Anyone else love to fly?

Just curious if there's anyone with a pilots licence on here...

I used to, got my rec. licence when I was 16 but due to some health issues (injury from accident in highscool) couldn't pass a physical and had to let it go.

Did about 50 hours in a Cessna 150 (that has since been crashed ), then moved up to a Cessna 172 for the rest of my flying "life".

I have recovered enough that I could fly again, and I've been thinking of getting going again, just wondering if anyone else here shares a love for flying?

(Not the actual aircraft I was in...)

I hate to say, I've never been on an airplane. Sounds like fun though

Once is all it takes to get you hooked

My parents took me for my first flight when I was 14 and I was hooked right away. I will try and dig up the pics, but I still remember pretty much every detail of it.

Been kinda thinking of a kit plane (Vans RV-7 to be specific). They say you can do it for ~$25,000. Spread out over the 3-5 years it would probably take, that is not bad at all! And when its done you've got a fun, fast little plane that is aerobatics friendly!
