- The $100
Hamburger : A Guide to Pilots' Favorite Fly-In Restaurants by John F. Purner - The
$100 Hamburger provides firsthand pilot reports on 1,000+ restaurants at or very near
general aviation airports across the United States and in 15 foreign countries. Pilots tell of
their experiences and give their impressions of each eatery, and answer key questions of
location, food quality and type, service, ambiance, and price. A rating system of 1 to 5
hamburgers is used. Geographically indexed, and listed alphabetically within state or
country, The $100 Hamburger exists presently on the Internet, but rather inconveniently
for use in the cockpit, reference on the air strip, or toting in the flight bag. Book form
and web site will complement one another as the site can provide updates and promotions to
the book. 300 Pages. List Price: $19.95, Our Price: $15.96, You Save: $3.99 (20%)
