Vesta located the following tidbit - A company in the States starts placing E-mail "phone" booths in airports and places, ..your friendly computer at your service everywhere. ~-=o0o=-~ . Interline stuff. The most important formality on entering the U.S. is giving proof of citizenship. Typically, U.S. officials have been willing to accept anything from a driver's license, birth certificate or even a Canadian Tire credit card.

Every Canadian should carry a valid Canadian passport for all trips outside Canada.

Flying by wire puts a man and a dog in the cockpit of an aircraft. The dog is there to bite if the man if he so much as tries to touch the controls; the pilots one remaining job is to feed the dog. Instructions to a student pilot - Pull joystick back - homes get smaller; push the joystick forward - homes get bigger. ~-=o0o=-~ .
