    Hey everyone! After 14 years owning a Cherokee 180, I decided to shake things up a bit and get my tailwheel. Did my endorsement in a Husky, and although I found it challenging, Iíve flown a lot of aircraft types and knew I could enjoy this type of flying for a long long time. So, I sold the cherokee 180 and picked up a Legend Super Cub! Spent another 5 straight hours flying patterns, (the neighbors probably werenít too pleased) and am ready for wherever my new baby wants to take me! Click image for larger version.

    Not much to tell really. Was a long time armed security officer for some nuclear power plants and decided to change careers. A life long aviation fanatic, and wanted to be a pilot since I was a little kid, so I went for that. Bought a Cherokee 180 and used it to get my PPL, then did Private, Instrument, and commercial in Helicopters, and was just starting CFI and life had changed quite a bit. Now with Two kids (both with autism), and daycare costing us about $30K a year, my wife and I made the decision to have a full time parent at home.. Her career was far more lucrative, so I had to put mine "on hold". (no more helicopter career for me...) Luckily, She still lets me fly for fun. As I said, after 14 years owning the Cherokee 180, I was looking for a little change so we got rid of the Cherokee and picked up something a little more fun! Currently own this cub and an Evolution trikes Revolt, which I may end up selling. The weather where I live, and my schedule with the kids doesn't lend itself well to a whole lot of Trike flying, but I can fly the cub in any conditions I could have flown the Cherokee...
