Good people who love and fly airplanes. Active organization.
Commercial SEL/SES, Instrument, Commercial Hot Air Balloon
AOPA, Aero Club of New England, EAA, and whatever the Cherokee Pilots Association calls itself these days.
Have owned a 1966 Cherokee 180C (N9040J) for more than 35 years, based at MinuteMan. I also fly anything I can get my hands on for Atlantic Flyer review flights. I "collect N-numbers", and have flown more than 200 different fixed wing aircraft, plus helicopters, a sailplane, and even a gyrocopter.
No. I know better than to fly in anything I could build. (I fully respect the work of others who are more capable than I am of building a beautiful airplane, and might be willing to help if somebody wanted some assistance.)
I live to fly. Have owned a Piper Cherokee 180C for about 40 years, and I love to fly other airplanes (and helicopters and balloons) as well.
