Do you remember the aircraft that took you up for your very first ride? Comment below what aircraft is was.
In 1962 (age 14) I hitchhiked out to the Clinton Municipal Airport (Iowa) and paid $3.00 for a ride over the city in a 1962 Piper Colt. Right after I walked down to the maintenance hanger an got a ride in a 1962 Aztec (short nose with N # ending in 03P). Been hooked ever since.
Taylorcraft. Very fun!
My first flight was in a RCAF Expeditor (Military version of the Beech 18). I was 14 years old and attending RCAF Air Cadet camp at the RCAF base in Abbotsford, BC, Canada. I sat in the co-pilots seat and was allowed to fly the plane for about 20 minutes.
I forgot to mention that it cost the tremendous sum (to me) of 50 cents!!
My first was about 1936, when I was 10. It was a Stinson Trimotor! I sat on the left side in a wicker seat and looked over everything! When we landed, I made a funny mistake. I wanted to see the wheel touch the ground as we landed, and rested my chin on the window sill. BAD MOVE!! It wasn't his best landing and I got my chin bashed pretty solidly!
