Exactly...again...and again....I ran into my flight instructor on Friday night. I actually haven't flown in quite a few years, but we were talking about costs of learning (I wanted to get back into it here soon and finish up). He said that one of the FBOs at the airport is now charging $85/hour wet for a 182. An instructor is running $30 or more I think. When I was flying last, I was doing it for $35/hour wet and the instructor cost me $20/hour. It made sense back then, now... sheesh.For those of you that feel sorry for me, let me know and I'll send you the "Mike's Wants to Fly" fund link so you can donate.Mike>>again?>>>Again? What'cha mean again? :( Its always raising :( ;)>>>:-beerchug>>>>http://www.avsim.com/vaworld/mikep/smallsig.gif
