More information that anyone could possibly ever use

As pilots, we are always learning, and we suck up information much like a Hoover sucks up dog hair off the living room rug. We are constantly searching for the pot o'gold at the end of the rainbow, that fountain of information we can scour for new knowledge.

With that said, let me introduce you to Gene Whitt, a CFI who has long been active at Concord, CA's Buchanan Field. Gene likes to write (oh boy does he ever), and likes to compile stories, facts, teaching tips and anything else related to learning to fly. His site is whittsflying.com, and I recommend only going there if you have LOTS of time on your hands...it is rather lengthy and addictive.

The site is broken down into VFR and IFR sections, but if you must start somewhere, his statistics page is a great place to launch from.
