I am, I don't think anyone knows I'm on here, I'm not ashamed, I just don't let everyone know my interests. I always turn my laptop toward the wall when I'm on A.net, I actually do most of the time anyway, I'm just a very private person.

Well..most of my friends make fun of me..say I'm crazy to actually pay $25 to sign up for an aviation website. I just ignore them. But I wouldn't say I'm a closet a.nutter, all my friends/family know my hobby Big grin

well...everyone knows I know a lot about planes and airlines and all that (compared to a lay person), but I don't like to let people know how far my obsession goes.

I think this really applies to all the high schoolers and college students here. As for telling people, I'm a lot like SLC1. I don't really care about telling people about it, but I don't go out of my way to tell people about my hobby. Most of my close friends know about it, and a few have even gone out to EWR with me. I am very wary of going on a.net at school, though. As for family, no one in my family likes or even knows anything about aviation, and they really don't understand it. They really don't care, though, and let me do my thing, as long as it doesn't interfere with school.

I don't promote the fact that I am an aviation enthusiast as I get made fun of it by the people who do know that I am obsessed with it.

I only speak about it when i am spoken to something related----otherwise especially in India people think you a crazy if u like aircrafts, let alone paying 25$ for it---hopefully things will change with the upcoming boom in Indian civil aviation

Damn, I only figured out now that we were talking about aviation. I thought SLC1 was gay and everyone else was kidding due to the post not being specific about aviation.

My whole family knows I'm into this stuff, and most of my friends know that I know a lot about aviation. When they heard I paid $900 for a camera, they thought I was crazy. I've told one of my friends from school about A.net though, and only because he said he's interested in aviation too. But yeah, I'd say I'm a "closet A.netter."

No Bravo7E7, I'm not gay (not that there's anything wrong with that), and I throw around $25 perhaps too much, I should have less money or start working again when the only thing I spent money on was gas (reluctantly). And I do bring it up if mentioned by somebody else, but that's the only time. I even try to avoid appearing like I know TOO much about aviation.

I don't tell people, but they are free to find out and I will explain it to them without shame. This helps because most of the people where I am look at A.NET regularly but are not actually members.

When I was in school/college my family and friends used to think I was crazy to like planes. They used to laugh at me. But now that I'm doing well, all the jokes have stopped. I even got my IT freak cousin interested in aviation (he now works for an airline).

Nobody knows that I like aviation as it's something I enjoy to do on my own time. It's an escape if you will. I do have a bumper sticker on my car and sometimes people ask what it's for...I tell them it's about aviation and change the subject, unless they know what they are talking about.

Same here. Almost all of my friends and family know that I'm the one to go to if they have a question about airlines, airports or travel in general, but I try not to let them know just how into depth I can go.

Obsessed is a rough word. I like "very, very interested" instead.

$25 for an aviation website?? No.. I paid $25 to beat up Liberals here on the non-av site!!

The aviation pictures, however, are free!
