    That's a great price for a wet da-20. You can get a C152 around here for that price, but not much else.

    Re: Let's hear it for the pilots!

    Hey y'all im joining the ranks as a furloughed pilot as well. I flew the CRJ7/9 and loved the plane but hated the job (read as scheduling). I just moved back to East Texas and waiting out PUBNAT 8. Im hoping im making the right decision of leaving professional flying behind after all that money spent into it. I think/hope in the long run I will be much happier that I made the switch and fly for fun. I can see it now, no more 3am wake up calls to fly out of Montreal in the snow!

    Re: Let's hear it for the pilots!

    I've been a full time flight instructor for over four years now, currently assistant chief instructor at a school at the Lantana Airport in Florida located just south of PBI. I trained in Norman, OK and instructed there for a month before the school closed. Then moved back home to Des Moines, IA and instructed at Ames Municipal for 6 months. Moved on to aerial photography for another six months, most of which was spent in Northern Maine (Presque Isle). After being laid off from that I moved down to West Palm and started instructing, became assistant chief at a 141 school until it closed in March of 2008. Did some freelance instructing and then moved next door to another 141 school at LNA and later became assistant chief. Sick of the treatment and the instability in flying, so here I am. In that time I have logged about 3500 hours total, of which about 3000 is dual given, and about 200 multi instructing in a Seneca. About 1000 in the 152 the rest is between 172s, 182s, Arrows, Warriors, etc.

    Re: Let's hear it for the pilots!

    My husband is a pilot for Skywest, we also have two personal planes that we own. We have a piper pacer 200hp which is a tailwheel. We fly this plane all over it's a great plane we take it up to Idaho for a month each year and fly into back country strips and we just finished restoring the airplane in June and we have over 130 hours on it. We also have a piper comanche and it is more or our straight and level plane we use this plane to get where we want to go fast. We have family in CA that we fly there and visit frequently and we take this. This is a fun plane and can hold alot of luggage. Aviation is our complete life. I am in the process of getting my license slowly but surely, Kevin is my instrustor so we do that on the side. Kevin (my husband) has over 6000 hours, pretty good for being 33yrs old. I just took my AT-SAT and got a 91.7 so it looks like I'll get to control him at work and at home.. haha!
