Hi.

This site is here because another one disappeared. For almost thirty years, Carney Aviation provided light airplanes at Bridgeport, Connecticut. When the business closed in 2008, it had a web site with some useful features.

There was a small Aviation Library and several hundred Links that I didn't want to lose, so they're here now. There are also some articles on various subjects, mostly about flying.

Destinations, too. You can search by location, or centered on the Bridgeport airport in Stratford, Connecticut. I've been told this airport is hard to spot. Here's a look at the approach from the Northeast.

Here's an abbreviated version of the old weight & balance calculators.
– and some weather charts: today's, short term and a full week's worth.

Carney Aviation closed suddenly in 2008, leaving many unanswered questions. The Carney story ran its course a long time ago, but it's still here if you want to read it.

You can read about some of the trips we've taken. They all used light airplanes.
