There's alot to be said for the
gentleman/womans flying club
- you save lifes, help the nation, meet famous people, use prop fighters (more than your average C172) and you'll never go to war- it's a great free ride, once you can put up with the training- and pass the mental exams- not for me though.

(Also it tends to be the cheapest way into commercial aviation, these days- I'm not that interested though- but others I know would kill (war pun) to get in). :lol:
