A different twist on &quotYes Dear&quot

As probably one of the few female readers of this post, I’d like to offer a differnt spin on the “Yes Dear” posts – think of what your significant other (I’m assuming non-pilot) is thinking…

“Yes Dear” - we can buy something that costs more than a second house (and probably more than most people’s first house – yes, I know, houses don’t fly us off to fun places on weekends)…

“Yes Dear” - we can have customized covers, nose plugs, chalks, etc., etc.,…

“Yes Dear” - we can go to Duluth in January to pick up our plane when the hi is -5 degrees…

But the ultimate…

“Yes Dear” - I’ll start taking flying lessons (only after 8 years of breaking me down did my husband hear me utter these words this week):slight_smile:

But seriously, as a non-pilot I LOVE the SR20 – we just picked ours up about 4 weeks ago and everything is great (except for the minor hiccups pretty much everyone else has experienced) – I’ve never been a big fan of flying in 20+ year old planes BUT when I sat in the SR20 at the AOPA expo last year I was totally sold – everything about it is wonderful and I hope you all enjoy your fantastic machines.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

I hope your significant other apreciates how lucky he is (in this respect and I would surmise many others!) to be partnered with someone who enjoys flying as you do. I am similarly blessed to be married to a terrific lady who, among her many outstanding qualities, loves to fly with me as often as she can.

I have observed a number of relationships in which one of the partners is ambivalent or even disdainful of the other’s enthusiasm for flying, and it is sad for both.

Congratulations and I hope you both get a lot of “idiot grin time” flying together in N96706!

Thanks for your post Robin. I’m hoping for the same reaction from my wife when I get her into the Cirrus at 2001 EAA this year.

I believw she harbors the same thoughts re: 30+ year old planes I fly.

My guess(read hope) is she will love it too.
