Down the road a piece...

Hmm. Cheaper than I thought.

On the average, you can expect to invest about $6,500 (C-172SP) for your private pilot certificate. If you were to calculate your costs based only on the minimum hours you will need, that cost is about $5,500. The actual cost depends on how much time you can commit to your training and on whether you can take advantage of discounts and training packages.

One of these days.

Hey, I think that's the same outfit where we went to an orientation a year or two ago ... DH is interested in getting his license eventually. We got to test-drive the flight simulator, which made me sick and queasy for the rest of the day. ;) Looks like fun!

Yeah, someday. The guy who had to crash with us during Iniki (see here) regularly flew between Oahu and Kauai where he lived; Iniki did bad things to his plane and worse things to his house. He's retired military and about 75, so age doesn't seem to be a prohibitive issue.
