Q2:   What other sources of aviation information are there on the net?

A:  Guenther Eichhorn maintains a very well-organized set of information
    on general aviation which is available on the web:
 	http://www.landings.com/aviation.html
    The information below has been extracted from this page for those who
    are not web-capable and would like ftp access to a few key items.

    The Federal Government maintains a fair amount of FAA information
    which may be obtained by ftp from:
        ftp://fwux.fedworld.gov/pub/faa/faa.htm
    These documents are in a number of different formats, including text,
    various versions of MS Word, Adobe Acrobat, several compressed archive
    files, and more.  The FARs (FAR_xx.DOC) are text files; the Practical
    Test Standards (PTS_xxx.n) are Word 6.0 for Windows.

    A list of major airports, including code letters and latitude and
    longitude, may be obtained by ftp from:
        ftp://aviation.jsc.nasa.gov/pub/fly/data/
    This site also contains a set of FAA data tapes, last updated 9/14/95.
    These data tapes are large and not particularly easy to process; if you
    are looking for data with which to do flight planning, please read Q13
    and Q10 below.
