Always want to own an airplane. First secured finance and got my medical. Set up a schedule to learn and finally got my PP certificate at the end of Aug. Very excited. Started looking online and checking out some airplanes offline at local airports. This afternoon, when driving away from my local airport after meeting with a seller. Suddenly, I realized how little I know about what it takes to take care of the airplane. I had almost zero mechanical experience, except changing oil for my car, had no idea about all sorts of scheduled maintenance. I don't even know the proper name of different parts. And I will need to rent either a hangar or tie-down. When I was learning, the flight school took care of those airplanes. Soon, I will have to be the one ... taking care of my plane. I felt like expecting my first child! Lots of anxiety. Am I the only one? I would like to ask my fellow airmen here how you cope with issues like what helped you to reduce the anxiety and increase your preparedness? Who did you have to make friends with? What kind of professional assistance you have to get? Where did you find those resources? Thank you in advance!
