Lol... just kidding, I think that’s a great idea, main thing to remember, do NOT let the nose wheel hit first, alway pull it up when landing...

Well, that’s the second thing... first is don’t crash.

I have about 21 hrs and was in the Navy but my right eye DQ'd me. In my home town, the main street at the airport is named after my flight instructor, Eddie Duffard. RIP Eddie.

SakhirM4 is probably the most well known. I'm fairly sure F22 is and Jockey may be, as well.

You have one more hour than I did... but mine was just private after I got out of the Air Force... fun experience though.

There's also a saying that your number of landings should be equal to your number of takeoffs. In my case, I have one less landing than takeoff.

That’s cool, Sakhir...I came really really close to giving that a shot. Passed the exams, had the eyesight, but opted not to pursue it. Always wondered what if.

Do it - you'll love it. I got my license in the late 90s in NZ, and am now thinking about getting my US license and taking it up again - just have to see if there's enough destinations in Texas to make it worth while. NZ had a lot of beautiful places to fly to that were pretty close.

And I have one more takeoff than landing too

Mine however was legit - we were doing a flying school cross country competition, and the pilots had to swap mid flight (instructor in right seat of course) - so I took off and flew the first leg, then climbed in the back and let another guy take over who then did the landing. Swapping pilots in a C172 is not easy mid air.

I can tell that Rudi is getting really irritated at us talking about pilot stuff instead of dating stuff, and I can get that, so I started a new thread about pilot stuff.... lol...
