I'm cheap...and almost a grand for an hour is a bit much for dual. Also, a local friend has a T-6....I will offer fuel $$ and see if I can get a ride. Hoping the Chief owner will give me an answer this week as well, so holding onto $$ to try to snag it. That grand will go much further in my eyes if it helps me get back in the air. As the old saying goes, "Money makes the plane go up..." Besides, my wife has enough clothes......!
