    Seems like we always want what we don't have. I have my 2000 Cessna 172 and fly it quite a bit, but I really want to fly a trike for fun every now and then. Looking for someone willing to swap time. Any PPL holders interested in discussing?

    I always like watching the trikes/ultralights/paragliders playing out at Pleasant Valley. Pure cheap fun flying at it's finest. Often though about getting one just to prospect for gold with, but the range just isn't there, plus they get beat up by the wind pretty easily.

    Yea, gotta go pretty early in the morning to get away from the turbulence around this time of the year. Either way, I really want to fly a trike! My wife would kill me if I bought another toy.
