Who Here Is A Pilot/Pilot In Training?

Thu Nov 04, 2004 7:42 am

Who here is a pilot/pilot in training and describe what you do. Personally I am a pilot in training. I flew today, I got to takeoff maintain, turn, descend, and I did a little bit on approach. It was really great. I fly Cessa 172/182 out of Willoughby Lost Nation KLNN.

I am a private pilot with single, multi, and instrument ratings.

Love flying those twins and in IFR.

Good luck in your pilot training TriJets. Send me an email if you ever have any questions.

Private Pilot: I fly Cherokee family and Tiger aircraft, strictly for fun - no professional flying ambitions: too old.

Currently working toward my PPL out of KLVK (Livermore Municipal) in Livermore, CA with professional ambitions.

Last flight was night VFR pattern work w/a minor emergency when neither my instructor or myself noticed that the flaps were stuck at 30 degrees on touch and go (the handle was broken, we thought they had retracted). Knew something was amiss when we rotated at 48 knots with no back pressure on my part and I immediately had to correct with strong forward pressure on the yoke to keep the nose from ballooning to a dangerous attitude (I had retrimmed for takeoff on the landing roll). Flew a tight pattern at 60 knots and negligible climb rate to get back to the field. Builds character eh  Big grin

I fly a '79 C172N, '82 C172P and '97 C172R at my school.

Currently hold Private and Instrument ratings. About a week left until my commercial checkride, then I'll get started on CFI, and Multi after that. I'm based at a private flight school in SW Michigan, and will probably teach there for a year or so. Working for United Express/Air Wisconsin in South Bend, IN, hoping that may help me with the whole "foot in the door" thing.  Smile

Private, Single Engine Land, Instrument Airplane.

I like to fly for fun, my wife finds us "fly-to" destinations. Most frequent planes: Bonanzas (club has three, a C33 [alright, that's a Debonair, but with 300 hp and the speeds that gives, controllers always promote me to Bonanza], an F33 and an A36; a C177RG and a PA28-180.

Flying ain't cheap, but I like to point out that it is less costly than psychotherapy, and a heckuva lot more effective.

Been lazy/busy...workin on PPL, then starting in January (when I move back home), starting on Instrument and Commercial and Multi after sometime. I'll probably stop there, as I am hoping for a pilot slot in the Air National Guard, and they'll give me all the training/hours I could ever want.

I have about 10 hours but decided breaking my neck and becoming a quadriplegic sounded like an excellent chapter to add to my life plan instead.  Nuts

So, I don't fly anymore. I'm thinking of becoming an aircraft broker. Anyone generous in the business up to giving me suggestions?

Commercial Multi with an instrument rating. I'm trying to get the single add-on finished up but mother nature needs to help me with that. For now I only have a private for the single. As soon as that's out of the way I'm going to get my CFI as fast as practical so that I can start sharing this addiction I have.
