PP-ASEL here, since last August. Been a dream for years, finally got it done. One of the greatest things I've ever done. Just wish I had more time to fly. Future should be good though, so long as the price of fuel is still within the grasp of a workin' fella. Instrument and floats are, I hope, in the future. Not sure about tailwheel. Multi is doubtful as I just don't see much use for it, unless I get lucky and get that Beech 18 on floats!

Went through the full UND program. CFIAIM. Decided to pursue a carreer in ditch digging after death of a close friend in a commuter crash and seeing what the economy was doing to pilot incomes. Have let instructor certificate lapse and haven't flown since about 93.

just about there, if I didn;t have to fish so much would've been done last spring, I have way to many hours to not have a cert yet, but I figure what the heck, whats the rush, learning is fun, and I would rather have more exp to start with than not enough, love the basic 172, but aiming for the floats. Cheers to the understanding KSTC Staff and E398ES the faithful one..so far.

Was wondering if any of you guys are pilots?

Not in real life... I fly with a virtual airline with MS Flight Sim (FSX). As real as it gets? No...but I enjoy it as a hobby. I know that doesn't count as a pilot, but I've always been an aviation buff. A good friend of mine flies an ERJ-145 for an airline out of Houston.

How about you, nwa1819? I'm guessing you are a pilot?

My first flight was in a four seater piloted by a friend's dad. It made me wonder why car's can't fly yet; it seemed like something we all should be able to do and enjoy. Lots of work and money back in reality land though. I guess flying isn't too hard but flying safely in a wide variety of conditions is.

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
