I’ve been lurking on the forums for most of today and finally decided it was time to register an account and ask some questions…
I have been interested in getting my private pilot’s license now since I think I was about 12 (I’m 26), but circumstances were just never right for it to happen. Circumstances are looking more in my favor in the next 6 months to a year to have the money and time to pursue the dream…
I have some questions that you guys can answer:
How difficult was it to get your license (Just private, not instrument, commercial, etc)? Was it easier or harder than you expected?
How often do you fly? Do you just fly around locally or do you go long distances?
I have a brother that is an avid skydiver, and I’ve jumped once myself. What licenses would you need to be able to fly a King Air 90 jump plane?
If you have ever played any of the MS Flight Simulator series, how accurate would you say the basic flight dynamics, instruments, ATC, and such are compared to real life?
Finally, if any of you live in Utah, would anybody be willing to take me on a demo flight?
