    I will be in San Diego for a few days and am looking to log time in something unique. Any recommendations on a place to log some dual or a cool destination to see with an instructor?

    I dont plan to be there long enough for a checkout, but am happy to fly with a CFI learn something new, see a new place, or fly a unique plane.

    Thanks!

    Do you have DoD access? There is (used to be?) a flying club at the NAS that had a couple T-6s. Donno if they re still active or not...

    It’s a short hop to catalina and lots of hidden away shangrilas in the mountains southeast of LA.

    Good question. Perhaps an old taildragger would be fun

    For the most part you would probably have to be a member of Plus One Flyers in order to find and fly some unique stuff.

    Plus One has a huge fleet and offers more than your run of the mill decrepit 172 and PA28 sh#tboxes.. although there are plenty of those too, but last I checked there was a Maule, C180 tailwheel, Great Lakes bi-plane, Aeronca Champ, and others..

    The club has its pros and cons, but it's one of the better outfits IMHO..
