Flying the Weather Map (General Aviation Reading series)
Flying the Weather Map (General Aviation Reading series)
Written for pilots who want to improve their flight weather forecasting skills, this manual provides an in-depth discussion of the basic theory and logic of aviation weathercasting and an analysis of 46 instrument flight rules (IFR) cross-country flights made in a light airplane in all seasons. Each flight episode is illustrated with pre-takeoff upper-level and surface weather maps and a small-scale chart, which clearly traces the progress of the flight and the actual in-flight weather conditions.

Map of Egypt
Map of Egypt
In 1984, I travelled in Egypt for a month. My travel companion was Lucie, the mother of my children. Looking back at what we did and, especially, at how we did it, this was no ordinary trip. For one thing, more than half of our touring was by self-driven rented car. Many of our friends here in Canada, including some who are Egyptian, thought that we were crazy to even think of driving ourselves around in Egypt. But in retrospect, it was a good decision because we would not have experienced Egypt quite the way we did if we had gone on a package tour like most people do when they visit Egypt. I sometimes think back about this adventure and ask myself if I would do it again. Probably not, at least not at this time in my life; but in my late thirties as I was then, there was nothing too risky, too difficult, or too unpredictable for me. And the fact that Lucie spoke a little bit of Arabic also helped us out of tricky situations more than once. This map, which was "hand-made" just after the trip and several years before I even thought of getting a computer, shows our complex and ambitious itinerary. Here is a summary of what we did (follow the red arrows on the map and see the legend in the upper left hand corner): •We arrived in Cairo on September 16, 1984 on a flight from Rome; visited Cairo for a few days (but not Giza just yet); •Took an overnight train to Luxor; visited the town, the palaces and the valleys of the Kings and Queens; •Took a four-day cruise on the Nile from Luxor to Aswan; visited Aswan; •We had planned to fly to Abu Simbel but on that day the airplane was out of order; we couldn't reschedule due to our tight program; so, we had to cancel Abu Simbel; •Flew back to Cairo; picked-up our rental car at the airport and headed for Giza; visited around the Pyramids; •Drove to El Faiyum; then drove to Alexandria via the desert road; visited a monastery in Natrun and the city of Alexandria; •Drove to El-Alamein for a day trip; visited the military cemeteries and war memorials; •Drove across the delta to Ismailia and then along the Suez Canal to Suez; •Drove along the Red Sea to Hurghada; •Drove across the Eastern Desert back to the Nile Valley at Qena; drove along the Nile to Asyut; •Drove to Kharga Oases; •Two-day drive back to Cairo; departed Cairo on October 15, 1984; returned to Canada via Rome. I took some notes on the back of an envelope (don't forget, this was pre-laptop days!) and here is essentially what I wrote: Weather: in September and October we found the temperature quite comfortable in Cairo and Alexandria and quite hot (uncomfortable) in Luxor and Aswan. Kharga and Hurghada were surprisingly comfortable. Driving in a non-air conditioned car was not too bad. Food: Food in Egypt is plain, not particularly "interesting" especially in small towns, but it is edible everywhere and generally better than we expected. Food on the Nile Cruise and at the Hurghada Sheraton as well as in the better hotels (like at the Meridien in Cairo) was superb. We were never sick from anything we ate. Accommodation: We had pre-booked and prepaid all our hotels through a travel agency in Ottawa. Accommodation was adequate everywhere, our vouchers were always honoured, and we had no complains about the service at the hotels nor about the travel agency that looked after us in Egypt. Driving: Driving conditions are hazardous in populated areas because of pedestrians, animals and other obstacles on the roads. To this day I tell people that if they can drive in Cairo, they can drive anywhere in the world. Out in the country, roads are OK but not great. Road signs and directions are inadequate, confusing, often non-existent, or illegible, especially when written in Arabic only. Having said that, I found that, overall, driving in Egypt is not nearly as difficult as people pretend. We drove a total of 3,331 km. Photography: Panoramic scenes are generally deceiving because the country is quite flat and there is a constant haze everywhere hanging over the landscape making "nice views" rather rare. Having said that, one can still do "interesting" photography in Egypt; just don't expect clear, unlimited visibility, at least not in September and October. Most scenic road/waterway stretches: Edfu to Aswan on the Nile; Safaga to Qena (across the Eastern Desert); road to Kharga Oases (across the Western Desert); along the Suez Canal. Most disappointing road stretches: Crossing the Nile Delta; some stretches of coastal roads (e.g. along the Red Sea, the Mediterranean) were disappointing as they ran too far from the coast to be scenic. Most scenic town: Aswan; Most unappealing town: Suez; Most enjoyable experiences: 1. The Nile cruise (Luxor to Aswan); 2. Our stay at Hurghada; 3. The friendliness and helpfulness of ordinary Egyptians. Least enjoyable experiences: Filth in the b

Each seat on Virgin America now includes a screen and keyboard with a special in-flight entertainment system that includes movies, TV, a live route map, seat-to-seat chat, etc. They really missed some strong opportunities for in-flight social networking and games but it's a promising start. This is a view of the live routemap.
