Friendly Chicago Pilots

chi_mf.jpgI recently moved to Chicago to Chicago. As a pilot I was sad that I was moving to Chicago too late to take advantage of the great Meigs Field that was closed over a year ago by Mayor Daley. You can read all about Meigs Field and efforts to re-open Meigs at I was curious what the good general aviation airports in Chicago would be and whether there were preferred Fixed Based Operators to rent from.

I received some great feedback from some of my readers via posts and e-mails. I have also received several offers to go flying with some chicago based pilots. I have consistently said that there is a neat bond between pilots and in relocating to Chicago I have experienced that phenomenon once again with the generous offers from Chicago Pilots.

Between unpacking from the move and a busy first week at the new job I have not been able to go flying yet but look forward to getting up in the air soon. Thanks to everyone that sent in some suggestions!

I also really hope you get up in the friendly skies very soon!
