    Default Any Pilots Among Members?

    Just wondering. Every now and then I see a reference to aviation in the posts. I've been flying for about 15 years just for fun, not work. I keep a working mans Cessna at a local airport.

    When we talk about costs I have an easy formula: kubota dollars are 3x regular dollars, Cessna dollars are 10x regular dollars. I also log a lot more Kubota hours than Cessna hours.

    Yep. I'm a pilot. Used to have my Cessna 140A. Sold it when I wasn't flying it as much, due to not enough time. Been looking at an RV-6, taildragger version.

    Used to fly a flex-wing ultralight. hanger fees almost doubled and after a year of hardly flying I folded it up and brought it home. I miss it at times.

    I did hang gliding too, when I was younger!

    I also was started in Helicopter training ...that was a blast but again the $$$$$ was insane.


    My buddy is about 1/2 way thru building an RV8 tail drager himself.....hes so anal it will be a safe plane when finished. If i was to do it i'd have 20 or so parts left over......

    That's funny Rusty.

    I like your signature block, and it gives me an idea. The way things are going in this country, with me coming from Polish (immigrant) ancestry, maybe the city or state will pay for my hangar rent and aviation fuel. Hmmm, why not gimme something?

    Not current now but most of my log time in Arrow and Warrior. Some in Grumman Cheetah. I'd like to get current, but not likely with retirement coming up.
