Who is a pilot?

Noticed quite a few professional and recreational pilots on this board.

I still have to take my check ride, should be done in the next month.

Been spending most of my time in c172, c182, and a 46' champ.

With a name like TACA A320 I would think you had an ATP.

Yep. PPL SEL MEL.

Got too caught up in fucking around flying building time, the flight school went out of business before I could get Instrument/Commercial.

I run one of the largest Avionics shops on the west coast of FL, one of the largest Garmin panel mount dealers in the country.

How much does a top of the line GPS system cost that you would sell?

Need specifics.
What do you have, what do you want, what do you want it installed in.

I was a pilot, flew 172N but quit due to my color blindness and not being able to obtain my IFR rating. No point in making A career out of it . I haven't flown for 5 years now but I will again soon . I am a non-destructive inspector here in Canada and make waaaaaay more money than I would have as a pilot anyway. Still aviation is in my blood and still look up the sky with such intensity and joy hoping that I'll be able to buy a 152 soon and just fly as a hobby no greater feeling than flying at 10,000 feet with such grace and serenity

The TACA A320 screen name is to not let me forget about my dream hahahaha

What are you guys flying?? I fly an owner around in his Piper Chieftain and am finishing my training in a C-182 and Piper Aztec. My dad is an ATP and CFI and he's flying a chieftain and a citation as well.

King Air 350 and Pilatus PC-12NG for a corporation in Denver. I see you're in CHS. I used to fly for US Airways Express in and out of there and always enjoyed watching you guys do landing practice on 21/3, especially with when you did max perf. ones and used the reverse thrust to backup so you could turn off at Foxtrot. What an awesome aircraft!

Have a lot of money, then head on down to your local FBO.

I haven't gotten a chance to do that yet. I'm in between graduating pilot training and getting qual'd on the 17 in Oklahoma. But I'll be sure to keep it in mind when I arrive.

Nice. Congrats! Getting through UPT is a milestone for sure. Are you active or reserve? Have you spent much time in Charleston? It's definitely one of my favorite towns in the south.
