    They are all sleeping. This is a great idea, earn a pilot's license. Do those transfer from state to state? Easier to transfer than a driver's license?

    A pilots License is issued by the Federal Government and valid in all States. And valid in all or nearly all countries.

    I have a 16 year old grandson in our group that is out working today building a barn to make money . One of his agendas is to get money to take flying lessons with the end goal to buy his own airplane .

    We could find a licensed instructor in our area to give flying lessons but to find a old bush pilot to finish off his education would be the ultimate achievement as he hopes to eventually make occasional flights to hunting destinations in Alaska .

    Instrument rating...is that difficult to get?? Curious..as I was thinking ...depending where you were located..this could be important..

    I suppose for many of us flying visually ..by sight would be sufficiently difficult.


    Some areas of this country... ..the weather is capable of changing quite rapidly necessitating being instrument rated.

    Thinking that would be a very different kind of flying ..and including not panicking when you have no visual references. ....on flat land...but in mountains...you would really need to have your s--t together and not panic. Wow!!!

    That would be tough for many of us. Too visually oriented.

    My Mind just running along rabid trails.

    I have a Instrument Rating and am a Commercial Pilot. Flying on instruments is not hard.........it is simply about trust. You simply have to trust the instruments, and block out all body sensations. Especially FEAR. They will exist, but you simply have to override them, and trust the instruments or crash.

    Do they put bubble levels in the cockpits..like on my RV??? Just kidding..

    But on the serious side...

    I suspect that is something similar to what happened to JFK Junior....lost his references...did not trust his instruments.

    There are some U tube videos on the worlds most dangerous airports....and many of them seem to be in mountainous areas of the world. You really have to be on top of your game/skills to land there in good weather....Wow!!

    What must it be like when the visibility goes down???

    I was studying for my pilot's license before my eyesight went bad. I had soloed a single engine Cessna under VFR. I still remember dead reckoning and that is a skill that I still use even when traveling on foot. I am one of the weirdos who still prefers maps to GPS. LOL, I just remembered the three axis of movement pitch, yaw and roll. Amazing the stuff we retain even after multiple decades of non-use.
