Professional pilots: what else do you fly?

Wed Dec 04, 2019 6:44 pm

Hello dear a.netters,

This is a question addressed to those of you who make a living from flying aircraft.
So, outside of your job, do you fly other aircraft for leisure? A Cessna 172, a glider, a Mustang?
Or is it rather the case that, given the many hours you already spend in the air, you would rather not want to see any winged machine in your free time?

Looking forward to your replies!

For me it’s Extra 300, every now and then...

I sail a sailboat. That is a wing on its side does that count?

I own a small experimental airplane, although I don't fly it anymore. The exposure to liability, and serious injury is just too great anymore. And frankly, it isn't much fun at this point in my life. I only keep it because it was my fathers airplane. At some point in the near future, I'll sell it, or cut it up for scrap.
