Hello all, I have just recently received my private pilots license. I want to stay current and continue to get more flying hours, but I ran into a problem. The problem is everything is so expensive!! I want to know how I can fly for free someone recommend the civil air patrol. I don’t know much about it and would appreciate any information on it. Another person stated that I could hook up with an organization that flys children to hospitals and it’s a good way to save money and build up hours. I’m not sure but was looking for some advice on how to stay current with my PPL in the least expensive way possible. I am 28 years old and live in the area of Hartford, Connecticut and I make an average income. Thanks again for the advice look foward to hearing everyones advice.
