Every once in a while you run across a resource that helps you along and keeps you going. A good friend of mine got his bachelors degree a while back. One of his senior projects was to develop a web site. As he is a private pilot he decided to make his website about everything flight. His site has every thing from regulations to what to expect on your final check ride with the FAA. He's still developing it but it's really cool and makes the information you need to know very easy to access in one spot. Here's his site if you want to check it out.
