@Laurens is not a pilot, but knows quite a bit and can provide good insight.

Misha is not a pilot.

I fly in the real world. Best part is takeoff in my opinion. I just love the feel of lifting off the runway and watching the ground below separate from me as I ascend.

I’ll start taking flight classes in summer 2016.

@Heavydriver flys the triple seven.

@Chris_Keller and another whom I don’t think I can mention…

Is the question about current, or experience, or both. If current NO. If experiential YES.

correct sir… I am a helicopter pilot. it was a fun and exciting challenge… just be prepared to spend quite a bit more for a license than for fixed wing. I’m currently scoping out some fixed wing lessons so I can get my rating for those also.
