RVMEDER, When you say "Spirit of St. Louis" are you flying one of the replicas? I've seen the one that used to be in San Diego museum (burned up in fire) didn't know there more. Love to see some pictures.
C172G, H, N, and S. PA-44. Right now I'm flying the PA-44 and PA-44-LVL6 sim. Our planes are all new though, I've flown a good deal of old ones too so I got a good spread, but I'm amazed at how "different" the same-model of plane is comparing a new to an old model.
I'm getting my commercial multi right now, taking the FAA written next tues! Private, Single, Multi, and single/multi-Instrument so far. Going for Instructor this summer. Right now it's all "backwards". I get in a plane, and I have to PAY embry-riddle for the time. Soon it should be the other way around . Graduating this semester.
Here's one we did today that's fun;
Fly the sim and put the plane in a good banked turn one way...then freeze it and try and get up and "walk" out...man I don't know if my brain has recovered yet....We did an engine fire where I dive-bombed to the runway at 140kts and man, it really seems like you are "falling" out of the sky...
crap..i must have forgotten my name or something...
add mooney M20 to the list above...silly me, I forgot.
J. Thiessen - Nope - Spirit of St. Louis as in "SUS" - Airport in Chesterfield, MO.
Fair amount of time, just haven't gotten taildragger endorsement yet, so not one of the replica pilots (and, no, I don't want to get into that whole silly debate about whether I "really" know how to fly because of I don't have the endorsement!).
BTW - didn't I see your byline on an article somewhere?
I fly old rented C-172s out of Calgary Springbank (CYBW). I fly for me, just for fun, for now.

hey all used to fly as a career, but now i just enjoy flying remote controlled planes and helicopters. must say it is a lot of fun ( and also safer :) ). i used to fly petrol engine fully aerobatic propellor remote control planes such as the CMP Yak 54 ARF 140 ( 4 channel fotuba remote control) , but now i am more into smaller sized [url=http://www.danbartoys.com/rc-helicopters]rc toys[/url] such as ready built and ready to fly micro sized helicopters and planes. these are so small and so accurate that i can actually fly them indoor. i set up a landing area with points defined for accurate landing. i then conduct contests with friends. including points for best form in the circuit (up wind, downwind, cross wind etc...) and of course the most points for hitting the Zebra. hours of fun and at a very low cost. it is quite amazing how costly these toys were in the past and how cheap flying toys cost today
I fly for the heck of it in C-150, C-152, C-172, C-172RG, C-182, C-182RG, C-206, C-207, T-210, C-310, Tomahawk, Warrior, Dakota, Arrow, Aztec, M-20, Beech A-36, Cougar, C-90, Beech 18, and NA B-25.
I would like to share a start up site with pilots. [url]www.flygatoday.com[/url] is a commercial free site to promote goodwill through flying. Hope it is of use to you. I fly a sweet little 172 K with 160 Hp. Ram Air and a Power Flow Exhaust, I love fly and what GA. Stands for. Fly safe , Fly more. Randall
PA-28-161 Warrior II Melbourne, FL (MLB) Personal Hobby
C150, C150 Aerobat, C172, C210TurboRG, B707, B747, B767, (as a passenger) and loved every flight. Total rides a few hundred give or take. Near 1000 Hours above terra-firma I'm guessing. Can't wait to ride in the Airbus giant and the Spaceship 1. One of my favorite things is uncordinated turns and other unusual attitudes in Aerobats.
Currently own a Piper Tomahawk based in Robbinsville, NJ (N87) Past own or partner: Cherokee 6-260, Cherokee 160, Beech Musketeer Lots of time in: Various Piper, Cessna and Beech aircraft plus various gliders I fly for fun and occasional transportation. I pay for it doing other less interesting things!
Own and fly, with a partner, a Grumman Cheetah. Previous airplane was a Piper Colt converted to taildragger. I also fly gliders and own an LS-4 with partners. Previously belonged to a club which owned a Tripacer and an Archer. Learned to fly in an Aeronca Champ and a Cessna 150.
