Press Release Summary: Have you ever dreamed about what it would be like to fly an
airplane? A newly-launched aviation website gives you all the thrills of sitting
right in the pilot\'s seat... without ever leaving your living room.

Press Release Body: (Ronkonkoma, NY) August 5th, 2008 -,
an aeronautical resource site for existing and student pilots, announced the
official launch of its website today. One of the most unique features of the site
is that it gives first-hand accounts of student pilots, represented as a daily
pilot\'s journal, during every step of their flight training.

Founder and webmaster, Danny McAleese, was proud of what the site had to offer.
\"Our site promotes aviation interest to new students, as well as already licensed
pilots\", McAleese said. \"It contains tons of useful information in the form of
aviation articles, air terms glossary, and flight planning tools for all levels of
pilots. Best of all, it\'s free - so check it out!\"

Learning to fly still remains high on the fantasy list of \'things to do\' for many
people. Rising costs and lack of free time hinder a lot of would-be-pilots.
Visitors to Student Flying Club however, can read day-by-day accounts of an actual
flight training program, following along from the very first lesson all the way to
the FAA pilot\'s exam or checkride. For would-be students hesitant about learning to
fly simply because of a lack of solid information, this is an invaluable asset.

\"It gives the complete scope of a flight training program, from beginning to end\",
McAleese continues, \"It\'s illustrated with actual photos too. Even if you have no
aviation experience at all, by the time you finish reading the pilot\'s journal
you\'ll be an expert in what to expect. I wish something like this was around when I
was learning to fly\".

In addition to the journal, Student Flying Club is packed full of other important
aviation tools and resources. One of them is a fully-functional emulator of an E6B
flight calculator. Accessed from the flight planning section of the website, the
emulator can perform all of the primary functions of a mechanical E6-B. Speed
calculations, magnetic variation, crosswind direction, density, pressure, and
temperature conversions can all be made with the simple push of a button. The
distance and heading between major airports can also be figured out using an online
airport distance calculator.

Included in the site are many links to important aviation resources within AOPA, the
FAA, and the National Weather Service. Visitors can call up satellite and radar
maps to determine weather conditions before embarking upon a flight. \"I wanted
pilots to be able to do flight planning right from the website\", McAleese explained.
\"We added aviation navigation tools and links to the airport facility directory as
well as online aeronautical sectional charts for VFR routes\".

Additionally, the website publishes articles on general aviation and flying. An
entire section dedicated to articles exists for those wishing to learn about flying
as well as for the student pilot looking for help with certain areas of training.
There is also an air terms glossary to help laymen get past all the complicated
aviation jargon, translating aeronautical terminology and common air traffic
control communications into simple English. For the lighthearted there\'s even a
rookie pilot\'s lounge containing a large collection of flying humor, pilot quotes,
and pages of funny aviation photos. Student Flying Club also accepts
viewer-submitted aviation photos, which if exceptional, may be included on the site.

Also featuring an aviation resources page full of links to flight schools and places
to buy quality pilot\'s gear, Student Flying Club is the all-around best place to be
introduced to the world of general aviation and flying. For more information, visit
