    I was fortunate that the first time I flew into FLD but while I was at the show, Bertorelli got me a tour of both the tower and Fisk so I got to see the ops from the ATC end. Next year, I flew in...

    If I recall properly, back when there was a separate "flight line" admission, there were three ways in: The brown arch, through warbirds, and along Whitman road near the Vintage red barn.

    I've had friends who parked and camped there without issues. I think the stuff that was recently added to the EAA was not this property but across the diagnonal road where they're rumored to be...

    The parking only rows were done away with in 2019 (much to my appreciation, I never liked the idea).

    Backfilling is usually dependent on how aggressive the workers are at finding the spaces and...

    There's Tony's Taxi but I'm not sure how you'd reach them. Down in vintage, we usually have one of their radios to give them a call.

    Uber/Lyft and Oshkosh Cab shouldn't be a problem either. ...

    As of 2019, I believe there isn't any difference. It used to be that there were parking-only rows North of roughly where the Hangar Cafe is. I never much cared for it or the explanation of why...

    Hey RonW! Bi-Fly Baby in Sport Aviation

    Isn't that a FlyBaby in Budd Davisson's article on biplanes? There's no caption (nor does it even mention Fly Babies in the article).

    I'll warn you about AOPA medical phone help. It's not very good, and one of the reasons I ended up grounded a few years back.
