    People like you don't count. However, I will throw in once of those cheap CO detector thingies just to show I'm not a total dick. ;)

    I will make you a paper plane and Steingar can fold you a nice origami swan to go in it.

    can we get a little warning before you activate this offer in order to give those of us lowly non-owners a chance to buy something :)

    My offer will be reserved for current members and will be extended for 5 years.

    Still in fantasy land but I have to set some limits.

    Nice! Is that one plane per POA member, or is it good for multiple planes? If one, I'd go with a Glasair Two Weeks to Taxi Carbon Diesel Sportsman 2+2.

    I would buy a Global, hire pilots yet fly it when I wanted.
    Many rich dudes actually do this, but they are not truly qualified for such ops.

    Flying the airplane does NOT mean you are qualified to actually handle what may come up, but they would like to think so.

    And I'd use 75% of the left over money to fund ALS research, donate to a charity that helps veterans with PTSD, and have a stray cat rescue put in every state.
