I've been getting into the airport abbreviations lately. I am getting ready to take private pilot training.
Good luck! Don't worry about airport abbreviations. You'll be needing the book where you can look up all the zillions of general aviation airports around the country. My son flies a Cessna 177RG and is about to make his 4th 'cross country trip from Seattle to Ticonderoga, NY.
With ships like Genesis coming out, some day you may be able to land on a landing strip right on the plane, like an aircraft carrier!
