One week ago, I bought an airplane. I own an airplane. An airplane! I’m still letting that reality settle in. I’ve been a certificated pilot now for four years, but this is the first time I have an aircraft with my name on the title.
She’s a 2003 Cessna 172S with 3000 hours on the clock. As small aircraft go, that’s pretty new. N192SP is printed on the side. White and with red striping, it’s a pretty standard looking 172.
I’ll post more details later, but for right now, I just want to get this story started with some thanks going out:
Terry McGee at McGee Aviation for brokering this deal for me.
Walt Gyger at Trade Winds Aviation for hosting the aircraft on their line.
John Heldt, also of Trade Winds, for helping me ferry the plane home.
And, of course, my wife, Sarah, for allowing me the opportunity to pursue this passion.
