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
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!

We hope you agree, and we welcome you to join us in our site, digest

- 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
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 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.
