    I was co-pilot in a friend's Cessna 182 Turbo for the day. He just bought it, so we're planning to do some regular flying around North America. This is at 2500 above sea level.

    Any pilots in here? Anyone thinking about it?

    The pictures are exhilarating.Though I am not a pilot, I have experienced similar breath taking views (of mountains and valleys) from a chopper here in India.

    Nice pictures!

    I wouldn't be able to get away with this where I live (I'm barely able to own a classic car out here in California), although possibly sometime next year I'm looking to move somewhere that's not as suffocating as California, both literally and metaphorically, so I suppose if I got into aviation, I would look into ultralight flying.

    The planes are apparently cheaper than most cars (around $8,000 to $15,000 new) and there's no licensing required, although I'd still get training regardless. Anyway, do you have any experience with ultralight planes?

    You post was inside my quote. :)

    It looks like with proper training, the crashes can be handled pretty well.

    Nice shots but in this day and age I am surprised that you are allowed to fly over a city like that in a private plane.
    Is that the airfield that you took off from in the photos?

    I absolutely fell in love with Toronto after a 2 week holiday there. Amazing city, amazing country.

    Ya, crashes can be handled pretty well in everything but helicopters. Helicopters have auto-rotation but that's not much. You don't need much experience to fly ultralight.



    Nope, we took off from an International Airport south of there. Air traffic made a route for us through the city after we requested the "city tour"


    Yes it is. Very nice plane. Probably about $100k in electronic in it alone. It had autopilot and everything.


    Yes, my friend owned the plane and we flew it together, taking turns.


    I will!
