Liberty University took delivery of this milestone aircraft, a Cessna Skyhawk, along with two other Cessna Skyhawks, adding to its growing flight training fleet.

Occasionally the governing body of a small town starts to think it can take the place of the FAA in regulating where aircraft can operate in the national airspace. Such is the case in Chesapeake City, Maryland, where an ordinance has been proposed that would prevent "fixed wing or rotary aircraft, whether manned or unmanned" to be "permitte
