I always enjoy local air shows, aviation documentaries, seeing YouTube aviators such as Steveo, Flight Chops, Angle of Attack, and so many others. I am now buckling down and studying, looking at ground schools [Sportys / MzeroA], reading through handbooks, and soaking up as much information as I can to become proficient. I am also building a nice trainer sim setup for time spent on the ground. I own the Honeycomb Alpha Yoke and pre-ordered their throttle quadrant. Thanks to Stay Level Avionix and Real Sim Gear, this will be a stellar setup with Microsoft Flight Sim 2020.
Thanks for reading and looking forward to connecting! If anyone is ever in the area, I would love to meet up!
Hey Arnold, Welcome to the fraternity of flyers. I stopped at Lake Havasu in June of 2017 while on an adventure trip from Jacksonville FL to San Diego. We had 4 airplanes with 8 pilots in the group. Three of us were US citizens, 5 pilots traveled to the US from Italy. What a great trip. Dinners were great! My advice is to start lessons and the Private Pilot License will soon follow. Regards, John
If you ever find yourself flying in again, please give me a shout!
I don't see much in the way of flight instructors or rental planes at KHII. It might be difficult to train there unless you have that handled.
If its in your heart, you make it happen!
