I've been lurking here since May of this year and thought I'd go ahead and
announce myself. I started flying in May and am now on my third dual xc.
Flying has always been a dream of mine and I decided to "make it happen"
since I'm getting much older (55, I don't plan on becoming a career pilot).
I have about 25 hours flying time. My greatest experience so far was my
solo flight. This newsgroup presents (for the most part) a lot of good and
useful information as well as experiences. Just thought I would say hello.

Not at all. I train out of Cullman, AL in a C-152. So far the training is
going good. I did have a time getting used to rudder work (and still do
occasionally) but its getting much better.

Welcome, we are glad to have you! You can be proud of your accomplishments
so far... its not a trivial excercise as I'm sure all the other pilots here
will tell you. As far as being too old, well you are never too old to persue
your dreams (unless you are dead!).

I started at age 9 with my first flight in a Cessna Aerobat (saved my
birthday money up and paid for the ride myself!). From then on there was a
37 year suspension in my lessions until age 46 when I could finally get
back to my first love. Then I kept on getting more ratings because I'm such
an aviation nut, and now I get to teach others how to fly.

There's nothing more rewarding, so all the best of luck and keep us imformed.

Hell, 55's not old!

Congratulations on getting your ppl. I hope to get mine before the year is
over. Maybe someone will give me a plane when I retire . We are not old,
just sexy senior citizens.

I don't know. I'm 52 and I seem to recall there being pteradactyls in the
pattern when I was learning how to fly.
