    Any regrets moving up to better plane

    So far, this hasn't happen in my case. I flew about 120 hours per year with the Cherokee and ended up with about 100 hours in the Comanche. I pretty much took the same trips throughout the year so right around the same mileage, just faster to my destination. But, now I also moved to a place...

    Interesting new Wings Course

    True, but then looking at the Wingly model in Europe, it doesn’t seem like the airplanes fall out of the air and there is carnage in the air caused by pilots on their platform. ‍

    Interesting new Wings Course

    I was that entrepreneur back in 2020 in Canada and contemplated starting a similar business. I got a legal opinion from a lawyer and then approached Transport Canada with it before spending any significant money on building the business. TC basically said they don't really care about the legal...

    Good question. I guess it wouldn't be hard to put some limitations on that e.g. only planes with up to six seats qualify. There are so many flights with one person on the plane and 3-5 empty seats going where others need to go that same day as well, every day. They end up driving. I frequently...

    This company doesn’t even exist anymore. FAA effectively shut them down years ago. I thought that was the wrong decision. I think they had it tabled in congress to allow those types of companies to operate but it never made it to be voted on. In Europe (which is arguably way more restrictive...

    I hope none of you were waiting for the Apple electric car...

    I’m with you on this. EVs aren’t my cup of tea. I even put some effort into liking them, renting different EVs on my travels but didn’t like the experience with any of them, including Teslas.

    I hope none of you were waiting for the Apple electric car...

    No surprise. EV car sales are in decline, even in Canada where the gov’t pushes their agenda for those vehicles like crazy. High cost of production + declining consumer interest. At this point, the only reason for them to continue would be for optics but it wouldn’t be a wise business decision.

    Texas fires

    The smoke hasn't reached them yet. Wait until it does and the complains will start.

    Texas fires

    Looks like Canada last summer. Terrible. Hope it's just property damage and no lives. Stuff can be replaced!

    Students are "Learners" now...........

    Last time we went to New York, I told my wife our hotel is in Theyhattan. She looked at me like I lost it so I said, well MANhattan just sounds so sexist and non inclusive, it's just a matter of time before they will have to change it so we might as well get used to it now.

    Texas fires

    Used to live up there (Borger, TX) but don't know anyone in that area anymore. Sad to see though.

    Any regrets moving up to better plane

    I assist my mechanic on my complex HP airplane and it's saving me some $$$. Really, the only major difference between the Cherokee and the Comanche in terms of annuals is, two more cylinders to check and the landing gear. ADs are what they are. There are less complex planes with more ADs than...

    Any regrets moving up to better plane

    Moved from a Cherokee to a Comanche. Absolutely no regrets. The speed, comfort and convenience of the Comanche beats the Cherokee any day and twice on Sundays. Only thing is, I fly less hours. Not because I fly less, I just get to my destination much faster.

    For Sale: Aircraft Thinking of moving to a twin - 1958 Comanche 250 for sale.

    Haha. Nope, money ordered cleared my bank account the same day and I paid for the Comanche the very next day, partly with the money received from the Cherokee so was definitely legit. It's been almost a year so someone would be chasing me by now if the money order wasn't legit lol. It's really...

    For Sale: Aircraft Thinking of moving to a twin - 1958 Comanche 250 for sale.

    It absolutely does. I had my Piper Cherokee up for sale for $65,000 and couldn't take anything less as I needed that much for the Comanche. I had it online for two months with nothing but tire kickers, one offering me his "rare cat" in exchange for the plane lol. Then, out of nowhere, some guy...

    For Sale: Aircraft Thinking of moving to a twin - 1958 Comanche 250 for sale.

    There's only one answer to this question: Twin Comanche I would assume. I heard the only time a Comanche owner sells a Comanche is when they move up to a Twin Comanche. In terms of price, I think you're in the ballpark. I would post it on TAP, Controller and Barnstormers and see what happens...

    Air-to-Air Piper Tri-Pacer

    That’s what one of the past owners of the Ercoupe I used to own did. Big, professional football player who apparently loved flying around in the little Ercoupe. He sat in the middle and used the outer pedals (that Ercoupe had the pedals). He wasn’t able to close the canopy so it was an open air...

    What's For Dinner?

    Today, nothing to write home about. Yesterday, I made lamb steak in garlic butter and rosemary with grilled corn. Was pretty good. If takeout, any BBQ place that has fried okra as a side would work just fine for me.

    It’s contagious.

    That's how I got "infected". Talked to a business partner who told me how he travels back and forth between south Texas and Arkansas where he has family. Didn't even need a ride to catch the bug. Two weeks after that conversation I took an intro lesson and six months later I had my license with...
