I want to start doing some Aviation photography. I would like to upload pictures to Airliners.net. Right now, I own a camera that uses film, since parents think a digital camera uses up too many batteries. Is it possible to use my camera to take photos good enough to upload to Airliners.net? How do I make them good enough for Airliners.net? All answers would be appreciated.

If you take slide or negative-film, you need a good (film-)scanner. The price of a good scanner falls in the same range as a pretty decent digital camera (correct me if I'm wrong). So... It's up to you to choose.
(BTW, digital camera's batteries come with a charger...)

I don't know the details of different scanners, so its not really possible for me to comment on specific models. All I know, as a screener, is that most (not all, most) photographers who use flat-bed scanners to scan prints have problems meeting the standards here. That doesn't mean that the use of such equipment is not allowed, just be prepared for some work getting images up to our standards if you use such kit.
