No plane, but 18 hours in a Cessna 152, and a few hours in other planes including a Piper Arrow, a Travelair biplane, an AT6 and a 172. Nice plane! Wish I had the cash to continue. Love flying.

The only lycra I wear is bike shorts under regular shorts. On really cold days, a hoodie is a good option because you can tie it around your waist if it gets too warm. Very low tech.
