Ok, after eaa.org and Oshkosh365.org what are your favorite aviation related websites?

Here are mine:

1.  Aero-news.net:  General aviation news.

2.  Cartercopters.com:  Follow the devolopment of a high tech gyroplane.

3.  Avweb.com:  Aviation news.

Here are some plugs for my favorites (mine get's the number one spot, of coursebiggrin)

1.  Taildraggers, Inc. - www.taildraggersinc.com - Almost Daily "Aerotainment"

2.  I'll second www.aero-news.net

3.  Ohio Bush Planes - www.ohiobushplanes.com - Greg Swingle makes some of the coolest videos featuring a Rans S-7S and his buddies flying into and out of some really cool spots in Ohio and elsewhere.  You gotta watch the videos!

4.  Biplane Forum - www.biplaneforum.com - A discussion forum about homebuilt and other biplanes.  Very informative

5.  Van's Airforce - www.vansairforce.net - Doug Reeve's VAF forums.

6.  Barnstormers - www.barnstormers.com - Aviation Classifieds (although the site's not as good as it used to be, in my opinion)

 

I'll add more later if I can remember them.

Luft46.com - if, like me, you are a fan of obscure German WWII designs.

Had never seen Luft46 before thanks for that one.

 

For anyone interested in building WWI aircraft the replica aircraft forum on The Aerodrome  http://www.theaerodrome.com/forum/replica-aircraft/  is a place of great joy and beauty

 

Global Plane Search is a good resource, they aggregate "aircraft for sale" ads from all over the internet - - www.globalplanesearch.com


Must also plug Aerofiles, a historical resource from which I have benefitted enormously over the years http://www.aerofiles.com/

Read Budd Davisson's insightful airplane reports at www.airbum.com

Sometimes things a get a bit political in the newsletters from www.leebottom.com. Entertaining and eyeopening. All airplanes and most pilots are welcome at their fly-in.

I read www.aero-news.net daily but the "You heard it here first!" stuff gets old at times.

http://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/forums/ is where I spend most of my aeronautical browsing. If you are designing or building, this site probably has the most information on the internet.

I created a site based on the premise that pilots add fun stuff to do around their home airport and an instant network of fun places and activities is created.  You can check it out at weekendwaypoints.com.   We would put all the data in ourselves but it is impossible to visit every airport in the US, although we would love to try.  You can add places and events to the site by simply clicking the add waypoint or add event button.  We have discovered all sorts of fun that is transportation free i.e. the businesses will pick you up or you can use a courtesy car.  The activities include kayaking, fishing charters, skydiving, golf, paintball, hunting charters, skiing etc.  We have another top secret all aviation site coming soon.
