Adventures of an Aviatrix, in which a pilot travels the skies and the treacherous career path of Canadian commercial aviation, gaining knowledge and experience without losing her step, her licence, or her sense of humour.

Reader Scott sent me this photo of the pilot's lounge at the airstrip by the Wright Brothers Memorial in North Carolina. How do you open the door? There's often a hint to the code. Sometimes it's the local VOR or UNICOM frequency, but I usually leave the charts in the airplane so have to go back to look such things up. The emergency frequency or "alternate emergency frequency" works a lot of places, but this is a different solution. Admittedly it's not very secure, but the same can be said of many locks.
