Hi I'm Todd. I'm just getting started with learning to fly. I want my own ride but am having a rough time deciding on the best purchase for me. This looked like the place to get educated.

Hi, my Name is Tom, I joined to learn more about 172's. I am not a pilot, but my 17 year old son is and we are looking into a potential purchase. We have friends that own 150's, 172's, Travel Air, Skynight, and even a YAK 52. I have read a lot of different threads and will always use the search feature to try to find an answer before I post a question. Thank you all for allowing me to join, oh and the Abex Jet name is the name my son came up for his airline project.

Welcome to the Forum, Tom. You will find a wealth of knowledge here and plenty of opportunity to learn about 172s and other types as well. Additionally you will find that this is a pretty darn nice group of folks that are down to earth. Search the prior posts and I doubt that you'll run out of reading material for some time to come.

P.S. It is great that you are doing this with your son. I am a second generation pilot and some of the happiest times of my life were spent flying with my Dad and hanging around airplanes with him.

Hi - I'm sitting on a logbook busting with 15 hours in a C152 out of 1C5 - under the class B airspace at O'Hare. That was 25 years ago. Finally have the time and means again to pursue flying. Your group looks like a great community. Glad to be a part.

Hi 172 Forum Members

I am a very senior technologically challenged macadamia nut and cattle farmer from Australia where I garage my 56 C172 and 48 C140 on the farm.

I love flying in this best part of Australia and my second love is visiting the USA around Oshkosh time.

I would enjoy meeting any of you on my next trip to the USA. I might get there this year depending on the sick Aussie dollar.

Thanks

My name is Paul, I own Big River Aviation at St.Louis Regional airport. I bought a C 172F for our flight school last week in Sacramento. I had a great cross country flight to Saint Louis. I joined this group to stay in touch with the 172 community and the available STC's for our plane. Thank you for accepting me in your forum

Hello Gr8skape! And welcome to the Forum! Getting back into flying will be fantastic!!

I am based at 05C and am frequently making breakfast or lunch flights into 1C5. Charlie's is real conveniently located.

Gotta like the all new runway / taxiways there...what a facelift!!

Stay in touch and I'll see you there or @ 05C (we gotta real Mexican cafe in the FBO for tasty lunches) someday soon.
