I've been reading quite a while and find a few members who are okay with knowing "that" an airplane works as opposed to "how", treating the technicalities as a passing subject. I guess I cannot blame those with virtually no interest at what could be and only pay attention to what is.

Personally, it blows my mind. But then I know not everyone, or anyone else, is here like I am, so what do you do that made you feel at home here?

Didn't have a topic name before

I'm not sure what you are trying to get at in your post, but I know that I was drawn to this site since I'm interested in commercial aviation as a whole. I think I've become a bigger contributer since I started working as an engineer at an aerospace company. I spend all day at work working on parts for airplanes, and it is fun to talk about them. I also like reading trip reports. There is something special about a high quality flight. I try to contribue plenty of trip reports myself.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Just like Rose Flyer, I´m a big fan of commercial aviation since I was a kid. I grew up watching private planes taking off and landing all day. I thought I was some kind of strange guy until Internet was invented... and this website was created. I found that I´m not alone, and I´ve learned many many things with you guys since I´m here (now more than 5 years ago), reading your posts and cultivating my hobby like I never dreamed I could ever do!!!

We all have a passion for commercial aviation, its almost like having an affair with aeroplanes!! One learns something new everyday from the forums, as each individual has their own expertise to contribute. Awesome reading the forums+trip reports.

I grew up in the RAF, so was always based with my parents at RAF Stations with runways. I was used to Wessex Helos, Andovers, Chipmuks, Vulcans, fighter trainers, etc etc etc when i was growing up. A visit to Australia in 87 must of made me get into it alot more.

Now i work in the industrie, i love the fact i know what most people are talking about now. Its funny as i learn a bit more here then i do at work lol. Also the pics. AMAZING

while i like most aspects of aviation, actual airplanes is what interests me. I could go to an airport and watch planes for hours. I guess im more into the technical aspects of planes, not as much into the actual "airlines" themselves.
