Private Pilot Resources - Aviation Blog

I obtained my private pilot license in 2006. This site is dedicated to capturing little gems of knowlege I collected during training. Periodically I add items I find during research so that others might benefit from them. Please review the disclaimer at the bottom of this page.

In 1999 a friend invited me to go flying and I was hooked. I live in the Bay Area about an hour south of San Francisco and fly out of Reid Hillview (KRHV). Please do get in touch and lets go fly!!

Bay Area Weather

On the 29th we're planning a quick hop up to Half Moon Bay. It's real close so one would think no problem. Weather is nice here, so it will be the same over there. Not so fast. Half Moon Bay is at the coast and during summer you can bet that it's fogged in at some time during the day. The Bay Area in fact is an accumulation of many different micro climates with huge temperature wind and visibility changes with a 70 mile radius. Lucky for pilots, web cams have sprung up like wildfire. Just search the Internet for keywords webcam. One reason I blog this site below is because I like to have it available to check from the FBO just prior to my flight.
