I stopped totaling the year and started keeping tabs on my monthly 'burn rate'. Average this year is down from 2003, at just over 900/mo.

I need professional help.

I spent some bucks for parts and field equipments, but you know what bothers me alot?

It's not that I fly alot or have spent too much on fuel. It just bothers me because we pay(most of us) $15 to $20 per galon. You can go ahead and fill up your car with that money. I don't understand why it has to be this expensive.

Through the yrs.

Through the years I've started in 1998 to present.....give or take I spent roughly close to $12,000.

Number of heli's through the yrs. 10 & 5 planks along w/the crash cost and a whole lot more of crashes. Back then I didn't have a PC for the sim so I was just relying on training myself w/the help of a freind from the neighboring Islands and parts that I needed for the crash. Stubborn of me that I would never allow myself to buy 2nd hand heli's and thought it would be better if I bought a new one. Now to think about that decision.....I think that was stupid of me.
I spent about $2,000+ for 1 pallet of nitro from wildcat fuel shipped out to my area.
To a point my wife was on standby with the divorce papers and thats my story

This is not a wife friendly thread. For me I am lucky, I have only spent about 2K this year so far.

I got Seneca beat

I spent $120 million dollars and ordered 3 new apaches last year. Oh sorry that was tax payers dollars I spent. Oh well the prez said he expected to spend $629 billion dollars in the first 6 months of the war and I wanted to support him, so I guess I did.

Your right, and I enjoy spending your money, especially yours Seneca. So keep paying your taxes.
Thanks for firing me, I wanted to go fly anyway.
