 I just don't understand ...
WebAdmin Caroline Mayne writes :- Hi Folks .. You’re probably wondering why I haven’t updated the site in a while!? .. Well, it’s simple … I struggle to stay ahead of the hackers.

Some people in this world are just interested in breaking stuff; perhaps they’re jealous, maybe just immature kids or they’ve been poisoned to hate all things American. Whatever the reason, I’m addressing you, “Dearest Hackers” - I feel sorry for you; that you have nothing better to do than deface my website and feel the constant need to break it. I’m sorry your life sucks that bad and that your heart is so full of hate! – I do however forgive you and pray you find better purpose in your life!

I’m not racist, sexist or naďve to other religions and faiths - I just love to fly airplanes and share in my interest with other pilots here in the good ol’ U S of A.

Kindest regards, Caroline

Happy, Safe Flying!

 Site Updates ...
WebAdmin Caroline writes :- It came to my attention that people were unable to register; attempts resulting in an error.  I also discovered numerous other "bugs" probably as a cause of past hacking!  Soooo, I rebuilt the site yesterday.  The site is using the latest and greatest code and I've managed to migrate the existing database across.  It all seems to be working just fine but your input is always appreciated!

I don't have any real thoughts for improving this USAPILOT.COM and have even considered selling the domain - I don't seem to have much time anymore!  I guess we'll just see, I might surprise you all!!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the site and happy, safe flying to you all!  Caroline

 2006 - Update!!
WebAdmin Hi Folks - I'm sorry for the recent lack of updates to the site! Frankly, I get a little disheartened, when we get hacked and it's always harder to bounce back and inject new resources into the site! My apologies too, for those that have registered in the last six months - My backup database is a little out-of-date.

So, I have made some updates and patches and updated the weather panels. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to contribute your ideas!

Happy, safe flying! Caroline

 FAA Unveil Sport Pilot Ruling
FAA FAA Administrator Marion Blakey on Tuesday released the Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft rule in an effort to enhance the fun of aviation, help shatter cost barriers, and allow already certificated pilots to fly once again using a driver's license in lieu of a medical certificate. When it goes into effect on September 1, it will introduce a new level of pilot certificate and category of low-performance aircraft with takeoff weights of up to 1,320 pounds and maximum airspeeds of 120 knots. While it could take some time for the industry to fully gear up to produce new airplanes and the FAA to train pilot examiners and draft written tests, the really good news for many AOPA members is that they can be back in the air in a matter of weeks, thanks in large part to AOPA's efforts. "It was important to AOPA that our members who love and support general aviation, but no longer have a current medical, be able to fly again," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "That's why we asked the FAA to make the rule effective quickly, and they responded." For more information and to read a story about an 83-year-old pilot who will be taking full advantage of the initiative, see AOPA Online for full story.
