Its that time of year again in North America: Summer is upon us and theres nothing we can do about itwithout a passport, even if we want- ed to. The good news is we no longer have to deal with freezing precipitation, cold, low clouds hugging a run- way for warmth or preheating our engines. More good news is that the number of reasons to hop in an air- plane and go somewhere will grow. Options will include small y-ins and pancake breakfasts to the large, name-brand events, and everything in between. There is other stuff going on with the change of seasons, which may or may not be good.
