KimberlyI've just gotten word that our casual habit here of mentioning that seats are available on private planes flying between North Eleuthera and the states may be illegal, and against FAA rules. Given that we've always been so laidback about these announcements, whether in person or on the board, can someone from the aviation community comment one way or the other? I personally find the listings to be helpful, but don't want the generous pilots -- or the messageboard -- to get into trouble with the authorities. Any suggestions?

Thanks ...

NorinWe have used both Leair and Flamingo Charters from NAS to ELU successfully.
Pick depending on # of people. It is usually cost effective to charter if you have 4 or more people.
Southern Air has scheduled flights.
Good luck.

smittyPay no attention to Kimberly.Besides being terrified at the thought of serious libation, her taste buds are horribly mutilated from a lifetime of those cute little drinks stuffed with fruit, tiny umbrellas, palm fronds and other giggely little things.Though she's one of the greatest gals I know, alas, no one's perfect.How did you know about my thermos?Gray Goose, you say? Worse than an all night ennema. Ken

MaddieYou and Mr. Webster may be right. My parents, who taught me how to fish, are both professional vodka drinkers.

smittyJust a moment while I look up "vicariously".Ah, just as I thought."A state of euphoria brought about by ingesting large amounts of low quality, Rum, etc. easily remedied with the substitution of a superior brand such as Vodka.See Ken Smith for details". Yep, right out of Webster's, so help me.I'm sure if you started treatment immediately, by March you'd be ready to take on the biggest and baddest Bonefish.
