Flying is good for the brain, in addition to your lifespan...

I'll just leave this over here.

UCAP Law 1. Time spent flying is NOT subtracted from your lifespan

UCAP Law 2. Time spent flying (gliders, at least) increases brain gray matter density, according to recently published neuroscience study.

The results of the study are already obvious to the casual observer and pilot community. :)

Great post... I'm going to use this data in my case for buying an RV6. Jury is out on if my wife will buy it!
