Ain’t she purdy?

I finally took the plunge since my last post. I bought a plane, and leased it back to the same flying club I’ve been a part of for the last couple of years. It’s certainly been an a
dventure, and I will post a few things I’ve learned as I go!

No new planes to get qualified on yet, but I flew an Enstrom 280FX! Wow, what a different feeling of flight that thing provided. In the pattern I was great, close to the ground was not so great. Checked it off the list though!

Here are my stats thus far:

  • 143.6 total hours (+11.5)
  • 391 Takeoffs/Landings (+33)
  • 0.5 rotorcraft (+0.5)
  • 6.7 night (+0.6)
  • 3.1 Simulated Instrument
  • 0.2 Flight Simulator
  • 67.7 Cross Country (+7.8)
  • 38.5 Dual Received (+1.6)
  • 113.2 Pilot in Command (+9.9)

Will see you guys in the sky soon!

Look out for that WX!

It’s been an adventure! I’m now with a new flying club that has shiny planes that are very well maintained, including a few with G1000 setups.

No new planes to get qualified on yet, but the flying club is getting a Piper Saratoga with a fixed gear, so no complex rating required! I may give that one a go for some family trips. Lots of usable load, and hopefully way more comfortable than the fake backseat of the Cherokee PA-28-235 I was flying…

Anyway, here are my stats thus far:

  • 132.1 total hours
  • 358 Takeoffs/Landings
  • 6.1 night
  • 3.1 Simulated Instrument
  • 0.2 Flight Simulator
  • 59.9 Cross country
  • 36.9 Dual
  • 103.3 Pilot in Command

Will see you guys in the sky soon!
