Hello everyone!

I am currently an aerospace engineer for Honda Aircraft, and flying has always been a dream for me. I do not have my PPL yet as my situation (college, etc.) didn’t allow me to pursue it. Now that I am in the position for my dream to become a reality, I am looking for a potential aircraft to call my own. (Yes, I am aware of all of the costs and caveats and how renting/flying commercial would likely be cheaper.) Early-ish Bonanzas/Debonairs are currently high on my list of prospects.

I will spend most of my time lurking, reading, and absorbing from your wealth of knowledge and experience. If I have a question, you will see my come out of the woodwork. :)

Thanks, and I am sure I will enjoy my time here! :)

Welcome aboard!
Learn to fly first. Almost doesn’t matter in what type of aircraft. Most schools operate Cessna airplanes.
Then rent a few and make some trips.
The type of plane you will want depends on your budget and your mission.
90% of your missions.
Welcome!

Welcome Thomas. Get the PPL now before life gets in the way. And there is a ton of content on Bonanzas and Deb’s already on the site, you can search, read and lurk for months before you’re out of material. Enjoy.
