I received my private pilot's license in 1976 after attending
Oregon State University (OSU) and was a member of the OSU Flying
Club. Most of my training was in high-wing Cessna-150's, 152's and
172's, but I've also flown some small low-wing Pipers on
For the last few years of my employment with Los Alamos National Lab I owned two Cessna 175's (very similar to a 172 but with more horsepower) that allowed me to travel to nearby work sites, as necessary, from our ranch in Oregon. Recently, I sold one of the planes, and I may soon have another plane for sale... interested?
Many years ago I created a "One-Click Weather" page to show current and forecasted weather along some of my routes. It's a bit outdated now, and some of the links no longer work, but you can see what I had in mind to make preflight weather planning a bit easier...
