  1. What the hell is going on with this site? No mention of the recent mid-air, the crash at Reno, and more. Hasn't been updated in 2 days either.

    1. Reply for 1:34 PM - Shouldn't you be flying a plane of illegal aliens to Biden’s summer home, Pelosi, Schumer, Shiff, etc...

    2. As far as I know, this site is run by a volunteer(s), doesn’t have advertising, and isn’t an “official” publication of any agency or organization. It owes you and I absolutely nothing.

      Like most who visit here, I believe this website offers a valuable service to the aviation community and I greatly appreciate all the hard work and dedication of those responsible.

    3. One volunteer maintains "Kathryn's Report" - her name is Kathryn.

    4. And she works a 72-hour work week ... every week.

  2. Just be thankful that the site exists. The person who runs it probably works a 40 hour a week job and has a life outside of this site.

  3. Hey man...if you want your money back just let us know, and I will send you a refund...I'll even give you double your money back...ha ha ha. Stop complaining and be grateful that this person keeps this site going.
