New, from Glendora CA

Postby RalphInCA » Sat Jan 24, 2015 10:48 am

Hi Guys, Just joined the forum. I live in Glendora, CA (San Gabriel Valley - LA region) and am currently renting a Remos G3 from Foothill Flying Club at Cable (CCB)

Love it. Fun airplane.

I am a reentry pilot. First earned my PPL in the 80s. Took a long time off and am no getting back in to aviation. For now, low and slow is good for me.

Hi Ralph!

Nothing wrong with low and slow! I like to look down at the freeways and see all the cars rushing somewhere, or up at the contrails streaking down south towards FL and think….hey, I'm retired! :mrgreen:

Hi Ralph,

Another new member from your neck of the woods. I live in Burbank and fly from El Monte, having grown up a bike ride away from that airport. Maybe I'll see you at an airport sometime--I'm learning in a Flight Design CTSW.

Do you rent the CTSW? I don't live too far from El Monte and would love to fly a CTSW, to compare to the Remos.

I do--contact the SoCal Flying Club and they can set you up with a checkout flight. :-)
