    Got my commercial, instrument, multi as well as my CFI/CFII
    Sitting at just under the 1k mark and biding my time as an instructor for the University of North Dakota until I can get hired at a regional.
    I really wouldnt do anything else for a job, yeah some day it does feel like a job but then you take off and all your problems and stresses wash away, until the student has to land anyways.

    If I came across as condescending believe me it was not intended to be that way. I really enjoy working for UND the only down side is the bitter grand forks winters.
    We have won the aerobatics trophies the last two years and the flight team and won the SAFECON championship this last season. Curious to see how it will play out this coming year because we have lost a lot of the people on the team from last year.

    Private and Commercial pilot with instrument for single and multi. At 331 Total Time right now and DYING to find 169 more hours! Not quite ready for the CFIs right now.

    Anyone looking to hire a part time pilot?

    Probably not a bad topic for my first post.

    I'm an aircraft owner and pilot--own and fly a Cessna 172, RV8, currently refurbishing a Taylorcraft and have a deposit in for a Lancair Legacy that we'll begin building around this time next year, starting up in Oregon at the factory with their builder's assist program. Will have to stop there as our hangar will not hold any more planes. Other choice is to go back to work full time so I can afford a second hangar. Don't think I want to do that.

    Isn't artherd the CEO of some new payment transaction service? Wondering what he flies. The biz GA world has really changed in the past three years and you're seeing a lot of kerosene burners for sale. Not a bad way to get around if you can afford all that goes with them.

    Ok, first plane ... 1968 Cherokee 180D. GREAT plane for a first time owner. Capable, simple, cheap (relatively) to operate and maintain. 1/3 owner in a partnership.

    Current, 1965 Mooney M20C. No where near a simple as the Cherokee, more maintenance, but 20 - 30 knots faster on the same fuel burn. 1/4 owner in a partnership.

    @ TexasFlyer

    Either buying them or managing them. I would love to get a small business started just housing, maintaining and preping those aircraft for flights.
