Here ya go Mario! Takes care of the worn seats and visibility issues.
Haha I was really hoping for info on where buy new seats or reupholstered
Oh. Why didn't you say so. Maybe I can help you.
I don't know.
Ok thanks anyway I will keep looking
Mario, you have posted your inquiry in the middle of a thread...that's a party foul. Consider starting your own thread on the proper forum and I'll bet you get some answers. I'd start by looking on Barnstormers.com or at one of the larger aircraft salvage yards...Wentworth is the only one I know off the top my my head. http://www.wentworthaircraft.com/
Thank you sorry about the thread I am new to this and thanks for the info.
Now my list:
Epic LT or the certified version
Beaver on floats
Waco biplane...older version...UPF-7 or UBF-2
King Air 350-ER
Don't sweat it...welcome to POA.
1) Stock P-51D
2) Dago Red, Strega or Voodoo
3) Sea Fury
5) Super Cub/Carbon Cub
6) some form of single-pilot business jet
7) Waco of some sort
8) T-6 (at least long enough to get comfortable before the Mustang/Sea Fury)
9) Extra 300 or 330
10) Cessna 195
2. Citation Mustang
6. Super Cub
9. Air Cam
10. Pitts S-1T
I regret to mention that I've had the opportunity to fly only one of the above. All of my flying has been in much more mundane aircraft, but someday....
That I can afford? Or just dreaming for a potential lottery win?
The lottery list would include more Jet-A burning planes; PC-12, King Air 200, King Air 90, Piaggo, CJ4.
If I have to foot the bill, much more along the lines of what I've been flying; SR22, SR22T, B-58P, C-310, Mako, RV-10.
Well, heck. If we’re talking lottery list:
So how was the F-86 to fly? Lol
Never flew the F-86--it's one that I dream of flying one day.
Sad but I can't really think of 10... my progression would probably be
1.) PA-28-181, late 80s model with some nice upgrades like a 650, don't need any real glass though. Would be an okay cross country plane and a cheap way to build time
2.) SR20, would be a nice comfortable upgrade from the Archer, with some speed advantage.. without too much of a leap to turbos, FIKI, etc. and a fairly mild learning/adjustment curve
3.) Diamond DA62. I would skip the SR22 altogether and go for the twin. The DA62 has FIKI, has redundancy of a second engine, is modern and comfortable (like a Cirrus), and doesn't rely on some rube goldberg ancient avgas engine tech, but would be running JETA with FADEC engines, and give me a lot of payload options depending on fuel load, etc. For the typical 3 hr mission I could easily load up a DA62
But then I have to ask myself... if I can afford a new DA62, and not just afford to buy, but actually own, operate, and maintain it, then why not stretch the budget a little and just get a TBM.. or even something like a Mustang? The only reason to stay non turbine would be to fly into some smaller airports? I don't think I've ever seen a turbine at Catalina or Big Bear or Montauk for example (but I'm probably wrong)

Cessna 182 skyline with Robertson and wingtips for stol
any of the northamerican t6 snj etc
lancair ivp and evolution
I would have liked to have flown one of those. I've heard nice things about their handling and performance.
(This one a later Aero Commander 200D):
F33 with 550
Top 10?? Not sure I'm even familiar with that many models that I'd have on my list of 'planes to own'.. Here's the ones I know I like, for different reasons:
Pitts Special (The first three are starting a trend, aren't they...)
Cessna 310 (Because they can't all be bi-planes and occasionally need to be practical)
T-38 Talon (Because it's a jet.)
Acrostar BD-5J (Because it's a jet and was in a James Bond movie.)
...And I don't have 4 more.. Listing the SR-71 would be gratuitous as well as ridiculous.
I'm barely at 40 hours and only time in 1 type but If I won the lottery tomorrow I would look at two planes. Carbon Cub XCub for fun, and a TBM 930 or Cessna Denali for travel. Hell maybe a Cirrus Jet. Something to play around with locally and in the dirt, and something that could haul me and 5 friends to Vegas regularly
Don’t know if I can get to ten
L19 Bird Dog
For some reason I would like to try the M22 Mustang. Just to see how it flies!
Turbine p baron
Cessna Cardinal RG
Cessna 210 (P or Silver Eagle preferably)
MU-2 (with a lot of recurrent training)
Wow, the list is shorter than I expected.
Someone else is footing the bills?
F-104G or S
Piaggio P.180 Avanti II
Globe Swift with mods of my choice
Taylorcraft BC-12D with a starter and 85 hp
Aeronca 7AC same as above
Luscombe or PA-11 on floats
Chances are, at my age, I should probably fly the F-104 last. It may be my only flight in it.
Cessna 210 !
Cessna 206 on retractable gear floats
Beaver on floats
Cessana 150 aerobat with a taildragger mod
I'm supposed to narrow it down to 10? Not possible.
would love to have something like an amphib 180 or a lake
a turbo twin or a Malibu
an ultralite trike
Goose, mallard or Catalina
Cessna 208 w/Garrett conversion on amphib floats
King Air 300-LW or if not that, then maybe a King Air 250
Challenger 300 or maybe 350
T38 or F5B
Carbon 180 HP Cub ( maybe on floats)
Cessna 182 (1975-1985)
UH-1H or maybe a Bell 205 (Yeah, I know---not an airplane, but I want one!)
OH...and I will hafta win the million dollar lottery to afford ANY of those dream machines and a BAZILLION dollar lottery to afford all of them!!
Not sure which ones I'd want to actually own, but here's a list of some of the ones I'd most like to fly.
1. Quickie Q1 (I'd settle for a ride in a Q2 or Q200)
2. Mooney M18 Mite
3. McCulloch J-2
4. Mini Imp
5. BV-141 (the only warbird to make my list)
6. Taylor Coot (I'd settle for a Seabee or a Lake Amphibian)
7. VariViggen (I'd settle for a ride in a VariEze or Long-EZ, but the Viggen is just so much cooler)
8. Rutan Boomerang
9. Transavia PL-12 Airtruk
10. Ercoupe (without rudder pedals)
There was one based in Albany, NY that I used to watch fly overhead fairly frequently. They look like beautiful planes. I'd settle for just getting to walk inside one.
Transavia PL-12 Airtruk
You say that now...
- Cessna 414
- Cessna 310
- Piper Aztec
- Piper Cub
- Mitsubishi MU-2
- Piper Cheyenne 400LS
- Lockheed JetStar
- Any other old tail dragger
These I’d like to fly. For some, maybe join CAF someday, when kidlets have left the nest:
T6 / SNJ
Some to own - now, soon, someday:
Super Decathlon (got this one)
Beaver, Otter, or Super Cub *on floats*
Pilatus PC12 (or similar)
I flew J-2s when they first came out. Air Facts recently published my article on the subject:
I'd split one with you but we live on opposite coasts!
