Very nice! Of course all civil aviation came to a skreeching halt after 9/11 and life kind of got ahold of me and I haven't flown much at all since then.
This is a ZodiacXL kit plane and was going to be my retirement project --
But of course the economy hit and now I may have to work longer than I originally planned. Bloody hell, I am already working longer than I originally planned!
I would love to build a kit plane too - but I'm not that confident of my skills in that direction!! One thing I love about the Cessna is that, while it feels like it belongs to a past era in some ways, when you're at FL100 over the Scottish mountains it's all about reliability - nothing else matters.
The guy that taught me to fly was an ex-WWII Spitfire pilot and I always remember, when he was teaching me to fly at night and we discussed the question of an engine failure at night, after we'd been through all the usual precautionary actions he said - "There's one last thing you have to do before you attempt a landing at night with an engine failure - pray!"
