instrument SEL. About 900 hours. Had a 66 M20E but sold it 8 years ago. Flew rentals for a while. Haven't flown in 4 years. Miss it but busy riding now.

BTW, any guesses why you don't see the good power to weight ratio 2 strokes flying out there? All piston planes seem to be thumpers.

Good luck,

mwc

Private, then instrument, then commercial SEL, then ran out of money. About 290 hours, all in rentals.

I like the 172 Skyhawks.

I too don’t have much time for it anymore though.

I'm not a pilot, I'm a flight engineer on Chinook helicopters. Logged around 2800 hours since '87, most of my work happens before and after the flight. I don't fly as much anymore, try to fly on the YZ but am too scared to leave the ground :D:) .

Private SEL, Instrument, 5 hrs. shy of Commercial.

Haven't been current for several years, but want to get back into it. Best ride of my life (even better than my WR) was in an Air Force T-37.

Hey ISBB it's called a T-41 Mescalaro (don't know if I spelled it right). If you have eyes you ought to get into the USAF and fly a real jet - easy to do with your experience. Mark
