Who is gonna fly that rental Remos now, heh ?

Remos will always feel a bit special for me since that’s the plane I learned to fly in ... but I got a feeling you preferred Cessna skycatcher ..right ?

Without a doubt, I much prefer the C162 over the Remos GX. The C162 feels like an airplane while the Remos GX feels like a toy. That said, I enjoyed flying each of them very much.

I have logged time in 41 makes and/or models of light single and multi-engine airplanes. I loved every minute of it.

I'll turn 70 next month. I had two heart surgeries in 2009 and still fly regularly. (Currently a C172 on BasicMed medical). One of my goals is to be a UFO ( United Flying Octogenarians ) See their web site at https://ufopilots.org/ You have to be legal PIC on or after your 80th birthday. If I am not able, I won't push it, but it's a goal I'm striving for.
P.S. They're always needing new members. :roll:

I only have two years on you, Yoda - but I'm counting down toward the same goal.

That's because their members keep aging out of the system. Funny how that works.

I still have 4 or 5 hours of pre-paid flight time and 9 months left on my insurance and flight review. I'll reevaluate my decison when I use up my pre-paid time. While this is not an entirely financial decision, my wife and I will come into a fairly huge sum of money before long (hopefully not real soon) and that could sway my decision.

Tim: Hope you continue having fun, sometimes you have to work at it a little.

Is that money coming from the Nigerian Prince you responded to :P

Yes. I sent him all my information and I'm just waiting for him to deposit the funds in my account. :roll:

I want to be 100, and get busted for buzzing the tower.

Negative, Ghost Rider. The pattern is full.

I have decided to postpone this decision until 12/1/18. My insurance and flight review are good through November, so I might as well stay with it until then.

Perhaps Vashon Ranger will happen somewhere in between and change things ... :)

I won't have my mortgage paid off by then. Paying it off is the key to getting my flying budget up to $1,000 per month.
