    I wish I was...the sad part is my mom bought me a free lesson back when I was like 21 and never got around to using it, wish I had now, possibly would have been a good start vs waiting on the faa to get their act together.

    I'll be at least enrolling in ground school though later this spring/summer

    Have my PPL(H) with turbine transition. Was lucky enough to get my rating in a Jetranger. Was interested because I was flying a while back and some guys came up and started flying a Phantom next to me. An aircraft flew by around 500' and the guys sat right in his path. Gave me a moments pause to think how much some sort of regulation is needed to ensure the safety of those of us in the air as well.

    No PPL, but Airman Certificate with A&P and FCC General. Hope to be first in line to add Part 107 Operator endorsement to Airman Certificate!

    Private Pilots license back in 1983 with a whopping 225 hours. A&P license since 1982. I plan on getting my flight review in a Light Sport Aircraft and exercising my privilege to fly as a Light Sport Pilot using my drivers license in lew of a 3rd class medical once I get my 333 exemption.
