Five Years and Counting
With a fuel stop in Youngstown, OH, we finished the 6.6 hour trip right around 1900 EDT.
In the five years since that day I've flown N631S for 566.4 hours. We've been to Colorado and to North Carolina. We've flown 16 night hours and 36.3 actual IMC hours. We've shot 73 instrument approaches, 23 in actual conditions and the rest "under the hood".
N631S has had its interior completely refurbished and its avionics suite thoroughly upgraded. (One of these days, the airplane will get the paint job I've promised it.)
Having N631S available makes my rather strange schedule - weekdays in CT, weekends in VA - possible. Couldn't do it without the airplane.
Five years into it, I'm sure we acquired the perfect airplane for our needs and I'm looking forward to many more years with it.
