    I ain't going up in that thing. :no_text11:


    My cousin has one of those umm.."Piper Cubs", Thing is from the 60s..yellow?

    I don't want no part of that, you ain't gettin' me up in it. :eusa_snooty:

    Somehow, he takes off and lands on his daddy's land. The thing is small.

    Looks like one person would be quite enough.

    Flight in a small aircraft is a great feeling and experience.

    Congrats! I love the Cherokee! I flew one for more than a few years back in the 1970's early 80's. Great little bird!

    Opinions are subjective.

    I might go 170 mph on a bike, I ain't doing that.

    He asked me: "Wanna go up"? I'm like.."Isn't it about shootin' time?

    You should have done your flying in the Bay Area out of Buchanan Field up in Concord. Much nicer environment.

    I'm thinking a helicopter would be a great way to get around in Appalachia.

    Instead of going up, down, and around the mountain...straight line! :eek:

    They're not in this little bitty airplane, though. That's a whole different animal.

    When you have something you know, vs. something that's ancient and looks hokey.

    Or the corollary, "how do you build a small fortune in the aviation industry? Start with a large one!"
