Flying these things on YS is fun but there is no feeling like the real thing. I like to fly GA but there is no buzz like real life. That's mainly why people don't do it. But this should be fun!

I love Piper Washin Air-Makin very much. Because it was the plane using which I learned LANDING :)

Agreed Alpha Star there really is no replacement for actual flight.But for this old heartbusted man this is as close as I will ever get again.So I try to make the best of it. ;)

Aww, Gunny, bud. That's heartbreaking, no pun intended.
Maybe you could try LSA?
I'm working with a friend to build a Velocity XL-RG we bought used, and to save money on the engine, we're getting a Subaru boxer from a wrecker's, lol.

@Skyline
I already tried for a Light Sport down grade but no insurance company will touch me with my disability on file.I don't know about Canada but in the USA no insurance no fly no matter what rating you had.My last flight health rating was red stamped as unfit for flight permanently back in 98.And in my current state of health I would not endanger the public by even trying.Ironic the thing that made flying such a joy is now the thing that would kill me and possibly others :(

Jeeze, buddy, I'm sorry to hear that. Do you get to fly with others? Right seat occasionally?

Up until 6 months ago I had a lady friend who would call me from time to time to ride 2nd seat with her to [CRW]Charleston WV.But she got transferred to another office in DC.So not for awhile.A Beech D-50E twin a really fun fly. ;)

Ive got meshes for Jaribu 160C and Katana.

Are they the kind of plane you guys are interested in?
If so, they will be next (...after my A-26 Invader is done.)
