Speaking of worms, Kevin....

Here's a couple of ideas for improving the application:

1. A lookup table so you can find people -
eg all those in CA, OR and WA or by name or other data fields
2. Automatic links to airnav for the airport identifiers

You're going to be too busy working on this to start building you're Cozy.

Hindencozy... hmmm, definately a negative connotation. King Kozy was already taken. Big A$& Cozy just isn't polite. Cozy XL? XL5?

Better check my plans again... maybe I'm #1176.

The airnav links are in. For them to work, everyone will have to be careful to enter the id exactly as airnav lists it since I just tack it right on to a link. I noticed the Cozy Girrrls have an O instead of the zero that airnav uses. It doesn't appear to be case sensitive, though. Also, our Canuck friends don't seem to be listed in airnav.

Oh, and this was a really simple change. Making the site render faster is not, so don't expect any miracles.

Boy, did that map grow since yesterday!

What is the significance of the blue vs. green teardrops?

Looks to me like:
Blue = flying
Green = building

Yeah, when you first asked chapter, I thought my EAA chapter....forgetting that y'all Cozy guys live and die by the chapter number of the plans....go figure.

All the best,

Chris
on the Velocity Chapter that deals with finishing...micro (used as a verb), sand, repeat, repeat, repeat (from the Department of Redundancy Department). Heh, the classics still crack me up

I spotted that. Even zoomed in to see if there was a really small island there.

I see Jim Sower's working his way back from China and is now only 50 miles or so from his home in Crossville, TN.

I don't know about anyone else, but I find this canard map facinating. Must be a right brain thing.

Dito for me....
Just a thought, how hard would it be to put some stats out on how many total builder, as well as by type and status?

It's ok, but it'll get buried there. If we have direct links to Spruce and info on Ox, then this deserves an icon on the main page.
