    Howdy pilots!

    Just checking in here with you all. I'm taking the ATSAT this week. I studied aviation flight at Ohio U and grad in 2005. My family owns a 2007 Cirrus SR-22 and I try to get it up as much as possible (not much lately, after starting a new business in February). I am planning a trip to Austin, TX for Thanksgiving and will be taking my 7 month old son for his first BIG flight. *fingers crossed*

    My main focus right now is in the ATC forums, but I'll have to check things out in here as well.

    Welcome. Plenty of pilots around, GA and commercial.

    Where you flying into when you come up (down?) here to Austin? I learned to fly in Georgetown, just north of Austin. Tie-downs and fuel are reasonably priced, about a 15 minute drive to downtown, which isn't much further if you fly into the more expensive Austin-Bergstrom Int'l.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm planning on going to Lakeway (3R9) because the friends/family we're visiting live in Lake Travis. Airnav has their current fuel prices @ $3.99, which isn't bad.

    Lakeway's nice -- my grandparents used to live about a block from there when I was growing up. Did my first XC there too. Kind of a weird hilly runway. Watch out for sightseers over Lake Travis; there's occasionally a helicopter that likes to wander around at about 2000' or so.

    We just made it back to Ohio from Lakeway, TX. The trip was a blast. The friends we visited live in a gorgeous ranch about a mile from the airport at the top of one of the hills. I logged 4 hours of IMC on the way down and had a BEAUTIFUL flight home with 20-40 KNOT tailwinds. Ya' can't beat a day like that! :-)

    My 8 mo. old son did awesome too. He slept most of the flight.

    This old post with low fuel prices makes me sad...
