I started my student pilot training in 1965 when I was 15 years old. They soloed me at 7 1/2 hours in June of '66. I then farted around for 19 years and took my PP check ride in March of 1984. It's been hit and miss ever since and I've accumulated well under 1000 hours in the intervening 31 years. Oh well, and so it goes. There are currently two non-op airplanes in the hangar; a Zenith CH-701, and a Starduster SA-100. The Starduster is far closer to flying than the Zenith and I think I'll have it going by Summer '16. Over the years we've owned 1/5th of a Franklin powered 172 (fantastic airplane largely paid for by a bunch of non-flying doctor partners. That's the way to do it if you can find a club like that) and a really nice Mooney M20C which we couldn't afford. I may buy something just to get airborne while the Starduster and the Zenith projects plod along. So that's my story and I'm sticking to it 'till something changes.
