure, like a bridge. You don’t notice the bridge until it collapses and kills people. Similarly, people don’t notice their airports until they are threatened.”
— Alan Lyscars, AOPA Airport Support Network representative from Biddeford, Maine.
“I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things…”
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
