For instance, not many outside the local area know that you can land right on Copalis State Beach in Washington State or get into ghost towns and landlocked settlements in the western mountains. Who would have thought the Western-themed fly-in resort called the Flying W Ranch would be a short hop from Teterboro in New Jersey? For a wild adventure, it's hard to beat (not to mention find) a place like Tsuniah Lake Lodge in British Columbia. For the closest thing left to a Meigs Field experience, threatened Toronto City Centre Airport puts Canada's largest city a 150-yard ferry ride away. Steketee said Be A Pilot staffers plus the "research and spectacular photography" of Pilot Getaways magazine conspired to create the list.

The information is not set up as a travel guide or airport directory; rather, it offers insight into places that are just better to get to by air. If you know a place that fills the bill, Be A Pilot is also taking submissions to add to the Web site by e-mail or by mail at:
