Yeah got tired of flying with 60 year old pilots and 80 year old FAs on the 787. Plus I can't bang Asian hookers since we stopped flying to Asia. :o
I couldn't remember if you went to the 787 or 777.
383 from HNL goes around like 1/3rd of the time :rofl: I don't know what it is, they can never get stable. Leave em on the transition all the way in, go around. RNAV Z, go around. Visual with their speeds all the way in, goes around.

I have nothing to add about getting a PPL by the way. I got mine 25 years ago and all I know is it's more expensive now.

My family is in aviation. Stepdad was a pilot for Pan-Am 747's.
Stepbro is the lead training pilot for Delta.

I thought about getting my private. My research showed you can do an immersive. Rather than spacing out the program over a few weeks or months, there are schools that you can bootcamp for like a week plus and do all the certs.

Some people said, longer training was better. You have time to absorb it.
Some people said immersive was better cause you learn it all at once.

I usually prefer immersive. Might still get my license at some point.

What’s the smartest way to getting into private plane ownership / group ownership if you don’t plan on getting a pilot’s license?

If you don’t plan on getting a pilots license?
What are you going to do with the plane, take selfies?
