SCREW IT! I'm Becoming A PILOT *Sky Cars*

I've always wanted to get my pilots license so I decided to stop talking about it and make the jump. I called a CFI friend of mine I've flown with quite a few times, got some recommendations, and got straight to work. Hopefully I can knock ground school out quickly, then pass a checkride and fly around in my own sky car!
Online Ground School:
Nissan Titan Battery:
Shop Motul:
Common Questions:
What motorcycle do I ride? A few. Ducati 1198, Honda Goldwing, Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus
What do I do for a living? Make AM-posts videos.
Can you wheelie? No, I suck.
Are you fast? Sort of. I suck mostly though.
Where can I keep up with you off the bike?
Instagram: WatchJRGo
Facebook: WatchJRGo (or JRGo, FB hates my branding)
Do you go to school? College, for 2 classes.
Why do you ride so dangerously? What do mean? I was doing 25.
Do you go to the track? Of course, hopefully there will be videos in the future.
Do you play video games? No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Twitch: WatchJRGo
Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

I always figured if you owned a Saab then you were automatically a pilot... ?

@Flies2FLL I get that. Still resembles the jet in my opinion. If memory serves me correctly they also put the ignition key on the console so a knee couldn't impact it on collision.

No SAAB were Dr cars. Most airline pilots have an old beater 😆. Usually a pickup truck because when they ar at work usually gone for 4-6 days and don’t want a nice car sitting in the airport parking lot 😆👍🏼

@chriscat9 The Saab bulging windshield was done for safety reasons. It had nothing to do with aviation, the two groups split in the1960's if I remember properly. A windshield as forward as possible is FAR safer. VW put the windshield way far away on their MK1 Golf [VW Rabbit], but Saab did the same thing by curving it.

Good luck you will do well. Study hard and get alot of hours under your belt. Who knows maybe one day I will serve you on a large equipment!

Congratulations on your flight training from a young 121 airline pilot. Once you start flying, you’ll love it! It’s the true definition of freedom, especially once you own your own airplane. I wish you blue skies and a tailwind!

Make sure you get your Class 3 medical. I've had a shit ton of problems getting my Class 1 due to ADHD diagnosis and had to talk to people on forums and top AME doctors in the country. If you have any pre-existing diagnosis don't get your medical yet.

I've had my pilot's license for 40 years and the number of times that people told me, they always wanted to be a pilot. I'd think, no they didn't, or they would be one. I've watched you for some time and found you to be an organized and methodical person, that's what it takes. It is work and intense concentration. You've made a good first step, keep at it. You'll never view the World the same way again.

Jason Schappert got me through the 107 license. Definitely recommend. Surprisingly the 107 was $150 lifetime. The weather piece was one of the most difficult to grasp. Throw away any knowledge you have on weather and it will be easier.

Really enjoy watching your videos. Hey good for you going for your private pilots license. I’m a pilot with the RCAF and have fond memories of flight training... the times, that is, I wasn’t being yelled at 😂. I do remember my first solo vividly (only 2 circuits) as it contained two of the sketchiest landings possible! Lol. Again good for you and best of luck. 😃

Down the rabbit hole you go. Start looking at building your own kit plane. Also good luck buying type ratings for jets when you don’t plan on flying for a living.. you’ll pay A LOT out of pocket which is why airlines train and type their pilots.

Your flight instructor will tell you this, but go ahead and get a copy of the FAR/AIM. It will definitely clear up any shortcomings, like the runway direction/wind sock comment about ground school.

I wanted to get a PPL ever since I was a kid and we had a family-owned Cherokee. The years have flown past, and now I can't get the medical card. To this day, that's the only plane I've ever been up in. I'm planning on living vicariously through you. Remember the phrase "VFR into IMC". Learn it. FEAR it.

What ever estimate you hear for time and money...double it. Seriously, I'm not kidding. Especially the time. Weather, maintenance, plane availability, CFI availability, your availability, they never seem to match up well. Learn the ground school, don't just "get through it." Good luck.

Back in 1973, there was a flying Ford Pinto called the Mizar aircar. It met a fiery end just like some on the ground Pinto owners did.

I used to ride with my academy roommate, who would sign out one of USNA's flight-club planes at Fort Meade. That routine experience pretty much ensured I would go subs. He made a career in aerospace (NASA). Maybe it was the negative-g's he pulled that turned me off (just after lunch). Before moving to Europe in 1998, I had only been to the old continent by boat. Then, I had my first transatlantic flight on September 1st, 1998; Swissair Flight 111....this was the last successful flight of that ill-fated MD-11. Pretty much sealed the deal for me on any thoughts of recreational flying. Today, I am looking forward to the Microsoft Simulator reboot. Cheaper and safer than a private pilot's license, IMHO. In any event, complete respect for the pilot licensing process. It is a commendable endeavor.

There's no better place to learn to fly than America's aviation capital: Wichita. I've been there many times to attend FlightSafety International training. After you get your private license skip the commercial license and multi-engine rating until you get an instrument rating. It will do more for your safety and proficiency than anything else.

I'm a former CFI and MEI. You should get yourself a copy online of the PPL test. (I'm listening and you just said you got the ground school course already. Runway is magnetically marked..."Runway 30"is 300° ,magnetic for example. Normally progression is private, instrument, commercial, multiengine, CFI, CFII and ATP at 1,500 plus a restricted radio telegraph operators permit and ground instructor's rating basic and advanced. A type rating is required for any pure turbine or any other aircraft exceeding a max gross takeoff weight of 12,500 #'s. You will do great! The last commercial flight I had was don't quote me! Lol Perhaps with your fame, you might get invited to ride "right seat" in a single pilot certified Cessna Citation or King Air! Any jet requiring two pilots you'd have to have at least a private with multi engine and instrument rating to be second in command and normally have enough total time and time in that specific aircraft to meet the insurance minimums. Get your PPL written out of the way when you can. A lot of people just go to a weekend ground school. Two days and you are guaranteed to pass the test. It makes it a breeze! Wow! These will be great new video's! You know what training aircraft yet? Many use the venerable C-172.

Hmm... that ground school program doesn't sound so great from your description. Check out the ground school from Sporty's Pilot Shop. It's definitely a quality school and their Learn To Fly courses are top notch and their test prep is exceptional. They guarantee you'll pass your written or your money back. I used them when I got my Private, Instrument, and Commercial licenses.
