    On Friday, I received my 1975 Beech Sierra. (I still have the Musketeer
    (200 hp) if anyone has some interest)

    Anyway, I wanted to comment on the Ferry Pilot I used, Aaron Kahn from
    flyit4U.com

    He came in about 30% under the contract price, had the plane right on
    time from Hayward (San Fran) to British Columbia in one day!

    In addition, he was always in touch through the flight itself and the
    weeks preceding.

    If you ever need a ferry pilot, I can highly recommend Aaron and
    Flyit4U.com.

    Not to hijack a thread but you are now in the two airplane club? I joined that club for a while. I bought a Skipper, intending to downgrade from my Sundowner. It was fun for a while being able to say "what plane am I going to fly today?". But it got awful thin after a
    while! Finally my wife laid down the law and said one plane had to go NOW. I had the Sundowner up for sale but it was taking its sweet time (high-time airframe).

    So I put the Skipper on the market too. It sold in less than a month for a substantial amount more than I paid for it (which helped me break even from the new prop I had to hang on it). My next plan was to sell the Sundowner and downgrade to a two-seater (I was hoping a C150 Aerobat; my Sundowner is aerobatic).

    But then I just realized how nice the Sundowner is to fly (much nicer than the Skipper BTW, which had a yaw stability/dutch roll issue in turbulence that actually made me queazy and I don't get airsick even with aerobatics). So I cut a deal with a flying buddy. When I just
    want to scoot around the neibourhood economically, I will fly his C150; when he needs to go places or carry a load, he will use my Sundowner. Each pays his own fuel.

    If I get one more, Cloyd promises me I will get the three blind mice
    award!

    I have no intention of keeping the Musketeer for much longer. 4
    separate deals have been put together on that plane in the last 2 months
    and they have all fallen apart for one reason or another. One because
    the "buyers are liars" thing, two were timing and the last one was the
    money could not be found when the deal was to close.

    The Musketeer is a solid plane, the 200hp engine and fixed pitch prop
    make it a very stable, simple single. Lots of power and the room are
    also two major pluses for this plane.

    Yep, I am a member of the two airplane club, but the membership will not
    be renewed ()

    PS - My wife was the one who pushed me to purchase the Sierra. The
    Sierra is my dream plane, so she is on board. Yep, lucky is this guy!
