  • Airline Pilot Central – This is a great place to find information about all things “airline pilot” including salary and benefits, news, forums, etc.
  • Airliners – This website is an absolutely amazing repository of aviation photography. Trust me, you can easily get sucked in for hours.
  • AOPA – Home of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, the largest and most influential aviation association in the world.
  • Boarding Area – Great site that contains quite a few outstanding aviation blogs.
  • Cranky Flier – Blog of airline enthusiast Brett Snyder. Good insights into the crazy world of airlines.
  • Flight Aware – From this website, you can track specific flights in real time for airlines and private planes alike.
  • Hotwire – By far my favorite website for renting hotels and rental cars. Their star system has yet to let me down.
  • Kayak – Instead of searching multiple travel websites to purchase tickets, Kayak searches all of them for you and lists the results in one pladce. Very slick.
  • Open Table – Oustanding way to search for new restaurants and to make reservations online.
