How many of you guy have your private pilot license or helicopter license? I finished mine private pilots license in August and just love it! It's so relaxing to go up and just get away.

SEL, SES, tail dragger sign off, and was working on my glider rating when I got hit with some health issues. I can not pass a 3rd class medical, and because of that, I won't self-certify for the sportsman rating or continue with glider training.

Aircraft flown as PIC:

Cessna 140, 150, 152, 152 Acrobat, 172, 182
Piper J3 Cub, Super Cub (clipped wing)
Lake 250 amphibian
Boeing Kaydet (otherwise known as a Stearman biplane

And while I greatly miss flying, the ~ 1,000 hours in my log books is better than always wanting to fly but never having the opportunity to do so.

PP-ASEL in '98 I believe it was. I came down with a health issue a couple years after that right at the tail end of working on an instrument rating and let my class III lapse (at about age 35).

I've recovered from that condition tho and have flown under the Sport Pilot rule ever since. In fact, if the weather is good, I plan to fly my plank this weekend, on its last two days in annual...

Helis are out of reach legally and financially, tho, so I'm flying my r/c helis FPV nowadays. Until FAA finally shuts me down that is...

Working on Private
Roughly 45 hours down... Long cross-country done. Night flying in the USA was an eye-opener. Compared to the wide-open spaces I normally fly, the North-Perry area between Miami and Ft-Lauderdale seemed extremely congested and complex airspace-wise.

Learning to fly reminds me of college. Classes are only interesting up to a certain point. And then they seem to become unduly complex.

I'll get there someday, 'though

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