Default Millenials

Today I finally passed the milestone of 1000 hours on my RV-12 that I finished in March 2012. Iím curious to know just how exclusive the millennial club is.

Congrats! It is a milestone indeed. Just getting broken in.
It has been done a time or two. Next stop 2000.

Maybe the OP should have rephrased is statement that he has over 1,000 hours on his ROTAX 912 ULS in his RV-12. Are you interested in measuring hours on the airframe, or powerplant, or both? Is # of gallons of gas and type of gas also worth measuring, too?

I hope to start adding hours to my Rotax 912 ULS at a good clip, soon. Plenty of opportunities to fly year round in Southern California. If we don't have fires, poor air quality and visibility problems or earthquakes, or mudslides, or civil unrest.

Having just turned 69 at the current rate I think my flying days will run out right at TBO. The only thing better is dying in your bed of old age with an empty bank account and maxed out credit!😝
