New Plane - Old(er) Pilot
After a 29 year absence I realized that with the kids and salary both "grown", I could once again start flying! I'm an avid boater and keep a 37' Express Cruiser on Lake Guntersville, on the Tennessee River at Goosepond, Scottsboro Alabama. After a long and frustrating search nationwide for a Piper Warrior or Archer I finally found one in my own back yard and bought it.
My journey back to flying (with a 21 year old CFI, excellent and very patient!) has been fun so far with 6 hours newly under my belt. I'm also waiting for the FAA to rule on my special issuance which all three of the AME's that I've transitioned through on that whole SI journey say is between 95-99% likely to be fully approved. Of course, if it isn't, I'll stop being a pilot and flip this beautiful 1978 Piper Warrior II!
But I plan to be flying this beauty on my own in a few short weeks.
My background was learning in a Beechcraft Sport, then several years of C150/C172 flying. First Piper flight was a few months ago in a rental for my re-discovery flight. Loved the plane!
So, hi everyone!
