  4. Family pressures?

    The title of this is family pressures. I asked for pointers to overcoming objections and if this was normal. I didnt ask anyone if I had enough time or experience in the creation of this thread. If looking for past experiences is a rallying cry for my ego, then color me surprised. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    If I'm not confident in myself, then maybe I should go buy one of those airplanes with a parachute. That way I'm not always afraid of crashing my plane. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Are you going to really trying to run off the new guy? Looking back at my original question I was asking about conversations with the in-laws since I'm willing to admit I'm not a people person. All this other be afraid of flying shit doesn't really interest me any longer Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    It's really amazing how everyone approaches this conversation that, ironically was not even in the first question, from their own perspective and personal experiences / observations on others' experiences. I like to think of myself as pretty unique having started a multimillion-dollar business and having the decision skills required to maintain and thrive in that environment. I doubt there's many 33 year olds that could even rack their own car, let alone desire to do their own preventive maintenance. Or own a tool box worth more than both their and their wife's cars. I'd argue that an airplane is just a series of interrelated systems. If you're able to comprehend how those systems work in harmony, I would think that would make you a successful pilot. Weather just being one of those systems impacting flight. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Wow, an exceptional response. I took my check ride at like 64 hours, all of them in the 172 that I started training with. I'm just a little over 80 hours in my log book I believe. All of those in the 172. The most recent 8 hours have been simulated Hood work for instrument lessons. In fact I have not mentioned it yet, my Mooney still isn't flying because of the avionics upgrade. I was actually planning on renting the 172 for this cross country. And you're exactly right, my mother-in-law's coming to our house in January and she does want to fly with me. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Ive already decided we will be doing one of the new digital autopilots at next annual. Hoping my wife doesn't start getting suspicious when annuals are not a small affair like some others have told us about. Will be hard to hold off on glass on the left not knowing if this is our forever plane or not.

    Good catch. Yes, they are divorced. The MIL just lost her 2nd husband (more like a father for my wife) within the last 12 months, actually closing in on the anniversary. He used to be A LOT like me with our free spirits and no craps given attitude. That counter balanced and chilled MIL out decently. My wife suggested that now that she doesnt have that counter balance, she will be less restrained in her fears. I've devided once my mooney is done with the new avionics, ill take this trip solo just so I can see what i don't yet know. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
