In the 140s.

My buddy is loaded and wants to get checked out in the 182...so I may do that and split some time with him.

Gets me current in the G1000 too...would be fun I guess.

Can't beat 65$/hr split vs 90$/hr solo for the 172SP.

gkrangers, i flew to statesville, NC yesterday. 8.3, and like 4 of it was in actual, including the approach into SVH. it was the first time i shot an approach in actual (DME 7 arc to VOR 10 approach). keep trying to get in the clouds, though. it's good practice, just stay away from the towering cumulonimbus!

we need to start flying more together. this is getting too pricy. quit going to class, will ya?!? crikey...

The 182 is nice. I am refurbishing a D-model right now so I can use it after I get my PPL.

Just wait until you go thru that embedded level 4 or 5 " accidentally". You'll be diverting the rest of your career!

Heh, can't wait...

I doubt the precip was even reaching the ground in that "cell" yesterday, and it still bounced me pretty good. Couldn't imagine a real thunderstorm.

no, it was solo, and the reason i left at 2:30 was so that i could be back in time for the game that was still on when i left. i didn't find out until i landed at 7 that the game was cancelled, though flying in i had a sneaking suspicion b/c of the weather. i work til 1:30 tomorrow. when are you free?
