Re: Sebring Expo 2015

Florida fliers appear to be very quiet as of late. Reference my previous post in the "Meetups" section.

Kuffum1, I see that you're in the Sarasota area. Interested in some hanger flying next Sunday? We're planning on flying into Page Field next Saturday.

Page Field (KFMY), Ft. Myers, FL, in late December

Flying with the family from Nebraska to Florida later this month in order to enjoy some nicer weather with family in Ft. Myers. Our plan is to take two leisurely days to get there, with an overnight stop in Eufaula, AL. Planning on departing on 26 December and being in Florida from 27Dec-2Jan. Would...

South-Central Missouri: Early Saturday Afternoon, 3 Sep 11

After hitting a fly-in breakfast in Council Bluffs on Saturday morning, my family and I are going to head to Lebanon, MO (KLBO), to check out a place that might put a new interior in our plane. I'm guessing that we'll be landing about 1230. After spending about an hour and a half with the gentleman ...

Re: Not selling - yet. . . Just looking for feedback

Jeb, Thanks a ton! Hopefully I won't be busting any stadium TFRs with this bird! About the GAMI's, I did the fuel flow/leaning test on my Six after I had gotten her. She had GAMIs, but they needed tightening up. GAMI charged me the $99 adjustment fee, which I was more than happy to pay. Even though ...

Re: Not selling - yet. . . Just looking for feedback

Well, I've come full circle. Was without a plane for less than two months, and it felt like eternity. First of all, THANK YOU to my wife for putting up with my single-mindedness for a couple months. Also for driving 1400miles to Texas to look at one plane and for letting me travel to Florida for two...

Re: Not selling - yet. . . Just looking for feedback

I knew that the photo would make people work, unless they used the filename, JEFF!! That's okay. I'm just happy to have stumped Dave and Jeb because I'm SURE that they looked at the picture. :-) At any rate, the one in the previous photo isn't going to work out, but I did love the way the plane flew...

Re: Not selling - yet. . . Just looking for feedback

SHE SOLD!! Sorry that I'm just now reporting this. Took between a week and ten days. I got what was asking for her (ended up being $89.5K), and flew her to the new owner in Kentucky. I was hugely lucky! Now, since I can't be in Oshkosh this weekend, I'm on my own AirVenture with my family this weeke...

Re: Not selling - yet. . . Just looking for feedback

You know if I was looking to buy my own ship, for that price (and the mighty Aussie Dollar!) I'd be investigating... it would look good with a VH- registration! Its certainly MUCH better decked out than the last PA32 I sat in the back of which had the ORIGINAL 1960's era dash and avionics to boot! ...

Re: Not selling - yet. . . Just looking for feedback

Thanks guys. I added the "one" to the writeup. I'll be talking with my friend about my NEXT plane next week, so I hope to go live on this advertisement soon thereafter. I'm already thinking of adjusting the price downward a little bit, but can afford to wait for awhile at wherever I do set...

Re: Instrument Rating Training

Good luck and HAVE FUN!! One product I used years ago, and it still available, is Elite's Virtual CFII ( https://www.flyelite.com/?page_id=953&shopp_pid=12 ). It is $99 and I guarantee that you can buy this and a set of computer yoke and rudder pedals, and come out ahead after you save time actu...
