If I only had a plane...

My career involves frequent travel. As a pilot, I often dream of flying myself and team to and from important meetings. Imagine no flight schedules, no TSA, just go when you wish (and when weather permits).

Sure, flying my own plane invloves more work (flight planning, navigation, challenging weather, etc.) and cost (flying is not cheap), but the same holds true for a car. Think about it, driving your car is more expensive than taking public transportation, but you're able to go where you please whenever you want. Time is money.

What would I fly? Well, a jet or a turboprop would be too much plane for the job. Instead, I'd want something reliable and capable of carrying 4 people for 4 hours, like a Cirrus SR22.

Maybe some day my dream will become a reality. I enjoy my work and flying, so it would be great if I could do both.

If there's a will, there's a way. Now, if I only had the means...
