2021 Aviation Update

Its that time again where I look back on my prior year’s aviation activities and typically get disappointed that I’m not flying more.  As I look back at 2021 though I’m just happy that I had the ability to fly even though I didn’t get the amount of hours I feel I should be getting.  […]

2020 Aviation Update

I didn’t do this update timely for 2020 but for the sake of tracking I finally put it together at the end of 2021.  I’m not going to add a lot of details other than the data here. Here is a summary of 2020: 2020 Hours: 49.9 Total Hours: 1106.6 2020 Approximate Mileage: 4,840 miles. […]

2019 Aviation Update

I thought I would complete my aviation update on time this year as last year’s wasn’t done until late March.  I’m very happy to report that I logged hours in every month of 2019 except for January.  The plane was in annual and Michigan weather isn’t conducive to much flying in January anyway.  I broke […]

2018 Aviation Update

I’m long overdue for putting out my annual summary of all my prior year’s flights.   I’m actually very discouraged that I didn’t fly more than 50 hours in 2018.    The past 4 years in a row have only been about half as much as I would consider a sufficient amount of flying to maintain […]

2017 Aviation Update

I’m over a month behind in putting out my annual summary of all my prior year’s flights.   As with the past couple of years I did not fly as much as I would have liked to have flown.  The past 3 years in a row have only been about half as much as I would […]

2016 Aviation Update

I usually like the annual event where I review my year in aviation and reminisce on the flights that I had.  This year there aren’t as many memories and hours as I would have liked.  There are a lot of excuses for that.  For one, the year started out challenging with still working out issues […]

2015 Aviation Update

I love looking back on all of my flights from the year and summarizing them for everyone to review.  I was actually surprised that I flew as much as I did this year when I summed up all of my flights.  We had a couple of big trips and really were able to use the […]

2014 Aviation Update

This year my flying was significantly different than in the prior couple of years.  In retrospect there are a few reasons for that.  For one, we moved to Virginia and many of my flights have been local or to closer airports getting familiar with the area.  Secondly, I sold N2893Z and purchased a new airplane this […]

2013 Aviation Update

I look forward to this point every year where I can look back on the flying that I did throughout the year.  It is fun to look in the logbook, remember the adventures and tally up all the hours I flew.  I was again fortunate enough to be able to exceed my yearly goal of […]

Oshkosh – EAA Airventure 2013

If I had to sum it up in one word it would be…….”WOW!”  I finally made the journey to the yearly gathering of pilots and aviation enthusiasts to Oshkosh, Wisconsin for EAA AirVenture!  For many years it has been something that I have thought that I would someday do but now that I live only […]
