I plan to purchase an airplane with RG (retractable gears) which is considered a high performance aircraft. Can I hire an independent CFI (not a ground /flight school) to teach me flight training lessons for the purpose to acquire my PPL (private pilot license)? This would probably fall under Part 61.
I have often wondered it we have to do our engine run ups and magneto checks right before takeoff Most ga aircraft checklist call for this check just before take off. What is the reason. If there is plenty of space, why not do the check in the chocks before taxi to find out you have a problem before getting all the way to the runway. 
Hi,  I'm Sid H,

Looking to buy an aircraft, have a single engine rating w/instrument ticket, 700 hrs in 172s, PA28 180s, PA32s.  
Would like a faster plane because I like to do cross country flight. Mostly fly solo, occasional passenger or two.  Usually fly once or twice a month.  Live in Baltimore, MD., Fly out of Middle River, MD.   Looking at a Mooney or Bonanza platform.  Please provide your thought.  Pros/Cons, etc, Love Flying!!!
Thanks!
