Rosie, congrats on your mega mile year of rv flying. i knew it would be impossible to catch you on a caribbean boosting mileage trip but congrats on your rv victory.

Default 500,000 miles




good morning rosie. the miles shown was split equally between the rv and r44. ill get a pic from the rv later. some extra thrown in by the helicycle and i fell just short of 50,000 miles for the year.


total miles on the rv at this time is over 500,000 miles. all odometers are reset for 2015. keep on building and dreaming.


QUESTION, in 496 pic, exactly where am i? come on vlad. give me your best.

Talking No odometer for a rookie flyer

Turbo I don't have an odometer. I flew only 622 tach hours in 2014.

Only 622? Man, that's more than some airline pilots fly in a year!

And then there's my RV hobbs meter for 2014; 42 hours, my lowest ever in 8 years of flying it. I gotta do more in 2015...

Yes, only 622 unevenly spread over 259 VFR days. The result is below. Aspiring builders if you think your main expenses are in the hardware think again
