I earned my Private Pilot's license in September 2006 after seven months of training. I belong to The Joplin Flyers flying club. At this time we have two aircraft, a 1978 Piper Archer II (N2912M) and a 1966 Piper Cherokee 180 (N9203J). My flight training and Private Pilot certificate were earned in our previous plane of many years, a 1966 Piper Cherokee 140 (N4694R).
My favorite flying is done simply to enjoy flying. Aviation is a true tool for transportation, but I don't really use it that way most of the time. One of these days, I'd really like to get my tailwheel rating and fly a Piper Cub.
