Default Moving to Plano

Just found out today that my job is moving to Plano. Any intel on hangar availability at Aero Country or McKinney for a -10?

Thanks Andy - the move will be great for the family, but I'm bummed to have to leave my airpark home. Hopefully, I'll be able to find hangar space there!

There's several fly in neighborhoods around the Dallas area. I've landed at http://hiddenvalleyairpark.org/ a few times. Pretty neat place.

Thanks for the info on the facebook page Colin, I'll get on there today and see what I can find. As for where to live - we've just started looking. The office is located near the intersection of Dallas Tollway North and Sam Rayburn Tollway.

Copy that. Having lived in Los Angeles for a while, commuting traffic is definitely something I want to avoid...

There must really be something to this Texas thing - so many people say that. Come to think of it, I've never heard anyone here say anything similar about Illinois...
