Required Pilot Reading


Thanks to Peter Kelly (PK) who did a LOT of work creating the original WSC Pilot Information pages. Plus thanks to Tom Jue, Kevin Ash, Gen Shibayama, and again, Peter Kelly for many of the illustrations and photos used on these pages. If I missed someone who's work is here, let me know and I will add your name to the credits. ~Webmaster
