This Week's Question | Previous Week's Answers


Last week, we asked what sorts of aviation-related gifts our readers received during the holidays and were shocked to see that our option choices were so far off-base! (Either that, or you were very naughty pilots this year and just got lumps of coal in your stockings.) Just over 10% of those who answered our poll received some flying books and manuals, while only 6% of you found a new GPS under the tree. A surprising 76% of you said I didn't get any of that stuff.
