Airplanes flown include warriors/cadets, arrows, 150s, 172s, seminoles, a navajo, a citabria, and an L-39.

Favorite thing about flying:
The view.

Financial sacrifices for a few years.

No regrets!
Advice to aspiring pilots:
Think outside the box -- and take any advice with a grain of salt, the ones above you aren't always right (in some cases, they're never right, they just say it with confidence!)
Problems encounterd along the way:
I lost motivation during CFI -- Orlando FSDO can sure squeeze the fun out of flying!
