We can all relate to this...
Here is a short, but humorous video done by Paul Bertorelli, of AVWeb. It's about flying the traffic pattern at non-towered airports. It's worth watching and his unique style of presentation will give you a chuckle.
The airport is located within the city of Rio Vista, Ca. in the heart of the Delta. We are one of the thousands of the general aviation airports in the US. Our airport identifier is: O88, referred to as Oscar-88. We are a busy airport, we have flight training 7 days a week, aircraft repair, maintenance, and aircraft storage.

Maybe you thought it would be great to be an airline pilot, but did you stop there because you thought that it's just too difficult to do. Well, we're here to show that It's much more possible than you think! You can do this right here in Rio Vista. Watch Here to see how you can get started
