Its been a longggggg time since ive been here
hey everyone, hows it popping.
At the moment i’m 15, a total of 22 hours in the air. Yesterday, my friends proposed an idea that I quite liked, but have yet to figure out the logistics of.
The idea was that when I get my PPL (when im 17) is that me and two other friends fly somewhere in the country (US), tie down the plane, stay the night somewhere, and fly back in the morning. My flight school offers a rental service with quite a sexy C182Q, so I proposed we save up and take that. My question was, do aircraft renal services usually charge per hours in the air or hours away from the FBO or home airport? I live in Colorado (home airport is KLMO), so if they wanted to go somewhere west, do you think the Skylane could get over the mountains fine? (ETOW of 2550 lbs)
thanks for the help :)
