I took the “What Airplane Are You” quiz and here are the results.
Travel by GA aircraft can make the journey as much an enjoyable part of the trip as the destination. In fact, some of the trips I would like to make are all about the journey. I would like to fly the length of the Mississippi, follow Highway 1 from Maine to Florida, and make a figure 8 around Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. To make travel by light aircraft more practical, I plan to start working on my instrument rating soon after getting my private certificate.
For fun, I want to get a glider rating and try flying ultralights. I don’t have much interest in doing serious aerobatics but I would like to take an introductory course. A sea plane rating is another possibility. Other fun aviation related activities I would like to try are hang gliding, paragliding and skydiving.
It seems to me that personal aviation can be fully as challenging as professional flying. There will always be something new to learn and learning new things is what keeps us young. I have much to look forward to.
