I earned my PPL in 2018 and have a single engine land (high performance) rating. As a native Coloradan (yes we do exist) I love Colorado and have always wanted to see more of it faster (thus fly there). After learning in a C172 I knew that a C182 was more my style. My main goal has been to get over the mountains to the west. Of my 170 hours to date, I’ve had over 30 hours of mountain flying training (and flying). I have also been flying myself to business meetings to places that are no longer easy to drive to!
