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 don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

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

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?

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.)
