Why Membership?



Passwords are mailed out shortly after each member joins CFO. An effort is made to use an easy to remember password, so please make an effort to remember it or jot it down by your computer.

Trouble with your password?

If you are using Internet Explorer and your browser did not offer you the opportunity to enter an account name and password, we have help for you on this page.

The most common problem with passwords is forgetting to use the correct account name. You need the account and the password for the system to work.

The account is not your name, and it is not your membership number, it is usually a simple word. For instance the account may be 'fly' and the password may be 'safe'. We try to keep them simple.

Don't use the quotes, and please use all lower case.

Forgot your password?

If you are a member and happen to forget your password, please go to this page to find it or have a new one sent. It's automated so it will respond quickly. After all, you're waiting to get in!

Password Policy

The Member's section is protected by passwords for a number of reasons:

  • Protection of email addresses. In today's connected world, the email address is unfortunately following one trend of the paper mail: Junk mail.

    Most junk mail, or spam, is sent to huge lists of email address that are prized not for being well targeted, but rather for simply being valid. And files like our digest archives and technical input pages offer prime fishing grounds for such people. This has been an area of concern for many of our members over time.

    The membership password keeps those programs from scanning our files, and protects our privacy. No member's email address will ever appear outside the membership firewall. This is the primary reason for password protection of the site.

  • Privacy Although we welcome anyone with an interest in the Cardinal, we may not want to have our words and actions judged by our neighbors, the Feds or the mechanic we don't really like down the street. Do you want your name to pop up in a web search of 'aircraft AND Radio Shack'? :-)

    Although this is not a big concern on the web as yet, it's just possible that we're ahead of our time!

  • Fairness. A lot of people contribute time and effort to our various projects, all oriented at keeping the Cessna Cardinal in the air, preferably with you in them doing fun things! Although our actions benefit the fleet as a whole, it seems only fair that those who get the most benefit also help foot the bill.

We hope you agree, and we welcome you to join us in our site, digest and activities. If you have questions or comments, please please drop a note to the Webmaster, Keith Peterson

We have hopes of creating an improved password system in the future, perhaps one with settable cookies to avoid passwords altogether. If you are an expert in this area please let us know.
