I just got a member of the COPA after looking thru the Guest Discussion for a few days.
For all the guests: it paid off a few hundred times immediately, after finding some posts which interested me, because I wasn´t quite sure what I will have to buy.
I found also the german corner inside COPA, and tried to get some more information about bringing over a plane to Europe. There a some nice and helpful storys about the things, you should know before buying a plane, about ferry flights, and so many other helpful posts, it´s unbelievabel. Even Checklists ! That helped me a lot to come closer to a decision.
I´m a german vfr-pilot, with an US (since 1997) and a German PPL. I didn´t flew to much in the past couple years because I don´t like flying in the old Cessna´s and Pipers without autopilot and gps, which my flight club runs. And after having a demo flight in Florida in 2006 on a SR22, it become every time harder to see and fly these old planes. If you once flew a Cirrus, things change…
My wish: finding one, two or three partners in the area Würzburg / Nürnberg.
Kind regards for your statements ! [;)]
Excuse my bad english and all the little mistakes…Hopefully everybody understands it…
