A picture of a
picture, the plane didn't have that mottled surface finish.
While living in
San Luis Obispo in 1979, working for Craig Vetter, I got my pilot's
license. I bought a Cessna 150 and owned it for several years. My flying
instructor and I bought a Citabria to rent out. Citabria is airbatic
spelled backwards. It is a tail wheel plane and was really fun to fly.
It was designed for fancy flying and not my interest. It was popular and
was rented out a lot.
ran a flying service and I bought him a plane to lease out. Both served
as a nice tax write-off. All three planes served to keep me employed, by
necessity. Finally, reality set in and my leisure time was more important
than these toys. By 1988 I had sold them.
It was my
pleasure to fly the 150 over half way across the USA on two occasions. My
Fort Bidwell property had a long strip only 1/2 mile away. If I ever fly
again I think it will be with a homebuilt one.
I have few
pictures of my flying time. They will be added as I find them.
