Cool...

I've had a couple of lessons over the years as well. I still haven't accepted the reality of how much money it takes to get and keep a pilot's license, but maybe there is hope yet...

The last time I went up, the instructor let me do everything as well, except he had to make slight corrections just prior to landing every time. Either I had a stiffer cross-wind than you did, or you're a better man than I am

It sure is a lot of fun. I am a pain in my own butt for not letting mself spend this money!

My heli spending has gone way down since I got a Honda 919 :-)

Bill, you forgot to mention you also need to keep current with biennial flight reviews. (And instrument proficiency checks etc for ratings beyond private).

But maintaining currency in the full size costs less than I spend on models!

Now you are ready to come out to the west coast and land on "The Carrier." Catalina Island. -Steve

My favorite runway! 3000', w/1500' sloping drop-offs at both ends.

Do they still serve buffalo burgers at the restaurant?
