Ok I fall into the category of stopping flying for a while and started back up again. I'm interested in finding out why people stopped and started back up again. My story. Stopped 10 + years ago. I stopped because I let my medical lapsed and keep telling myself I will get it renewed and kept putting it off. We decided to move from NV to AZ and with a new Job, new house and two young children flying got back burned. I always been active in RC flying during the Private pilot flying hiatus. I always had the burning desire to get back into the cockpit and I couldn't get rid of the obsession. I had slightly less than 100 hours in my log book which I lost. Startup again In April 2014. I couldn't take it anymore. Driving by a GA airport and a Major airport on the way to work everyday was driving me nuts. I had to get back into the cockpit. So after 11 hours CFI dual, current again. I'm back reliving the dream I had since childhood. Share your story if you like.
