Just wondering how some of you who fly managed to pay for your ppl or your comercial licence?
good christ it is not cheap to learn how to fly....ground school is nothing much but man the rental of the plane is astounding. Not to mention the cost of owning and maintining a airplane these days. My father owned 2 back in the 70's, I have no idea how he managed to fly and maint. a single and a twin. He wasn't rich or anything.
I have been looking into the prices of aircraft lately and there is nothing much under $50,000 US
I was thinking that it would be better to learn in something a little larger than a C-150/152. Maybe more like a 172 or even a 182. I have some experience in a C-182 that my father used to own but I haven't been up in a small plane in nearly 20 years
I was also wondering, once I have a ppl then how difficult is it to get a multi engine rating?
You see I plan on winning one of these damn lotteries soon and then I can afford to own a plane
