    I've got an itch I'd like to scratch without going to Arizona. By chance does someone with an L39 or similar toy want to trade hops? I've got an MX2-
    some pics I shot for WhirlWind http://lolachampcar.com/MX/WhirlWind/whirlwind_propeller.htm

    I'm in WPB, FL so anywhere in the SE would do the trick.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    There are several L-39 pilots in Florida, I think one may even be able to do a "training" flight. I don't know any of them myself, but you may contact someone at Code 1 Aviation - http://www.code1aviation.com/


    Otherwise I know Larry at Jetwarbird.com can do it, but he's in Santa Fe.

    I just looked on controller... why are L39s so cheap? Is it the $1000 an hour in fuel? lol
