  1. Two experiences led to my interest in aviation. My family has a camp in the north woods of Ontario. The best way in is by float plane, and one of my fondest childhood memories was the last leg of our trip when we would pile all of our supplies into a Beaver. The pilot of that plane - Mel - was a childhood hero of mine. Fast forward to age 10. My cousin graduated from the Naval Academy. My jaw dropped when the Blue Angels' A-4 jets tore a hole in the air over the grandstands. That was it for me!!
  2. Thank you everyone for the replies - the willingness to share your accumulated knowledge on this forum is very much appreciated. I've read through your replies several times. I took yesterday off work and spent the day bouncing around in a 172. Flew KSDL to KSEZ to 40G to KINW to KPAN back to KSDL.

I'll fly home commercial SLC to PHX after a week or so to check in at the office for a day or two. If I have a plane, I'll fly back solo. Another one or two round trips by me solo (or with the family and a very light baggage load) before I
  4. Thanks Mlm20C & RobertGary1. Anyone have a good experience with a particular broker?
  5. Greetings everyone. This is my first post, so I apologize if this has been a topic that has been beaten to death. I recently returned to flying after a 10 year hiatus. I am instrument rated with about 550 hours of time. 400 hours of that time was in a Diamond DA-40 I owned back when I was flying regularly. I am looking for an aircraft that can safely transport my wife and our two young children from Phoenix, AZ primarily to destinations across the West and Southwest (including around and over the Rockies and Sierra) ranging from 250 to 500 nm. I weigh about 180 lbs, wife is about 14
