Wow, I'm impress by your lists guys! As not commercial yet, my list is verry short:

C-150
C-172
Piper Aztec
___________

Someday, I have to add the DeHavilland Beaver to that list. I went fishing with this flying truck (as a passenger) and I was verry impress by the takeoff caracteristics.

Hey your list is already longer than the one of most pedestrians out there!
I am sure it'll grow....  ;)

Welcome to the forum Brian and tell us more about yourself!  |:)\ |:)\ |:)\
I give that landing a 9 . . . on the Richter scale.

So far, only the Cessna 150 (but 6 different 150's!)

The sky and land joined for one brief moment, then we flew - the ground a receding memory for just a little while.

Logbook time:

C-150M
C-152
C-172N
SNJ-5 (T-6 Texan--"J-bird" from Kevin Kegan's American Warbird--aerobatic time!)

Unlogged time:

PA-18-180 (Wheels, skis and floats)
PA-28-140
PA-32-300
C-46 Commando
C-150C (the Tundra Toy)
C-182
C-206
DHC-2 Beaver
GCBC Citabria

There are some other types I've flown (handled the controls for a minute) but those are the main ones.  I don't think the 30 seconds in the Herc count or the A-10 simulater :P



The average pilot, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring. These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

Wow, there are really a big collection of planes there you guys. I'm really beginning to think that planes are better than cars, and not just since there aren't tailgaters in the air!  |:)\

A Herc, that's not a bad machine, I actually saw one fly low some weeks ago, I think it was one of our owns (RDAF), and what kind of A-10 Sim are we talking, A-10 Tank Killer II on a good old Amiga 500 or a real pro one? :D

I love C-130s :)  Ridden all over Alaska in one years ago..how I got the 30 seconds of time :P  The ones based at Kulis in Anchorage seem to use my house as a checkpoint on the way in...they always make their turns right overhead!  Even more impressive when the C-17 does it!!  The A-10 Sim was at Elmendorf Air Force Base waaayyy back in the mid-eighties when I was a CAP Cadet.  Even let me shoot at a simulated tank with the GAU-8 :P

I get Herks shooting touch and go's almost every day at work... The NY Air Guard has a squadron outside of Albany that has C-130's on Skis for use supporting the Antarctic bases... They fly up to Burlington because the airspace isn't as busy at KBTV than it is around Albany. We call em' the "Ski-130's". We also get P-3 Orion's from Brunswick NAS in Maine as well as New Hampshire and Maine Guard KC-135 Tankers. Add in the Vermont Guard's F-16's flying 2 sorties a day (4-6 jets each flight) and I get a free airshow every day I work. Plus I get all kinds of cool stuff coming onto my ramp for customs (we shareramp space with US Customs) a few weeks ago I had one of only 3 still airworthy Lockheed model 10 Electra's (owned by Air Canada), I also get lots of nice homebuilts, new delivery Challenger Biz Jets, Global Expresses, CRJ's and Bell Helo's (Bell and Bombardier have plants in Montreal and we're the first Customs airport heading south into the US) My shop also does alot of custom avionics work (we did a one time STC to put an autopilot in an Aviat Huskey) and we are also a Cirrus service center. Keeps me busy all day. I wear out a set of sneakers every 2 months I think.

That's an impressive list of aircraft, I would love to get my hands on quite a few of those, especially the gliders!
