Pilots and Aviation-Fans wanted

Dear OMs,

there are a lot of Pilots and aviation interested people on HamSphere, I know it.
And we had this topic very often on the bands. As an old Pilot I love to talk about aviation sometimes, but there is a risk to bore other operators which are not familiar with this theme.

So here comes my new idea: To avoid this problem and "collect" all the interested people - how do you think about a new "Aviation - Net" on HamShere?
Maybe one day in a month and e.g. on 20 meters?
I would suggest to make it on HS 3.0 to make sure that all aviation enthusiasts can follow the Net.

What's your opinion?

Ok, 248 Hits on the thread .... but there is still no reply and maybe no interest, so it seems this idea has died. :-(

I hope it has not died yet. About the only thing in the world that could pry me away from the radio would be a chance to go flying!
I only have about 25 hours as a student in a Cessna 152 and a little bit in Pipers.
So I hope this may work. I spend time on You tube watching aviation videos to satisfy my cravings because it's just too expensive these days.

Hi,

thank yo very much for your answer. :-)
Oh yes, sadly it is very expensive - and by saying this in the USA (where private-flying is more "normal" and cheaper than here), what should I say in Germany? :-(

One hour in only a Cessna 150/152 takes (in my area) about 220,- US $ and more in the meantime! And a Piper Archer about 300,- Euros....
And in additional all other costs, tax, medicals, charts and so on. So that's not longer possible.

But there is a little chance for you: A very nice, but much cheaper Aircraft is the european Diamond Katana (from Austria)! It's modern, fast, very easy to fly and handle and in the European-Versions very cheap per hour.
But in the USA there is a special US-Version "Eclipse C-1" with a Continental Engine, I don't now that price. She has a Fix-Prop and Mixture, so a complete other Aircraft than the DV-20 and DA-20 in Europe (with Constant-Speed Prop and Auto-Mixture).
But some of this (DA and DV-20) are flying in the USA as well, maybe you have a chance. Many Flying-Schools and -Center are using this Aircrafts.

Yes, it would be nice if we find some other aviation enthusiasts and could have a little chat about this. :-)
