    PIC?

    I've been sole manipulator of a few planes for which I was not rated/endorsed and therefore cannot claim PIC.

    I flew one that likely was the best example in existence. Would have bought it but it flew too much like the lancair for my low time wife. Fuel capacity was low - around 34 gal if I recall. It had a very effective belly board that could be used as a speed brake - wish I had one of those on the lancair. Its interior space was similar to my lancair.

    EDIT: I see models were on a lot of lists. I could add some PA28’s, the 140, 150, 180hp versions and that T-tail arrow. I’ve run a lot of the alphabet from G to P with 172’s. 2 or 3 182’s

    I got to sit in a few interesting ones including one of the RCAF Snowbirds Tutors. I let Snowbird 10 fly my plane, but he wasn't able to reciprocate.
    This is my wife sitting in the left seat (I was sitting in the right) of this one. The number of throttles is a hint:

    My logbook counts 42 different aircraft types, although there's nothing particularly interesting in there.

    The 185 on floats was probably the most fun so far. :)

    Depends how you want to count them.

    Some would treat every minor variant as a different type - a 172M as different than a 172P as different than a 172S, for example.
    On the opposite extreme, some would use the ICAO flight plan designations as the key, treating a 180 HP Mooney Ranger the same as a 280 HP Ovation.
    Others are somewhere in the middle. The straight leg, fixed pitch prop 172 models are all the same, but (along with those Mooneys) a 172RG and a HawkXP are different than a basic 172. And, of course, the middle group can have a variety: is a Hershey Bar Cherokee 140 the same as an Archer 180? To some yes, to some no.

    Based on somewhere in the middle group (all straight-leg, fixed pitch, 4 seat, normally aspirated PA28s are the same to me, but a 155 KT Turbo Arrow is different than a 135 KT normally aspirated one), there's about 40, all single engine, with primary manufacturers including Beech, ERCO, Cessna, Cirrus, Diamond, Mooney, Piper and Vans (a smattering of a few others).

    You say that, but if you learn to fly in a 150 and then land a 182 without instruction you'll prang the firewall when you land heavily on the front gear.
