    in one of those little planes?

    did you need to take out extra insurance?

    just thinking cos if one of us does flying and dies, our regular insurance surely won't cover us for doing something so stupid.

    But more to the point, any one done flying lessons?

    I wanted to be a pilot a long time ago. One year my wife bought me a flying lesson for my birthday. It was a lot of fun. They let you (briefly) take the controls. No extra insurance required.

    A buddy of mine owns his own small plane. I've gone up flying with him a bunch, and he's let me fly a bit as well.

    Personally, I like jumping out of them more than flying them.

    I'm not a fan of big planes but the little ones make more sense, sounds like a blast

    Somewhat. I got onto a prop plane and the fattest dude, last to enter, sat right next to me, and a little over too.

    I felt like I learned something over those forty or so minutes. Scoliosis, maybe...

    Flying a plane as a hobby, no not that interested. As a job yes I've always thought of becoming a pilot.

    Honestly, I'd just love to sky dive one time to see how that feels. Must be an incredible adrenaline rush.

    I bought my husband a flying lesson for our first Christmas and did it in Dublin with a bunch of mates. He loved it.

    I guess it's like riding a bike x100.
    for example, you can't feel the speed, the rush as sharply riding a BMW coupe as when riding a Harley.

    No, but my old man brought me on one of his flying lessons back in the day. Was pretty legit. And probably a skill worth knowing for SHTF.

    I did a few virtual flying sessions. Not quite the same but no risk either.

    No, I've tried a few times though to see if other people wanted to try it. Normally by hanging them over balconies. None fancied trying to fly though .
