@IrelandAviation that’s a tough one. Personally I haven’t experience really anything bad happening. I have landed on a 3700X75 foot runway with gusting 25 knot crosswind so that was fun. Another time we just recent when I was taking a friend down to Little Rock and the engine backfired.
@Jeff_A my advice is to just go for it. It’s so worth it. It is a lot of money (7-10K) but the things you can do with an airplane is amazing. I’ve picked up friends from college to going out of state and back just to eat for the day.
@BombardierQ400 It took me almost four years. I started when I was 14 and in high school. At the time my parents only wanted me to fly twice a month which caused me to repeat a lot of things… but the older I got the more I flew and the more I progressed. On top of that, I had some setbacks that I couldn’t control like the person I rent from selling two of the three planes I did fly and my instructor getting in a bad wreck. It doesn’t usually take that long if you fly once a week though
