I started flying when I was very young. friends owned a float base. so from the age of about three I spent many hours in planes everything from twin beaches , beavers otters and many others over the years.
then I went for my ppl and flew 172's. then went to work for an airline in the great north of Ontario. worked as a crew man. so experienced the hawker sidly 748( boring to fly) the dc 3 (more fun to fly).cessna 402(totally auto,no fun),the Otter (which was my favourite). but now I haven't flown anything but models since 1986. (onlyt started rc last season but always had an interest in it

Work is what you do for the love of it. My work is model-building. A job is what I do so I can afford to do my work. SPADS RULE

Got mine the summer of '95 through the Air Cadet program at St. Andrews north of Winnepeg.

Since then getting my degree in Mechanical Engineering, and flying models as much as I do I really have not used it much, maybe someday in the future I will persue it more.

that is quite an impressive list...expecially from a relatively small group of online RC modelers!!

I soloed on a Fleet Canuck, most of my time is in the 150 and 172's with a smattering of other types. Paid 45 bucks for a ride in a twin beech last summer at Arlington and wound up in the co-joes seat and got to fly it for a couple of laps around the circuit. There were about 30 planes in the air at the time.........lotsa fun..

Quit flying in the early 70's but my son threw me in the left seat for a flight to the US a couple of years ago.....

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

I do a little full size flying as well ! I have to change my handle soon since I've recently been kicked down to the "light twin" 767.

Hey Mark, Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I think the 767 is an awsome airliner! Did you ever read the book "Free Fall"? Don't think any pilot could do that in a 747. Well at the least, your still doing what you love to do....flying....AND getting paid for it. Ya gotta love that!!!!

I got my private licence in 1981 owned a couple of 172s and had lots of fun haven't flown much for about 10 years or more (married with children) I need to do some upgrading but hope to get back to it someday. I have arounD 300 hrs and about 5 years ago did a checkout with an instructor that said I flew better than he did so I guess you never loose it I have also had a RC plane for about 20 some years flew it for awhile and then lost interest , this year me and my sons got into it and its been fun building spads and crashing and building more, cause my balsa plane isn't anymore. So maybe Someday ill met some of you guys at the field. (Vulcan alberta has a fly in every july)
check it out
