Well, I am an aircraft owner again.. twice. Partner and I Bought a Cherokee 180 and a Quad City Challenger. Cherokee flies great and is IFR so that is nice. The Challenger is an absolute blast. I flew it 11 hours in two days. Has the 503 Rotax and burns 3 gallons of car gas per hour. I know some of you are down on experimentals but there are a bunch out there(and it has a chute). Super forgiving airplane and fun to fly in the hot weather without doors! If anybody is in the proximity of Pensacola let me know I would be glad to take you for a ride.
