I was just wondering how many Bullitt owners are licensed pilots (private, commercial, etc)?? I've always dreamed of having a P-51D Mustang that the Bullitt could have a relationship with. :lol: Right now, I'll stick to the Cezzna put put machine. I have 85 'legal' hours, private pilot rating. I'm 19, soloed at 14, first took control at age 3. Would be in the Air Force if my vision was perfect.

A&P (working as an unemployed software developer) who will be a pilot in the next few years. Doesn't really get me in the club, but I am an aviation nut none-the-less :cool:

A couple hundred hours Private stuck-wing and about 5,000 rotorcraft...Currently doing EMS in Tucson, but have worked in Hawaii, Southern California, Gulf of Mexico, and Southeast Alaska...and have loved every minute!
I think pilots really appreciate the Bullitt...design, performance, and LOOKS!

I agree with you Dennis...the Bullitt somehow in someway reminds me of flying...I don't know why, but sometimes I get the urge to pull back on her steering wheel... :smile:

Does it count if we are "flying a desk"?

Did'nt think so.

Some of us are just too grounded.

a C177, eh? I've always wanted to try one of those out, they look much different than the other Cessnas...no wing struts, etc). They sit very low. How does it fly? I personally would not mind adding a P-51D to my logbook. Either that or a Commander to my hanger. :smile:

I got all kind of time in a P51D, Spitefire, Me262, FW190, Eurofighter2000, SU-27. F-22, F-16C Block50/52 Falcon. Thousands of AI kills, and many online human kills. Thanks to Internet, Micro Prose and DID. :wink:

Hey, I was a pilot...does that count? The events of September 11th really messed up the airline industry. I am a furloughed Delta Airlines pilot, a B-727 Second Officer. I was hired at Delta in March of '01 and furloughed in November '01. Prior to that I was a Canadair Regional Jet Captain at Comair Airlines, a Delta Connection carrier. I got my start in aviation with the Navy flight program fresh out of college. I am a former Naval Aviator who flew the SH-60B Seahawk helicopter on active duty. I have about 5,500 total flight hours, an ATP and one type rating in the Canadair Regional Jet. Hope to get called back to fly at Delta soon. I am not holding my breath.

Keep the shiney side up and the rubber side down. :smile:

Collin

Badkharma, I love flying the Cardinal! Flying the Saratoga (300hp)with 3 couples fully loaded I can get 135kts...with two couples in the cardinal (200hp) I can get the same speed. The 177 is a much more stable IFR platform, more responsive, faster for not much more $$ than a 172. Not to mention I enjoy flying a HP/complex/constant spd prop
plane. I have a friend with the Stearman that I get free tail dragger time...talk about seat of the pants flying!

Passed my checkride last November (2000). Have not flown since. Wife is trying to bribe me into never flying again by buying me the Bullitt. I don't think she gets it, either the Bullitt or flying.

BadKharma,

Sorry man, I know how you feel. It has always been my dream too. After 6 years of working on aircraft I never thought I would get there. It still seems a blur. The Air Force has treated me very well and I owe everything to Uncle (Air Force) Sam. They paid for my bachelors degree and even let me take 6 months off from work (paid) to finish. It's an opportunity of a lifetime.

I know you have probably checked into it, but is your vision correctable? I know a lot of pilots who have vision problems but are still flying since it is correctable. Don't forget there is a major shortage of pilots and a lot of the requirements (including age) have become lower than Pre-1995 requirements. Check into it, and never give up on your dreams. Good Luck

Oh yeah,
I owe most of it to my NEW wife. She has pushed me all along and supports me in everything I do. She gave me that extra push to finish our first front engine dragster and then supported me when I built the second one in three weeks. They are both sold now since we are leaving England, but we had fun. I proposed to her in the fire-up road in the second car. Romantic, huh :smile:
That's why I actually bought the Bullitt for her. I showed her the article in Hot Rod and asked what she thought, and immediately she wanted it.
Next???? We are planning on getting an alcohol funny car after UPT. (Undergraduate Pilot Training)
No-- she isn't standing behind me insisting I write this. She is down range supporting our country at war, leaving me at home surfing the Bullitt boards 24/7.

Sorry, no pictures of #4069, its still in at her parents house in San Diego.
