Hello guys!

Here is a photo my brother Vitaly Kudryn shot of me at the wheel:

http://www.planepictures.net/netshow.cgi?1039165159:S95

This was his first time using my F5 for aviation photography, I didn't change the settings for him and it was left at my previous setting I dialed in when I was shooting some B&W photos for my classes, so a lot of PS had to be used, the settings were F11 @ 500th.  Sad

Thought I would share it with you guys, btw, if anybody wants to rent a plane really cheap, go to Martin Field!  Smile

How much is cheap? Here at Montgomery Airpark I'm paying $90 per hour on C-172.

Hello Rafal!

The C150 was $31 + fuel an hour (about $40)

and C182 is $59 + fuel, (about $70)

I pay at Merill Field in Anchorage:

C152: $67
C172P: $84
C172R: $102.

Hope that gives you an idea!

And my check out took only 20 minutues, 2 steep turns, 1 stall (Power off) and 1 touch and go, the last was full stop landing!

Thats not bad, not bad at all. I usually fly over my house, then back to the airport for 2 touch and goes and third one is full stop landing. But right now I am not allowed to go within 10 miles of any airport  Sad My girlfriend would kill me.

Yes, the prices in the US are pretty cheap to compare to UK and Aussie prices! Especially at that little place were I rented that plane, 10 nm from there is ALW, and its $20 more an hour there.

I might have to go down there my instrument rating and so on....

BTW, if any others have pics of them at the controls on a.net, feel free to post them.

JHopper: were you at, or did you set the parking brake and junped out to take the pic?  Big grin

I think we have it even cheaper here at Boundary Bay (CZBB) - $79CDN for a 152, and $89CDN for a C172, and that includes rental/fuel, etc.

I'm more curious about the bigger stuff... the Piper Seneca I rent is $217CDN per hour including rental/fuel. It's a PA34-200.

Joe, you got a good point! Those prices hurt!

Steve, actually I was shooting for those 2 lines, the touch down zone, and I rented that plane for 3 hours, had to give lots of rides to my buddies, so I counted around 30 landings in 3 hours, haven't done that many in one time in my entire training. The very first landing (on my check out) was the only landing on all three at once (no bounce) (that 150 sits a bit higher than normal ones, but all the other landings were greasers. BTW, how many hours you have? I am just under 100.

No gas, hey but how much does it cost you to get towed up? Or does your wife hook up the glider behind the SUV and release you at the end of the runway and off you go?  Big grin

hey Dimitry:

No wife, traded the B**ch in on flying time, but I do have a SUV to get me out of farmers fields when the convection stops and I don't make it home. Thankfully that has only happened 3 times in the last 10 years. Nothing gets the adrenaline pumping like a deadstick into an unknown farmers field. But come to think of it.... all my landings are deadstick. What's a go around?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Seriously. Officially logged about 100 hours power (C150, C172, Piper Warrior), 400-500 hours glider (many types +CFIG), 25 hours hot-air balloon (mostly Raven), and 2 hours helicopter (Hughes 500C). Felt the urge to mate with a hummingbird. Big grin

Also unofficially time in Dash-8, Antanov AN-2, DC-3, Beech 58, Twin Aztec, etc. +++ It's simply amazing how much time you can beg or swap photos for. Just don't try logging it if the other pilot doesn't have an instructors rating and you're not type rated.

By the way. A glider tow is $20.oo CAN and as I fly out of a club, there is a one-hour time limit on weekends, and no limit (subject to availability) on weekdays. Aircraft rental charges after tow are .25 to .45 cents per minute for the aircraft. The tow is to a standard 2000 feet AGL and from there mother nature provides the rest of my climbs. What you power guys call turbulence I call HEAVEN. Ever passed a glider at 9,000 feet cruising along at 100 knots? I've had some funny exchanges with controllers when running cloud streets at that height and speed. They don't want to believe that I have no motor. Oh well.

You really should give soaring a try. For sure it will make you a better pilot in the long run. And it gives you a whole new perspective on meterology and what the air is doing around you. If the wind is blowing right, do you get any mountain wave in Alaska?

There are tons of gliders and ultralights that fly out of there on nice days, and its right next to the mountains, and let me tell you, they just circle and circle untill you can barely make them out, and its mostly 14 year olds! I was once holding short of the RWY when a kid came screaming in, landed short of the runway and swerved off into the grass, how do you guys get that one strait, you only get one shot at the RWY, usually? And yes, we do get mountain wave here, sometimes makes flying impossible!

Never have run out of fuel yet, and I hope I don't get to. But, we do have plenty of fields in our area.

I know they have the ultralight base up there, they converted one of the taxi-ways over to a strip for those guys.

But the only gliders I have ever seen flown out of there are the ones that the CAP has at the base there in Birchwood.

I don't recall ever seeing gliders up at Palmer either, and that would be prime territory for them, I would think.

It has been a while since I have been to the rifle range there to go shooting.....I have a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 that was built in 1943 that I have to go try out.



No No not at the airplanes  Laugh out loud

Alaskaairlines,

No, I didn't get out of the plane to take the picture. The pic wasn't taken by me. If you look closely, you can see me in the seat.

Photopilot,

That's one of the neatest photos I have ever seen!

Hey Dimitry,

Nice prices. I used to pay $55/hr "wet" for a Cessna 152 II at Manassas Regional Airport in Virginia. I transfered to Langley AFB which is about an hour from Virginia Beach which they have reasonable prices to rent aircrafts. Cheaper then a civilian airport. I don't have a picture of me in controls of a plane but I do have several pictures outside of the Piper Twin Aztec that I officially logged last year, a good MEI/DPE friend of mine let me fly his twin and on my logbook it says "Introduction to multi-engine flying." I logged an hour of MEL time with 3 greased landings. Also I have a picture of me standing outside the door of a Cessna Citation 550 on the ramp at DCA that my best friend flies.

Nice Dmitry!

O.k. forgive the quality as it came from a video I was taking...
But here I am a few years ago...



I was the only guy in the squadron at the time qualified to fly in the back seat, (TA-4J) I wonder if that is because I knew how to take pictures?
