I thought this was pretty interesting. Those of you who enjoy flight, flying, or are pilots, would likely find this just as interesting as I did.
The US is quite possibly the only country in the world, where someone can hop into their personally owned aircraft, Piper Cub to Gulfstream, and fly anywhere in the country they wish. No government permission required. For the VFR guys, you don't even need to file a flight plan, or let anyone know where you're going. You should, it just lets rescue forces know where to start looking for you.
The turboprop and jet guys file flight plans, because it's easier to work in the ATC system that way. But no one cares where or why you are going somewhere.
