What Planes Have You Actually Piloted?

Wed Oct 05, 2005 2:33 pm

Hey,
This is not another one of those 'what planes have you flown on' threads.

I was wondering what kinds of aircraft our pilots out there have flown.

Here's mine:

Cessna 172
Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche
Piper PA-28 Cherokee

It is like the UH-1 helicopter. The Army's "popular" name for it was the "Iroquois." As if! Everyone who had ever watched the evening news for a whole generation knew it was a Huey!

Never really thought of that. Most of us always call a C172 a C172 and not a Skyhawk. Yet I've never really heard anyone call a Piper Seneca a PA34-200T.

I'm not a pilot yet, but I've had a go on the following:
- Cessna C172
- American General 5B Tiger
- Piper PA-28 Cherokee

An, off the record, I did some hand-flying on a Dash 8 once during a ferry flight...

But I just started groundschool for the PPL and hope to be flying legally on a C150, C172 or a brand-new Eagle by Christmas.

I flew "hands-on" on a Cessna 172SP last summer, total of 3 flight hours, including 3 landings, and 1 IFR flight from OKB (Oceanside, CA) to FUL (Fullerton, CA). They've been logged as official hours, so that's pretty cool, but since then, I haven't been in the cockpit...

Maybe I will checked off in other planes one day, but have no major desire to do it now nor the financial resources to go beyond my simple PPL.

I took about 35 hours of lessons in C-152s a long time ago. I also have 1.6 hours of "Incentive Flight," back seat time in an F-15D, where i got to maneuver the jet twice - including a barrel roll (harder than it looks!).

I'm not officially a pilot, but I have some time logged in the right seat.

I piloted a Cessna 172 (reg. N734JS) over Angola, IN, with a flight instructor in the left seat. He had taken off, and when we were heading back to Angola Tri-State Steuben County Airport (ANQ/KANQ), he let me take the yoke on my side for a while. I flew several oval patterns in a progressive descent toward ANQ. He took over for landing.

I really enjoyed it! Hopefully, someday after I finish my schooling in London, I will finally realise my lifelong dream and get a private pilot licence.

I also have a bit of simulator time--the 777 simulator at the LHR Heathrow Visitors Centre. I landed the plane without crashing!

With my bone-conduction hearing aid and my one good eye (the left eye), could I at least go for a private pilot licence? Please let me know!

Next time you're in FRA, check out Lufthansa. As far as I recall they are still offering great packages to the general public. These packages include an exclusive tour behind the airport (catering companies, baggage handling, emergency response facilities) and some include an hour in a full motion sim. They usually last 1-2 days and include hotel and you can get them for under 1000 Euros. IIRC, you can even redeem your Miles & More miles on them. I think that the company Pro Flight is the organizer. The only snag is that you cannot choose the sim, it depends on what is available.
