Glory Days of piling on the Hobbs hours on N183CF

It was my Favorite Rental Plane out of all the various types and of the 2 dozen different “Cherokees” I’ve flown. This was the main “perk” working for Piper Aircraft Pre Ressession

one catalyst that got me interested in Aviation in the first place is I grew up 2 miles away from Centennial Airport in Colorado, it’s the 2nd busiest General Aviation Airport in the country right behind Van Nuys.

One of my Favorite vintage planes Ive Flown Stinson Reliant N1942A, Based at the Tillamook Air Museum in Oregon OR till the mid 2000’s Was owned and Operated by a Very Nice Man named Larry who sadly passed away a few years ago. Once the plane was in climb out he said the plane is yours and I got to fly it at least 3 different times over the years, including the only time I was able to fly My Sister before her passing. it may not be the most fuel efferent bird but full tanks, full seats, full Americans, no brainer.
