Congrats on the new plane and your pilot license. I've been flying twenty five years, lots of fun. Sold my last plane two years ago, a Comanche 250. Started with Cessnas, Beach Bonnaza. Great way to go on vacation. Have fun be safe.
I give you credit. You go fast in everything. Congrats
funny this came up. have always wanted to fly. always been fascinated with aviation. back in the day I remember my x kidding around "no, you can't have a plane!"
ran into an instructor through work just a week ago who gives lessons here locally.
we are looking at late march/early april.
does $165/hr sound right?
I may never own a plane, but I'm going to learn to fly one!
Good luck and be safe. I have many friends w/ small planes and no way will I fly with them. I'll take 1st class commercial or my dually w/ the boat behind it.
I am sure planes are wonderful.
I skipped from page 1 to here only to say you can't go slow in an aircraft[someone may have said it] but you can in a boat which is social thing more than anything else.
we didn't get too deep into it as we are 3-4 mos away and it was 4am at the hospital both working.
Cessna. I thought she said it was a 4 seater when I asked? Should have asked her more about the plane.
We had some off-handed conversation about maintenence requirements/schedules ect. She seemed very knowledgable and at-ease with the few things we did talk about.
Kind of shocked me as she is YOUNG like 25 young.
Says her father has been flying for 30 years so I take it she had an early introduction?
the rate sounded pretty reasonable to this novice as one thing I have understood is that they are as expensive to keep on the ground as they are to fly?
Plus all the requirements/maintenence and fuel?
