Welcome to MyFlyingStuff (.com)!
You may remember the days when you could go to the local Sunday paper classifieds, find the aviation heading and see what’s for sale, club memberships available, flight training classes etc.? Hopefully I can re-create that “local” feel with an online version for the GA Flying Community and expand in the future. There are Aviation Forums for discussion, “FREE” Classifieds & Business Listings, Links I have found useful and helpful aviation information for the student and current pilot alike.
Help get the website “off the ground” by registering (simply a username & email), logging in and posting an adventure in the forum, or an item for sale or wanted. Thanks –>

Bowker said he is seldom believed when he tells people he is a jetpack test pilot. “Umm, normally along the lines of bull (bleep) haha,” Bowker said.
The company aims to sell a jetpack to first responders and specialist commercial users in defence and civil defence while it continues to develop a lighter recreational version. “We have over 10,000 people who have actually enquired as to where they might be able to purchase these in the future,” said Martin Aircraft Company CEO Peter Coker.
For the inventor, Glenn Martin, it has been a 30-year labour of love to perfect his concept. “This is prototype 9… With a price tag of around $150,000, the company says they expect to have their first commercial jetpack on the market for sale next year.

How about the Bathtub Plane?!?!
It’s a precise replica of a vintage airplane, a 1924 super-light “Dormoy Bathtub.” Almost six decades ago, Boeing retiree Kusmirek, 84, hatched the dream of recreating this particular piece of aviation history — and flying it. (click image for article)
