      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Yeah, how much is gas/hr flying? I'm a poor unemployed dirtbag climber cry.gif so any of you rich pilots out there that want some company, let me know. I gotta save my money for beer. bigdrink.gif C'mon, I'll regail you with entertaining stories about my climbing misadventures, like the time I got a sweet handjam and then got bit by a snaf.gif hiding in the crack. hahaha.gif (That's a free one, next one'll cost ya).

I am of poor folk myself! It is really expensive to get ratings to fly yes, but I make it happen somehow. I live cheap, I am extremely selfish with my money, and I have no life! I actually have to take a break for a while cuz of money reasons...it just happens.

 

The Cessna that I fly, burns about 8-10 gallons and hour. I plan for a 10 gallon fuel burn as a buffer. I flew 4 hours round trip to Boeing Field.....just a little engine...doesn't cruise very fast...100 knots or so.

 

I work at a kickass place where I can talk to pilots all day and I get a good deal on plane usage. Friends with planes are awesome! The owner of the plane I use now is really good to me and rents it out for a great price. And of course, since the company I work for sells fuel, I get a major discount on fuel. Normally it is about $3.10 a gallon but you can shop around for a good deal or a special that someone like Clay Lacy runs at BFI. I got two overnight tiedown fees waived because I bought fuel and kept my plane there. My pro-rated gas price from work is really good, and I probably can only tell you that much cuz it is ridiculious how little I pay.

 

Very fun indeed! I love taking passengers up and watch the look on there face when we land in that little aircraft! So far I have taken some of my family up and a few friends including Ryland, whom posts here occasionally.
