Last Year I Bought A Plane
A year ago today, I went and bought an aircraft from a little old lady in Cadillac, Michigan with my friend Jeffrey. Between the two of us, we’ve flown her quite regularly since taking the keys. Flying from Michigan back to Portland over a four-day journey over Mt. Rushmore, the Tetons, and numerous other stop son the way. Soon after I did something crazy and took her to Burning Man for her first time on the Playa gifting numerous flights to many dirty hippies. Numerous other trips all over Oregon and into Washington and Idaho. She’s been all over the place and it’s only been a year. I can’t wait to find out where she takes us on our next adventures.
I don’t have all my numbers in order, but since we’ve bought her, we’ve flown her a surpising 165.7 hours! Wow, that’s a lot of flying and more than we were expecting. I had planned on us hitting around 50 hours each our first year. I’m glad to know that we’re riding her hard and she’s keeping us going. It’s a great relationship!
Of those 165.7 hours, I’ve logged 93.56 hours in my logbook flying so many people all over the place. I’m so glad that I can share her with all my friends and family.
Let’s keep it going!!!
