Alright, I've been doing some math, trying to figure out exactly how much it would cost roughly to get a private license to fly. It would be around 6k to 8k Including everything, cost to travel to the airport, renting the plane, doing the flying. It will be somewhere around 6 - 8k. Now the question I have to all of ET, who here has flown before and has a recreational or private license and any experiences and stories and advice. I really have been wanting to fly since I was a kid, and I find out how easy it could be, and I can now afford it with my trading, and I wouldn't mind renting a plane for about 200 a day and going out and about flying. I can't afford a plane just yet, nor do I think I'd ever have reason to buy one anytime soon, but I had been craving the action to fly. I'm thinking about getting the gift certificate to take a discovery lesson for about 60 dollars. Kinda scary though, but I'm willing to take the risk, it just seems like fun, and even I am playing Flight Simulator right now, just thinking about really doing it. So who's done it?
