I've met people who worked at big airplane companies, but to be honest, I've never seen much on open sourced flight information. Does anyone get the opportunity to hack on that stuff? It always seems to be interesting rich people. In the ultimate MFA senior thesis in college, a rich classmate bought an entire plane for a sculpture, and what can I say, that stuff looks pretty cool.

I know that the crazy hippies in the Cal Sailing Club had attempted to create a low cost, cooperative non profit flying club version so that low income folks like us could fly planes ("Planes aren't just for rich people"), but there's something about the Bay Area topography that makes this sort of expensive. I don't know the details - something about tight flight paths in the mountains, and one of the local tech billionaires pissed people off so much flying his jet loudly in the south bay that private flights are banned in Silicon Valley. But hey! It's always good to know.
