Usenet discussion groups

Usenet discussion groups can be read and posted to using a news reader such as Netscape or Outlook Express. They can also be accessed through Google's news gateway. If you are new to the world of usenet, please read up on it a bit before posting. The Usenet Newbie Project is a good starting place.

  • rec.aviation.student - r.a.s is a fairly high traffic group where students ask questions and share experiences (lots of first solo posts). A solid contingent of knowledgeable regulars also hang around and give out answers and lots of good advice.
  • rec.aviation.pilot - A really high traffic group with a somewhat lower signal to noise ration than r.a.s. Still you might find some of the discussions (and flamewars) interesting.
