I will never recall all the planes I have flown. Most single engine Cessna's and Piper's, a few multi engine aircraft. I currently own a Cessna 172. I can say that I have flown in all 50 states in the US and most of Canada.

All this is over a 32 year period.

For the last 32 years or so, a desk.


Back then a T-32, a T-2 and some unauthorized time in a F-4.

Occasionally an underpowered C-172L and an Ercoupe; not enough to be as proficient as I'd like. Learned in a PA-28-140 Cherokee Cruiser as a senior in high school, and mostly Warriors, Archers, a Tomahawk and C-150/152/172 until I started flying for the Air Force. And about 25 hours in the late 80s in an Arrow II that belonged to the Barksdale Aero Club when I was an A-10 pilot, had to drive 2 hours north to get to it, but that $24/hour dry tach rate... wish those days were still here.


When I was at Luke AFB in the 90s I flew with a friend's dad who had a couple T-34As with upgraded engines, nice aircraft.

Due to a medical issue that made securing a medical certificate a real chore, I sold my last plane 20 years ago and quit flying, but most of my last 1500 hours were in a '62 Comanche 250. That was one sweet plane. It sported new, modern Imron paint, a new interior and a new IFR panel with an S-Tec-60 autopilot. I flew it all over the U.S., from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from Texas to Alaska plus many points in between. I've also flown dozens of Piper and Cessna singles and a handful of light twins.

For a few years I had an arrangement with the local FBO to fly Part 135 flights for them on a part-time basis. They'd call me if they needed another pilot, and if I wasn't busy with something else I'd fly the charter.

Sluggo....I thought you flew BUFF's too...no?

Hmm.....there was one guy here, I thought it was you, commented on a pic I posted of a B52 here in Windsor for an airshow a few years ago.

No BUFFs. Sat in a B-1 cockpit once at an airshow, that's the closest I ever came to flying a bomber. A-10s, OV-10s and F-16s. And 1.3 hours in the back seat of a CF-18.

Until very recently I flew a Mooney 201. I still own half of it but a medical issue would make renewing my medical too difficult for me to pursue. Anyone interested in buying 1/2 share in a Mooney?

I've flown a variety of single engine planes: learned in a Cessna 172 but have also flown a 152, 182, 172RG, 182RG, 177RG Archer, Arrow, Tiger, Saratoga, Bonanza F33A. I even have some time in a Columbia, a Diamond DA20, a Pitts, and a Skybolt, as well as 3/10ths LTA time in a balloon. I'm sure I've missed a few.

Yep I did miss one: have some time in a Beech T-34A. Not just any T-34A, but the T-34A: N140SW. That's the one that grounded the fleet less than a year after I flew it.
